This 5 day course and is intended for Electrical workers and Electrical Engineers. This course covers the practical aspects of the course content with emphasis on inspection and testing.
This qualification provides competencies to supervise selection, installation, commissioning maintenance and testing of explosion-protected equipment and systems for control and monitoring of plant and processes. The qualification provides competencies in working with explosion protections techniques with elections in how they apply to, gas and dust atmospheres. It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’ and competencies to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain stand-alone renewable energy equipment and systems.
Candidates must hold a current ‘Unrestricted Electricians’ licence or qualified Electrical Engineers Electrical Engineers must provide proof of their qualifications.
Theory and practical training.
The requirements for granting this qualification and the issue of certification will be met when competency is demonstrated and achieved for all core competency units listed below in combination with the course electives delivered in this training package.

Graduates who are successfully competent in both theoretical and practical training completing all units of competency listed above, will be awarded a Statement of Attainment (SOA).A Statement of Attainment is issued when an individual has completed one or more accredited units. These competencies form part of UEE42611 Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas – Electrical
This course is run over two days and is a recommended refresher course aimed at keeping students current. It’s aimed at students who hold the competencies' delivered in EEHA.
This course is suitable for EEHA Electricians who have achieved Certificate IV in Hazardous areas -Electrical (UEE42610) and would like to upgrade their qualification to the current package (UEE42611).Those who have completed a Statement of Attainment (SoA) under the old package.
This course covers current updated information that is introduced in the new standard AS/NZS 60079 that are published. It includes the following:
Students who have successfully completed the units of competency in the course will be issued with an updated qualification.
This course is suitable for electrical and general personnel working in / exposed to hazardous areas. This includes Instrument sales engineers who sells Ex rated instruments, Engineers who would like to obtain general knowledge of explosive protection techniques, HSE staff, non-electrical trade personnel and managers.
This course covers the legislative requirements for hazardous area and provides an overview of the relevant Australian standards. Also included is an introduction to general principles of explosion proof techniques, various explosion protected equipment and explanations on how to read hazardous area classification drawings and interpret equipment markings under different schemes i.e.
This course will build up confidence and awareness to general personnel in hazardous areas where they can inadvertently introduce ignition sources to explosive environments. It would also address many common confusions that cause increased risk for workers in hazardous areas and help administrators. Engineers who attend this course would obtain general knowledge on electrical design in the hazardous areas.
