Extend Training Offers HA Competency Based Courses For Those Working With Specialised Equipment

If you work or are planning to work in an industry where you will operate in a facility that has hazardous areas, you are going to need to demonstrate competency in working with specialised machinery. Extend Training offers quality, nationally recognised HA training throughout Australia. Workers like those in the oil and gas industry benefit greatly from the training offered by Extend, which has highly trained instructors who have a wealth of industry experience.

Why Take An HA Training Course At Extend

In industries like oil and gas, there are numerous hazardous areas where electrical machinery is close to flammable products. The electrical equipment in these setting must be specially designed so that it will not spark or create ignition of a flame. That could cause an explosion, which could create a disastrous situation. This is why training is needed.

People working with this specialised equipment must demonstrate competency in doing so. They have to know how the equipment works so that they can install and maintain it correctly. This keeps the machinery safe and prevents incidents from occurring. Extend offers competency based courses for workers to display their proficiency. The courses are great for someone working in the electrical industry who wants to broaden their skills and are also great for those who want to get into the oil and gas industry.

Courses Offered

You can choose from a variety of courses at Extend Training. All are designed so that participants can achieve HA competency. All personnel, electrical and non-electrical, who work in hazardous areas can benefit from Hazard Area Awareness. It is a one-day course that is designed as an introduction to hazardous areas for plant operations and maintenance personnel. Participants learn some of the basic terminology, requirements, and legislation that affects their performance in a hazardous area. The course also covers the requirements for working safely in facilities that have hazardous areas.

Extend also offers three- and five-day competency courses that are more advanced and specific. EEHA Installation, Maintenance, and Inspection is designed for electrical workers who will install, maintain, and inspect electrical equipment in hazardous areas. Hazardous Area Classification is a course designed for managers and engineers. All of the courses are designed to help workers succeed in hazardous environments.
