This course is designed for electrical workers‚ technicians, and engineers involved with installing and maintaining electrical equipment in hazardous areas.
It is designed to enable electrical workers and technicians to upgrade their existing, or superseded units of competency previously attained under an Installation and Maintenance of Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas course.
The Upgrade includes a refresher component and new units. It’s a requirement to have the old units to complete the upgrade course.
$1,650 GST Exempt
Payment: Please note that until payment is received, your booking is not fully secured.
The Installation and Maintenance of Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas Upgrade course covers the following topics in detail:
• Legal requirements and Australian Standards
• Equipment installation, breakdown and maintenance requirements
• Testing procedures
• Inspection procedures
• Record keeping
• Explosion-protection techniques, including:
• Flameproof (Ex d)
• Increased Safety (Ex e)
• Intrinsic Safety (Ex i)
• Dust protection by enclosure (Ex tD)
Practical inspection and testing activities are conducted on training boards that have been developed in conjunction with NHP Electrical Engineering Products, a leading supplier of electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres.
This training requires a Unique Student Identifier (USI). You can still complete the training without a USI, though Competency Training is unable to provide you with a nationally recognised certificate until you provide us with your USI. To apply for a free USI visit the USI website or contact our facility.

An EEHA I&M Refresher course is also available. In accordance with the AS/NZS 60079.14 requirement for continuing education, Competency Training recommends that this hazardous area training course is refreshed every 2-3 years.
This course provides a Licensed Electrician with the necessary prerequisites to attend Competency Training’s Hazardous Areas Classification and Design Course and attain all units of competency.
On successful attainment of the course units, participants who hold a UEE30820 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician (or unrestricted electrical licence) can enrol in the UEE42620 Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas – Electrical with Competency Training, and complete the remaining four core units by Recognition of Prior Learning. Participants are provided with a Recognition of Prior Learning Kit, to be completed in their own time, with the assistance of our knowledgeable trainers and assessors.
