what this course delivers

This Hazardous Area Classification & Design course covers the following information:

  • Properties of explosive gases/vapours and combustible dusts
  • Hazardous area classification procedures and techniques for gas and vapour installations and for combustible dusts
  • Recommended methods for documenting the classification
  • Protection techniques
  • Equipment selection
  • Earthing requirements
  • EX i entity calculations
  • EX e motor protection and cable derating requirements
  • Maximum dissipated power calculations
  • General design principles

Students participate in a range of activities during the training, including some group classification and design work.

Our comprehensive Hazardous Area Classification & Design Training course is an advanced course, intended for electrical workers, technicians, engineers and senior engineers involved in area classification for electrical equipment in hazardous areas. Participants will be assessed and have the  opportunity to obtain  nationally recognised  competencies that also meet the requirements of Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4761.

Our Hazardous Area Classification & Design Training courses are delivered by qualified, experienced trainers who are all currently practicing as  engineers and designers in the electrical and instrumentation industries, and have experience across multiple  disciplines.

Who should attend

This is an advanced course, intended for technicians, electricians, engineers and senior engineers involved with the design of electrical installations in hazardous areas and in area classification.

Course pathway

Electricians who have completed the EEHA Installation & Maintenance course will meet all prerequisite requirements for this course.

If the Design component is not required, students have the option to complete theHazardous Areas Classification course.

Students who have completed this course have the option to complete the Conduct a Conformity Assessment course through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
