ABOUT THE COURSE
Our Electrical Equipment In Hazardous Areas - EEHA Training Course is a natural progression for Electricians wanting to upskill and work in the Oil and Gas Manufacturing Industry. EEHA gives you a statement of attainment (this is not a full qualification) and enables a person to work in Hazardous areas. If you are after a full qualification please check Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas.
This EEHA Training course gives an understanding of Installation Testing and Commissioning of Electrical and Instrumentation Equipment such as :
- Light fittings
- Gas Monitors
- Gas Detectors
- Flow and Temperature transmitters rated for Hazardous Environment
All Hazardous area Techniques will be taught and practiced for installation and testing of Exd, Extd, Exp, Exe, Exi, Exm, Exo, Exq and so on.
This EEHA Training provides competencies to :
- supervise selection, installation, commissioning maintenance and testing of explosion-protected equipment and systems for control and monitoring of plant and processes
- work with explosion protection techniques with elections in how they apply to coal mining, gas and dust atmospheres.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" I have just recently completed my cert IV EEHA training with Kevin and Ausinet and found the entire experience was a positive one. The teaching methods and course flexibility meant i was able to obtain my certification without having to take any time off work and still get through the theory at my own pace. The pricing of the course was extremely good and i later found that the course is supported through the trade union jetco fund which was an added bonus. I will be using Ausinet in the future for additional training for sure." VINNY S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" A bit like the HA courses that have rapidly became common place in the gas industry today so to is the need & focus now to up skill within the instrumentation field. This is where Kevin excels and sits apart from other training providers, with his informative, patient and thorough knowledge that comes from his years of experience in the field and a course structure that comes from listening to what people want from their training provider, i am happy to recommend Ausinet and Kevin for both the training i have undertaken and working alongside him in the field, great effort" ALAN H.

You can check this article on our blog https://www.ausinet.com.au/what-is-the-difference-between-eeha-and-certificate-iv-hazardous-areas/ Some Human Resources departments are fine with an EEHA certificate (Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas) only but some ask for a full Certificate. It is always better to get a full Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas as it is a higher qualification and only takes one more day to complete compared to the EEHA course. EEHA is a skill set that is part of Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas. Having Certificate IV will also enable you to work in Supervisory positions.
Recruiters might favour applicants with a Cert IV HA compared to EEHA. If they get several similar profiles, this would be what sets you out from the others and give you more chances to get the job compared to someone who just has an EEHA Certificate.
