Learning Objectives

  • Learn to easily determine equipment requirements for hazardous locations
  • Understand recommended protection methods for hazardous area installations
  • Become familiar with standardized area classifications
  • Acquire working knowledge for conducting installations to the North American Zone and Division system based on area classifications
  • Gain an understanding of hazardous area classifications and increase understanding of wiring methods and sealing in combustible gas, dust and fibre areas
  • Develop knowledge of IECEx, ATEX, North American and other certification schemes
  • Understand certification requirements for various types of equipment

Course Overview

Electrical installations in hazardous locations require a rigorous attention to detail. It is essential that equipment used in these locations be designed to the applicable standards and tested prior to installation to help ensure it does not initiate an explosion.

Even with international standards slowly converging to include a wider range of acceptable hazardous location installation methods approved by national regulatory agencies, electrical installations can still vary based on North American or international directives. With different approaches to standardization and testing of equipment for hazardous areas it is important to fully understand the requirements of your jurisdiction.

This two-day course will help you understand requirements for designing, installing and maintaining electrical equipment in hazardous areas, providing a review of classifications based on division, zone, and dust, gas and fibre areas. You’ll examine installation requirements based on applicable codes, standards and best practices. You’ll understand the differences between the CEC and NEC Codes with respect to Division and Zone classifications, hazardous location product markings, and equipment construction & performance requirements. You’ll also learn to evaluate prospective installations to determine appropriate wiring methods and equipment selection.
