EEHA - electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas - DARWIN*
Gap training for Electricians
ABOUT THE COURSE
Our EEHA Electrical Equipment In Hazardous Areas 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.
- select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain stand-alone renewable energy equipment and systems (ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’)
On completion of this EEHA course, you will receive a Nationally recognised qualification.
Future Pathways include UEE44011 Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation or UEE50211 Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation.
There is no funding currently available for this course.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" 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.
