Hazardous Area Classification

$2,475.00 +GST

The classification of areas where an explosive atmosphere might arise is required to permit the proper selection and installation of equipment for use in such hazardous areas. Explosive atmospheres result from the presence of flammable gases, vapours and dusts. The aim of this 3-day course is to develop the competencies required to perform a Hazardous Area Classification based on the requirements of AS/ NZS 60079.10.1:2009 and AS/ NZS 60079.10.2:2016 with supplementary information supported from EI15 4th Edition and IEC 60079.10.1:2015.

This course awards US 17069 and meets the competencies of AS/ NZS 4761.1. It has strict pre-requisites that must be met before your registration on the course is confirmed. This is to ensure your level of understanding is adequate to meet the preconditions for assessment to AS/ NZS 4761.1 2018 Competencies for Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas. Candidates seeking assessment for the unit standard “Classify Hazardous Areas” (US 17069) are required to have a relevant engineering or scientific discipline qualification at NZQF level 7 (i.e. Bachelor Degree or equivalent).
