There is a difference between Electrical Safety Practical Skills training and employer Electrical Qualification level training.
Practical Skills Training is used by employers and employees to benchmark their understanding of electrical safe work practices and their relationship to the overall electrical program. It is used to prepare the worker for Qualification Training and testing.
Qualification Training and testing builds upon Certification Training and adds to it installation specific hands-on job task performance tests.
NTT can facilitate both kinds of training. Please note that Qualification Training and testing requires the client to provide their equipment for training purposes in order to meet the specific requirements of NFPA 70E-2012.
Electrical Practical Skills Training: Workers have classroom knowledge and have practiced the skills needed to be ready for employer Electrical Qualification.
- Hands-on Electrical Safety Practical Skills
- Low Voltage
- Medium Voltage
Supervisor Certification Training: Supervisors have completed both the Electrical Practical Skills Training and also received training on legal, compliance, and technical aspects of electrical program development.
- Assessor Training
- Job Task Analysis and Procedure Development
Qualification training: requires custom development and consulting
- Custom Qualification Procedures
- Custom hands-on Qualification training and Student Demonstration
Learning Objectives for Qualified Person training include the ability to demonstrate:
- The skills and techniques necessary to distinguish exposed energized parts from other parts of electrical equipment.
- The skills and techniques necessary to determine the nominal voltage of exposed live parts.
- Approach distances and the corresponding voltages to which the Qualified Person will be exposed.
- The decision-making process necessary to determine the degree and extent of the hazard AND the personal protective equipment and job planning necessary to perform the task safely.
