This program provides the practical skills and knowledge to select, install, commission, maintain and test explosion-protected equipment and systems for control and monitoring of plant and processes. It is mapped directly to AS/NZS 4761.1 Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas and covers gas atmospheres, dust atmospheres and pressurisation.
The 4-day course is delivered face-to-face using facilitation, presentations, and practical individual and group activities. All assessment activities are completed in class.
This course delivers 17 units towards the nationally recognised post-trade qualification in Hazardous Areas – Electrical (UEE42611).
On completion of this course, the additional 4 units required to achieve the full Certificate IV Hazardous Areas – Electrical qualification can be undertaken in the 2-day gap training program.
(Note: The other 19 units required for the full Certificate IV Hazardous Areas – Electrical qualification are part of the Certificate III in Electrotechnology – Electrician. Most participants will already have completed these to gain their electrical licence, credit transfer or recognition of prior learning (RPL) will apply.)
