Safeguard your career – Learn how to inspect, classify, install and protect electrical wiring in hazardous areas
Hazardous Area Wiring (HAW) – Initial Course
Wiring in hazardous areas can be deadly and cause fire or explosions if incorrectly installed. This five-day, hands-on course will give you the skills to properly select, install, maintain, inspect, and test explosion-protected equipment and control systems.
This course is appropriate for electricians who work in hazardous areas and work with explosion-protected equipment and control systems.
This training is free to unemployed ETU members.

The Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas course gives students the competency to undertake electrical work in a hazardous area and aligns to the requirements outlined in AS/NZS 4761 Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas (EEHA).
This course is for anyone involved in the ‘hands-on’ side of hazardous area electrical work, i.e. the installation, maintenance or inspection of hazardous area electrical equipment. Electricians and instrument technicians are the most common attendees, but we also train electrical engineers who perform inspections as part of their role.
The course covers the theory and practice of field work in hazardous areas. Through a combination of theory and practical activities, participants will gain the knowledge and skills to report, inspect, install, maintain and attend breakdowns of electrical equipment in a potential explosive environment.
