ABOUT THE COURSE
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE
EEHA Refresher for Hazardous Area is prepared for licenced Australian electricians who are required to attend a refresher program for electrical equipment in hazardous areas (EEHA) to refresh their skills and knowledge to match current industry standards on competencies that they have already gained.
The EEHA refresher program is intended to bring current Australian licenced electricians who have been previously trained in hazardous areas up to date on any changes to hazardous area standards and legislation.
Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Area Refresher (EEHA -Ref) is a 3-day intensive course offered to license electricians who hold an EEHA full certificate or for people who intend to refresh their skills to the current standards. The course consists of 2 – days of theory and 1 – day of practical. During this refresher training, you will be using the latest standards and gaining hands-on practical knowledge from our trainers with over 20 years of experience.
You will cover knowledge from AS 60079 series for various explosion techniques like Ex d, Ext, Ex e, Exp, Ex m and Ex I in Gaseous and Dust atmospheres. At the end of the theory assessments, you will have sound knowledge of the Hazardous area classifications, purpose, installation, maintenance aspects of the equipment and explosion techniques.
Practical should be pre-booked with our support team (email@example.com) which can be done after completing your theory assessments. A full-day intensive practical comprises the following tasks:
– Installation of barrier glands based on the type of cables, selecting appropriate glands for given cables.
– Inspecting different equipment in a HA site located in the workshop.
– Planning and preparing HA documents.

Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.
Recognition of prior learning, also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.
This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.
The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit.

* This is a competency-based training duration is subjective and varies with an individual’s experience, intellect and tenacity.
Can I get RPL for EEHA Refresher if I have been working in the field for a long time?
It is easier to do the refresher course. We understand that you are experienced and competent but doing RPL requires you to submit lots of evidence. The trainer then goes through the evidence and will ask you for any shortcomings. This process could take a month and the cost of RPL is more than the cost of the refresher course. The refresher can be done online.
