This EEHA training is delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres (Perth, Karratha & Adelaide), or at a client’s facility.

This course is for electrical workers involved in the “hands-on” side of hazardous area electrical work, i.e. the installation, maintenance or inspection of EEHA. 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.

Pre Requisites

The course is post-trade training, so we require a current unrestricted electrical license (any Australian state or territory) as a pre-requisite. Electrical engineers meet the pre-requisites for the inspection related units only.

You will undergo one on one practical training with industry experienced, qualified Electrical Professional Trainers with hands on experience in installation, inspection and remediation work in Hazardous areas. The training will include inspection on the purpose-built hazardous areas skids in the following areas:

  • Principles and classification;
  • Explosion-protection techniques;
  • Standards and Codes of practice
  • Reading and understanding hazardous area classification drawings
  • Name plate reading exercise for Ex d, Ex e and Ex i
  • Reading Certificate of Conformity
  • Equipment selection, installation, breakdowns and maintenance requirements;
  • permit to work and safe isolations and testing;
  • Making up of Ex d Barrier Gland
  • Detailed inspection on Ex e/Ex d box and Ex i loop on PMV Hazardous Areas Skids

PMV offers a small size class with flexible training to accommodate difficult rosters / work schedules.

In accordance with the AS/NZS 60079.14 requirement for continuing education, PMV recommends that the EEHA Installation and Maintenance competencies are refreshed every 3 years. PMV offers EEHA Refresher training.
