COURSE DESCRIPTION

Used by more NFPA 70E committee members, this 8 hour training will provide the participant with a thorough knowledge of the dangers and recommended safe behaviors for those who work daily around electrical hazards. This course goes beyond the theoretical to give attendees a complete understanding of regulations regarding electrical and arc flash safety and how to apply them in real-world situations. The course also details differences contained in the 2015 NFPA 70E standard from the 2012 version. Our arc flash training is the most complete in the industry without spending hours reading through OSHA and NFPA 70E regulations. We digest the information critical to the electrical worker and safety professional and put it in a concept-based, adult-learner friendly format that makes it easy to understand, remember and apply.
