Virtual Instructor Led NFPA 70E High Voltage Qualified Training
This two-day virtual instructor led course will cover both NFPA 70E Low Voltage and High Voltage Qualified Training.
The low voltage qualified course focuses on electrical safety training for employees who work on 600V and below. This NFPA 70E based course goes beyond the theoretical to give attendees a complete understanding of the rules and regulations relating to electrical and arc flash safety and how to apply them in real-world situations.
In the high voltage training, attendees learn what it means to be HV qualified and what electrical tasks may only be performed by a qualified person. Working on or above 600V to 69 kV industrial high voltage distribution systems requires qualification.
The virtual NFPA 70E Low Voltage Qualified course will cover the following:
- Practical compliance with NFPA 70E electrical safety in the workplace
- How to do table-based hazard assessments using NFPA 70E
- How to choose Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) based on the NFPA 70E tables
- Differences between the NEC, NESC, NFPA 70E and OSHA standards
- PPE do’s and don’ts for workers exposed to shock and electric arc hazards
- Standards to use in clothing and PPE selection
- Explanations of arc ratings ATPV and EBT, and how they are applied
- The ins and outs of flame resistant (FR), arc-rated (AR) clothing and other shock and arc PPE
The virtual High Voltage Qualified course will cover the following:
- Regulations related to being HV Qualified and working safely, including OSHA 1910.269
- Safe practices working on or near energized equipment
- Live line work, tools and equipment
- Mobile equipment and electrical hazards
- De-energized testing
- Creating a safe work zone (tape in/tape out)
- Public safety (limited approach) boundaries
- Minimum approach distance
- When is it live-line work
- What tasks do not require a live-line permit
- Testing and verifying equipment is de-energized
- Why you must ground
- Field testing requirements
- Demonstrate your proficiency of HV skills for our engineer/lineman
