Course Overview

This course provides participants with an insight into the hazards involved in using electrical equipment in potentially explosive surroundings. This highly beneficial training course is designed to provide you with the skills to understand how electrical systems are installed, maintained and operated in industrial process plants in heavy industries, and why it is essential to ensure that measures are taken to ensure the safety of any equipment specifically in hazardous areas.

Why is this “Installation, Maintenance and Safety of Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas” course so essential especially to those in the electrical industry? Explosion-proof system installations can be expensive to design, install and operate, but even more expensive to manage if things go wrong.

Maintaining solid and fool-proof standards can significantly reduce the latter costs, while also maintaining the safety of the facility and its inhabitants. This course explains the terminology associated with the installation and maintenance of equipment in hazardous areas, area classification, selection of explosion-protected electrical apparatus, and describing how protection is achieved and maintained in line with international requirements.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the knowledge to understand the importance of hazardous areas, learn the basics of instrumentation and control systems in a plant or facility and the importance that instrumentation holds in the control of the safe and reliable operation of electrical facilities.
