MYTH 1: EEHA Training is mandatory when conducting any EEHA electrical work.

False. The requirement is about demonstrating the competence to safely complete your work. Does this mean you have to attend training in order to receive this competence? No, not necessarily.

It’s true that in Australia state law requires electrical installations that comply with the AS/NZS 3000-The Wiring Rules. Therefore, if you are working on any project that requires AS/NZS 3000 then you’ll like need to complete EEHA training to do so. However, there are some exceptions.

Let’s explore the specifics:

Section 7.7 of the Wiring Rules discusses installations in hazardous areas and describes a need for them to comply with AS/NZS 60079.14

Clause 4.4 states the persons working with explosion-protected equipment (EEHA) in hazardous areas must be competent to do their work.

Clause 4.4 nominates undertaking training and assessment to the EEHA Competency Standard, AS/NZS 4761.1 as a way to demonstrate competency.

So while it is not necessarily required to undertake training in accordance with the EEHA Competency Standard AS/NZS 4761.1, it is highly recommended to simplify this (oftentimes) not so simple process.
