Our EEHA Installation & Maintenance course covers the following:
Principles of hazardous area classification
Equipment installation requirements
Procedures for breakdowns and maintenance
Theory and practical components
Visual and detailed inspections
Our comprehensive EEHA Installation & Maintenance course Training offers participants the opportunity to obtain nationally recognised competencies that also meet the requirements of Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4761.
This 4 day Installation and Maintenance of Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas course is derived from the latest UEE11 Electrotechnology Training package.
Competency Training’s facilities offer hazardous area inspection boards developed in conjunction with NHP. They cover the four most common explosion protection techniques used in industry, Intrinsically Safe (Ex i), Flameproof (Ex d) and Increased Safety (Ex e) for flammable gas environments and Protection by Enclosure (Ex tD) for flammable dust environments. Students are required to carry out a detailed hazardous area inspection on all pieces of equipment on each board looking for various faults.
The inspections focus on the specific installation requirements of each technique and each hazardous area zone. The faults on the boards cover issues such as terminations, ingress protection, damage to equipment, cable glanding, gland selection, cable requirements, labelling, certification, special conditions of use and equipment suitability to name a few.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for electrical workers, technicians and engineers involved with installing and maintaining electrical equipment in hazardous areas. In accordance with the AS/NZS 60079.14 requirement for continuing education, Competency Training recommends that this Hazardous Area training course is refreshed every 2-3 years.
