NFPA 70E Electrical Safety and Arc Flash Training w/ CertificationElectrical Training, live electrical training, safety training

This Electrical Safety and Arc Flash training workshop is based on NFPA 70E®, OSHA and industry best practices and is designed to save lives, prevent disabling injuries, and prevent damage to plants, building and equipment. Students attending this course will
gain an immense respect for the power of electricity. They will learn about personal safety for working on or around electrical systems and equipment, how to use proper materials and procedures for doing electrical work and the potential consequences for themselves or others if they don’t.

Safety Qualified™ Electrical Worker Certification

Using a live, finger safe (24v) system, students are provided with different scenarios where they must use all their skills and resources to create an electrically safe work Hands On Electrical Safety Training and Certificationcondition. Students must perform risk assessment, do job planning, interpret safety data, choose the proper PPE and tools, set boundaries, lockout, and verify a system to zero energy status.
