EEHA Pathway

  • To undertake work on Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas (EEHA) that meets the requirements of AS/NZS 60079.14 and AS/NZS 60079.17.

Instrumentation & Control Pathway

  • To enhance students’ PLC and electrical instrumentation skills and provide exposure to process instrumentation and control used in the industry.

Renewable Energy Pathway

  • To provide a pathway for electricians to Clean Energy Council Grid Connected PV Design and Installation Accreditation to design, install, configure, test and commission grid connected power supply systems.


Students who hold an unrestricted electrical license issued by a state or Territory and are successfully competent in both theoretical and practical training, completing all units of competency in the training package (refer https://training.gov.au/Training/Details/UEE40620), will receive the full qualification

Electrotechnology – Systems Electrician

This qualification provides competencies to:

  • Select, install, test, maintain and inspect electrical equipment in hazardous areas (EEHA) in a gas and dust atmospheres; or
  • Select, install, commission, fault find and maintain electrical and instrumentation equipment in buildings, premises, instrumentation systems and core instrumentation equipment; or
  • Select, design and install grid-connected PV systems, develop and assess strategies for energy loads and energy efficiency in domestic, commercial and industrial properties and enterprises

It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’

  • 15 Days
  • $5,000

Delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres – Perth, Karratha & Adelaide; or at a client’s facility.

This post-trade professional development gap training in electrotechnology is aimed at and encourages candidates who would like to gain knowledge and “hands-on” skills in

  • Electrical equipment in hazardous area (EEHA) work in the installation, maintenance, testing and detailed inspection, or
  • PLC and process instrumentation using interface with HART field instrumentation, or
  • Grid-connected PV systems design and install, strategies for energy efficiency and assessing energy loads and energy efficiency

A current electrical license (any Australian state or territory) is required. Electrical engineers who meet the pre-requisites for electrical equipment in hazardous areas, PLC and Instrumentation units will be issued Statement of Attainment for the units they have successfully completed.

You will undergo face to face to one practical training with industry experienced, qualified Electrical Professional Trainers with hands on experience in installation, inspection and remediation work in Hazardous areas and instrumentation with HART compliant field instruments and Allen Bradley PLC Control System:

EEHA Pathway

The hand on training on the purpose-built hazardous areas skids include the following:

  • Principles of hazardous area classification
  • Explosion-protection techniques;
  • Standards and Codes of practice
  • Reading and understanding hazardous area classification drawing
  • Name plate reading exercise for Ex d, Ex e, Ex n, Ex i, Ex m and Ex t techniques
  • Reading Certificate of Conformity
  • Specific installation requirements for different types of Ex techniques
  • 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 and list the required remedial actions.

Instrumentation & Control Pathway

The hand on training on the purpose-built instrumentation and control skid include the following:

  • Pressure (suppression/elevation of transmitter)
  • Level Radar / Ultrasonic configuration
  • Conductivity level configuration
  • Flow – configuration and control including Magnetic flow meter operations
  • Calibration of Temperature Transmitter with RTD and Thermocouple
  • Program digital and analog PLC. Download, test and fault find PLC program on PLC hardware
  • Configuration of smart devices via HART Modem and Hand-Held Configurator
  • Reading P&ID and 2 and 4 Wire loop drawings. Verify the drawings against as installed equipment

Renewable Energy Pathway

  • Shading Analysis (Path Finder and Sun path diagram)
  • PV Systems for different types
  • Rails, modules, DC Isolator
  • Pre-commissioning tests, Commissioning and Fault-finding
  • Load analysis, loses and efficiencies
  • Strategies to increase use of energy efficient methods in domestic, commercial and industrial installations including the use of different renewable resources

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

Blended delivery of 60% theory and 40% practical training with equipment that you are likely to see in a typical industrial environment with

  • Electrical equipment in hazardous area (EEHA); or
  • HART rated instrumentation and final control elements with PLC control system, or
  • Grid-connected PV systems and domestic, commercial and industrial energy loads

The course includes in-class progressive assessment; short answer tests on

  • Hazardous area fundamentals; equipment marking; equipment certification; and, device interpretation or
  • Hands on PLC programming, testing and fault finding, solving problems in pressure, density, level, flow and temperature instruments, wiring, calibration and loop testing, or
  • Shading Analysis, PV install for different roof types, rails, modules, DC Isolator, pre-commissioning, commissioning and fault-finding. Load analysis, load efficiencies and strategies to increase the energy efficiency using different renewable resources
