Hazardous Area Electrical Competency Courses Available In Melbourne At Extend Training

For workers in certain industries, hazardous area electrical competency courses are a must. Those who work around electrical equipment in environments where there is potential for explosions must be able to demonstrate competency working in such an area. In most cases, workers are legally required to comply with AS/NZS 3000 – The Wiring Rules. For hazardous areas, AS/NZS 60079.14 is required and all workers must demonstrate competency. That is where Extend Training comes in. The company provides nationally recognised training for electricians, engineers, and others who may work in these types of hazardous environments.

Competency Courses in Melbourne At Extend Training

Extend Training offers a variety of competency courses, including Hazardous Area Awareness and EEHA Installation, Maintenance, and Inspection. There are also courses in Hazardous Area Classification and Electrical Design for Hazardous Areas. Courses range from the one-day Hazardous Area Awareness to three- and five-day training for others. Extend can deliver the training at your work site with a minimum number of participants. For the Hazardous Area Awareness course for example, a minimum of eight persons are needed to have the company’s trainers come to your job site and deliver the training. The course is an introductory level hazardous areas program. Participants learn terminology and high-level requirements and standards for working in facilities with hazardous areas.

Why Take A Competency Course At Extend Training

Many individuals can benefit from taking a competency course in Melbourne from Extend Training. Those looking to break into the oil or gas industry, for example, can enhance their marketability by demonstrating competency in working in hazardous areas. EEHA training at Extend is a great way to broaden one’s skill set and increase the likelihood of becoming employed. To work at many oil and gas companies in Australia, an employee must have EEHA competencies.

Those who work in hazardous areas already must demonstrate competency to work with hazardous area equipment. Law in many cases requires it. There are certain rules for electrical installations – AS/NZS 3000 – and hazardous area installations – AS/NZS 60079.14 – that are a pre-requisite for anyone who wants to work for certain oil and gas companies. Training at Extend is a great way to demonstrate your competency.
