About the course
This course covers electrical installations in petroleum industry according to NEC regulations. It covers classification of hazardous atmospheres, prevention of external ignition and explosion, equipment for hazardous areas (switchgears, lighting fixtures & motors and generators), wiring methods and materials, testing and inspection, earthling and bonding in hazardous areas, monitoring and protective equipment
Electrical installation teaches the candidates about the proper use, maintenance, inspection and installation of electrical equipment. Safety is usually a key feature to electrical installation courses. This includes instructions for handling electrical circuits, hazard analysis and interpretation and unsafe working conditions. The specific dangers of electrical blast, short circuits, ground faults, lifting injuries, fire spread, electrocution and overloads are explained. Courses might also examine maintenance procedures, related work permits, personal protective equipment and locking and tagging devices.
This course teaches the participants how to select, identify and become comfortable with power tools used in installation and electrical measuring. The important issue of health and safety in the workplace will also be addressed. You'll learn wiring techniques, and study the regulatory framework that applies to the inspection and testing of various types of installation. You will learn how to comply with building regulations and how to ensure that health and safety guidelines are met at all times. When your course is complete, you'll have the knowledge you need to more sharpen your skills and experience.
By the end of this course the participant will be able to:
- Classify hazardous atmospheres.
- Understand procedures of prevention of external ignition and explosion.
- Be familiar with equipment for hazardous areas
