  • 2 days (Delivered on day 2 and 3 of UEE42620 Certificate IV In Hazardous Areas Electrical)
  • $1200
  • $1,500 (Karratha/Regional Delivery)

Delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres (Perth, Karratha, Adelaide and Brisbane), or at a client’s facility.

This post-trade professional development refresher 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.

PRE-REQUISITES
The course is post-trade training, so we usually require a current electrical license (any Australian state or territory) or instrumentation trade certificate as a pre-requisite. Electrical Engineers who complete the inspection units of competency marked * in the table above, will be entitled to receive the SOA. If you have other qualifications or you’re unsure please just give us a call, we may still be able to help.

You will undergo training with industry experienced, qualified Electrical Professional Trainers with hands on experience in installation, inspection and remediation work in Hazardous areas. The training will review the following knowledge and skill assessment (optional):

  • EEHA Principles
  • HA Classification
  • Ex Protection techniques
  • Ex Certification
  • Ex Installation Practices
  • Ex Testing, Maintenance and Inspection Practices
  • Changes in AS/NZS Series of Standards

Blended delivery of 90% theory and 10% practical training with equipment that you are likely to see in a typical industrial environment with electrical equipment in hazardous areas (EEHA). The course includes in-class progressive assessment; short answer tests on hazardous area fundamentals; equipment marking; equipment certification; and, device interpretation.
