Classes include preparation for code exams, discussions on electrical safety, OSHA requirements and hands on participation to enhance maintenance skills.
Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers, January 3-4, 2007
This two-day electrical safety program focuses on the practical application of the OSHA regulations & the NFPA 70E, rather than just explaining them. It is designed to meet the mandated OSHA electrical safety training requirements for qualified electrical workers [Fed/OSHA 1910.331-.335 (Electrical Safety Work Practices)]. Hazards of electricity, NFPA 70E (2004 edition), Electrical Hazard Analysis & PPE Assessments, Hot-Work Permits & Safety Electrical One-Line Diagrams (SEOLD) are all taught from the standpoint of field experience. Hands-on training sessions reinforce safety-critical areas of the course, such as testing for the absence of voltage, inspection and proper use of electrical PPE and safe operation of circuit breakers and switches. Attendees also receive a free copy of the NFPA 70E. Class fee is $680.00 per person.
Electrical Safety for Utilities, January 5, 2007
This 8-hour program is conducted at the conclusion of our Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers program and continues with the requirements for OSHA 29CFR1910.269, “Electrical Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution”. Not only are utilities covered by this regulation, but also industrial establishments that have medium and high voltage distribution systems, such as substations, at their site. Hazards faced by employees performing construction or maintenance work on electric power generation, transmission and distribution installations pose a significant risk of injury or death to those employees. Over a 45-year working lifetime, more than 14 of every 1,000 line workers will die from hazards posed by their work. Because line workers are allowed to work very close to electric power lines and equipment, they face a high risk of electrocution. It is important that they have specialized training. Initial, one-time instruction is not sufficient to ensure that employees will use safe work practices all of the time. This specialized program provides the training needed to reinforce the need for safe work practices by linemen and others involved with high-voltage power systems. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Electrical Safety for Managers, January 8, 2007
This one-day course answers the questions and needs of supervisors, managers and engineers who are responsible for or supervise electrical workers. Learn what your exposure is in the event of an accident; what is required of you and how to protect your company and your workers. This program offers solutions to those who are concerned about what is needed to show OSHA "Good Faith Effort", limit fines and liability, and ensure a safe work site. Each attendee will receive a copy of "The Electrical Safety Program Book" by Ken Mastrullo and Ray Jones, which is used as the course text. This course is offered in tandem with our High and Low Voltage Electrical Safety course to provide maximum benefit and meet OSHA-mandated safety training requirements. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Equipotential Grounding, January 9, 2007
This 8-hour program provides an in-depth discussion of the equipotential grounding requirements, procedures and methods for both overhead and underground installations. Normally energized lines and equipment that have been deenergized will sometimes permit employees to become accidentally energized. Grounding lines and equipment are used to protect employees from injury should such reenergizing occur, as well as protect against induced voltages and static charges on a line. Grounding practices that do not provide an equipotential zone in which an employee is safeguarded from voltage differences do not provide complete protection. This course provides the training needed to ensure employees are adequately protected. Class fee is $400.00 per person.
Electrical Safety Refresher Training, January 10, 2007
This 8-hour electrical safety refresher course is designed for personnel who have already completed the OSHA-mandated electrical safety training (such as our Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers course). Attendees will benefit from examples and videos designed to reacquaint them with electrical hazards and the need for using PPE. Arc Flash Labels, shock and arc flash approach boundaries and choosing Personal Protective Equipment are covered as well as Energized Electrical Work Permits and placing equipment in an Electrically-Safe Work Condition. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Substation Maintenance, Part 1, January 15-19, 2007
Substation Maintenance Level 1 is a four-and-a-half day course for those who test or maintain equipment such as transformers, circuit breakers, protective relays or battery systems. Hands-on sessions using the latest test equipment from Doble, Vanguard, Megger and others allow time to really learn how to inspect, test and work on these critical components. Attendees receive a copy of NETA's latest maintenance and/or acceptance testing specifications. Class fee is $1,530.00 per person.
Understanding the NFPA 70E, January 22-23, 2007
The NFPA 70E is one of the most important standards a company can have, but if no one understands it, it won't help keep your personnel safe. This two-day program will enable you to understand how to implement the 70E and receive the most benefit from it. Changes, TIA's and using Tables 130.7 are covered in detail. Each attendee will also receive a copy of the NFPA 70E for future reference. OSHA currently uses the 70E in court to justify citations and fines - shouldn't you know what they know? Class fee is $680.00 per person.
This program is taught by James R. White, the NETA Alternate Representative on the NFPA 70E Committee.
Substation Maintenance Part 2, January 22-26, 2007
Substation Maintenance Level 2 is a four-and-a-half day course for those who have successfully completed Substation Maintenance Level 1. Attendees receive a copy of NETA's latest maintenance and/or acceptance testing specifications. Class fee is $1,530.00 per person.
National Electric Code: 2005, January 24-26, 2007
This three-day program is an intensive Journeyman Code Exam prep course designed to familiarize attendees with the 2005 NEC and example tests. Learn your weaknesses and compensate for them before you take the exam. This course covers the ICC block exams used in all jurisdictions including the State of Texas. It is also great for anyone wanting to know how to use the Code effectively. Class fee is $1099.00 per person.
