EEHA Training (Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas)

How much do you know about Hazardous Areas?

Course Description
This Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas course covers the principles of hazardous area installation, maintenance, inspections, and breakdowns of explosion-protection equipment with a high emphasis of practical inspections. Our Hazardous Area Training course has been designed with a new starter in mind but with enough technical knowledge to stimulated the most educated student. So if you plan to work in the LNG industry, Coal industry, or petrochemical industries than Volt Edge is the training provider you need when completing your Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas.

The training material covered in this course is written by the founder and owner of this business, Tony McKewin. Creating this business as an electrican and an electrical engineer, you can trust that this course is industry specific. As apart of the Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas – Electrical, this course covers 21 units of competency meant to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to fulfil your role in the Hazardous Area workplace.

Incorporating a broad spectrum of skills, this course covers the explosion-protection aspects of plant and machinery operation and maintenance; of attending to a breakdown in a hazardous area or of explosion-protected and associated equipment; for installing explosion-protected and associated equipment and wiring systems; for maintaining explosion-protected and associated equipment and wiring systems; and of conducting initial, periodic and sample audit inspections close and detailed inspections of explosion-protected equipment and installations.

In the endeavour to become proficient in such skills, students will require the ability to visually identify any damage or deterioration of explosion-protected equipment, monitor changes in the explosion hazard and to implement procedures established to limit the risk of an explosion; ascertain the nature of a breakdown, the extent of repairs required and the personnel needed to repair the breakdown; match equipment with that specified for a given location, work safely, and to installation standards and complete the necessary installation documentation; follow a maintenance program, work safely, carry out maintenance to Standards and manufacturer instructions and complete the necessary maintenance documentation; and use a verification dossier, work safely in a hazardous area, inspect against Standards and report and act on inspection results.
