NFPA 70E manual






Our classes meet or exceed the OSHA and NFPA requirements. 
We are happy to customize a course to suit your needs.
NFPA 70E 2015 Training
We offer an 8hr in depth training of the 70E along with a 4 hr refresher course. For first timers we recommend the 8hr class. OSHA and the 70E require annual refresher classes and the 4 hr meets this requirement to stay compliant. Both classes focus on shock, arc and blast hazards including teaching methods of energy mitigation and the use of safe PPE. These classes are an absolute must for all workers exposed to 50 volts or more.

All of our courses start with a review of electrical safety and the dangers of shock and arc blast.

How to Safely use your Meter (4 hour class)
Using an electrical meter safely is a fundamental of being an electrician. The 70E requires that any person working within the limited approach boundary of exposed energized electrical conductors operating at 50 volts or more shall at a minimum be able to distinguish exposed energized parts from other equipment and also have the skills and techniques necessary to determine the nominal voltage of these exposed energized parts.

Don't let taking voltage readings scare you. In this class we go over volts, amps, ohms and watts. Once the student understands each of these and their relationships using Ohms and Watts Laws he is on a good starting path of troubleshooting.

This class will give you the knowledge and confidence to use your meter safely and correctly. Bring your meter to class and let us teach you how to safely inspect it and use it. If you are working on exposed and energized parts this class is a must.
Industrial Electricity Part I
This is an 8 hour class that is designed for a new maintenance worker who needs help with getting started in electrical troubleshooting and repair. A review of volts, amps, resistance along with Ohms and Watts Laws. It also covers an introduction to AC and DC circuits, batteries and resistors in series and parallel.. Included in this class will be an introduction to typical industrial electrical distribution systems, a review of a typical one-line, and how breakers and fuses work and why we have them.
Industrial Electricity Part II
In this 8 hour class starts with a clear teaching on NO and NC contacts and using your meter to establish which are NO and NC. Then we move onto typical input devices such as switches, push buttons, limit switches, prox switches, etc. We look at how they are made, and how to troubleshoot them. The class covers typical output devices such as relays, lights, contactors, timers, solenoids, heating elements. Finally simple circuits are wired showing switches, relays, contactors and lights.
Industrial Electricity Part III
In this 4 hour class we cover the basics of a typical factory or industrial plant electrical distribution system. We look at how transformers work, the role of circuit breakers and fuses, power distribution panels, Motor Control Centers etc. Typical one-line prints are studied and basic troubleshooting steps are discussed for power failures. Electrical print reading is covered in this class, with emphasis on YOUR facilities prints.
Industrial Electricity Part IV
In this 4 hour class we cover the basics of AC and DC motors. How they work, how to troubleshoot them, and how to keep them in tip top condition.
