Pair workplace protocols and creative initiative to methodically design and produce various projects
Our Hazardous Area Design, Plan and Classification Training course is intended for electrical workers, engineers and technicians involved with installing, maintaining electrical equipment in hazardous areas and area classification.
Our course has been designed to cover hazardous area classification procedures and techniques for Gas and Combustible Dust installations. Students will be taught the correct method of analysing and classifying the hazardous area and will be given in depth knowledge on how to assess flammable material properties and ignition characteristics.
We prefer students to have previously completed Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas prior to attending the Design, Plan and Classify course; however, this is not mandatory.
Our design course delivers up to date industry relevant training and focuses on the proper selection and installation of equipment to be used safely in a hazardous environment. The topics include:
→ Hazardous Area Management.
→ HA Design Principles and Objectives.
→ Explosion Protection Techniques.
→ Classification Principles and Techniques.
→ Planning a Hazardous Area.
→ Engineering calculation such as MDP, IS Parameters etc.
→ Equipment selection in a Hazardous Area.
→ Design of Pressurisation and Ventilation Systems.
→ Hazardous Area Earthing requirements.
This is a 5 day course deliverd in a face-to-face environment.
Currently Training at our Mackay, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth training facilities.
Training is completed face to face.
24hr access to Volt Edge support network.
