HA Classification

Who is this course for:

This course is for engineers involved in the classification of hazardous areas – the determination of where in a facility the hazardous zones exist, and the properties of the zones identified.  It is most suited to chemical/process and electrical engineers (who most frequently perform the classification task) but is open to any degree-qualified engineer in the electrical, mechanical and process disciplines.

Entry Requirements:

Candidates for this course must hold an engineering degree in an electrical, mechanical or process discipline.

Duration and delivery:

The course is 3-days duration.  We can run a program on site for 6 or more people.

The course is also available online, via a combination of instructor led and self-paced sessions. Click here for more details.

AS/NZS 4761.1:2018 Competencies:

Clause No. Unit Title
2.15 Classify Areas where flammable gas or vapour hazards may arise
2.16 Classify Areas where a combustible dust hazard may arise

What happened to the UEE Units of Competency?

With the introduction of the new Electrotechnology Training Package Release 2 in October 2020, the older UEE units of competency for classification in hazardous areas have been deleted and have not been replaced with any equivalent units of competency. Extend Training, in partnership with Response Consulting, will now be offering hazardous area classification training based on AS/NZS 4761.1:2018 “Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas (EEHA)”. Participants receive a Certificate of Training and Assessment upon successful completion of the course.
