This online course covers the explosion-protection aspects of designing electrical systems and installations for hazardous areas. This course requires the ability to identify hazardous area zones from
- Classification procedures to AS/NZS 60079.10.1,
- Hazardous area equipment design and selection according to AS/NZS 60079.14,
- Intrinsically safe circuit design,
- Application of the AS/NZS 60079 suite of standards.
Participants will gather and analyse data relative to explosion hazards, determine the extent of risk and establish and document zones. Assessment tasks are hands on, real world projects that require the establishment of design briefs and specifications for economical and effective design solutions
There are 3 days of online instruction, live with your trainer. Participants are then required to complete assessments in a self-paced mode. Phone/email support will be provided to complete assignments.
Participants typically undertake this course to obtain accreditation required to perform work that meets requirements of AS/NZS 60079.14 and AS/NZS 60079.17.
The content of the course is mapped to the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS /NZS 4761 .1 Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas.
