Arc Flash & Low Voltage Safety - Train The Trainer program
Available for onsite training GET A QUOTE

Many organizations with high turnover or simple systems will benefit from providing a basic Arc Flash training course to their non-electrical employees. This three day Train the Trainer program will provide these companies with a 4 hour course that will certify their employees to the requirements of CSA Z462-18 or NFPA 70E-2015. Course candidates must be electrically qualified and Arc Flash certified. Other restrictions also apply.

Candidates will receive a detailed understanding of the critical clauses in the standards, how to provide an effective presentation and how to ensure their students are qualified to perform their required tasks.

Who should attend: Certified Electrical Professionals who wish to administer Electrical Safety and Arc Flash Awareness under their own organizations roof.
