Ensure Your Employees Are Prepared With Competency Based Training Courses In Melbourne Offered By Extend Training

Those working in environments that are potentially explosive need to be properly trained so that they are competent. In the oil and gas industries, there are multiple occasions where accidents can happen due to the number of flammable products around. Electrical equipment in these areas is specially made to ensure that it does not spark. Those working with these machines need to understand how they work so they may correctly design, install, and maintain them. Competency based training offered by Extend Training can prepare new workers and help existing workers sharpen their skills and knowledge.

Choose From Several Different Competency Based Training Courses At Extend

Extend offers training across the nation, and on an international basis as well. There is a wide variety of competency based courses from which to choose including Hazardous Area Awareness, an introductory level course. It provides an overview for both electrical and non-electrical personnel. Those taking this competency based training course will learn the requirements for working safely in environments that have hazardous areas.

Electrical and instrumentation workers and engineers can choose EEHA Installation, Maintenance, and Inspection. This course covers the fundamentals of hazardous areas as well as the installation, maintenance, and inspection of electrical equipment that is placed in hazardous areas. Hazardous Area Classification is another of the competency based training courses in Melbourne offered by Extend. It is a three-day face to face course designed for engineers and technical officers involved in the classification of hazardous area facilities.

Who Needs Extend Training?

Workers who may be looking to get into the oil or gas industry can enhance their profile by taking EEHA (Hazardous Area Electrical Training). The course provides an easy way to broaden one’s skill set and to make a person more marketable in today’s competitive workplace. Workers already employed in those industries must demonstrate competency in working with hazardous area equipment. Electrical installations must comply with AS/NZS 3000 – the Wiring Rules and hazardous area installations must comply with AS/NZS 60079.14. By training with Extend, workers can easily display their competency.
