Question and Answers

Self-Administered Test:Terms, Definitions, Interpretations and Concepts; Case Study

Electrical and non-electrical equipment can pose an ignition source when used in hazardous locations. This risk can happen in abnormal operating conditions of the equipment or even in normal working conditions. This one-day course provides an overview of protection approaches used in product design, as well as details about some specific protection methods for electrical and non-electrical equipment for use in gas-explosive atmospheres.

The four general protection approaches are covered: containing an internal explosion; isolating the ignition source from the explosive atmosphere; avoiding the presence of the ignition source; and limiting the energy of the ignition source. Specific protection techniques used for each approach are then examined in detail. Emphasis is on learning the fundamentals, in order to promote compliance with safety requirements, given the hazardous nature of the environment.

This is a foundation course that covers protection techniques for gas- explosive environments.It will be of value to persons with a variety of backgrounds who work with equipment in potentially hazardous gas-explosive environments.

Instructor-led training in a virtual classroom. This means the course is Live Online. Participants will learn through online teaching. Lectures, case studies, group exercises, discussions, problem solving, examples with explanation, assignments and/or quizzes happen in the virtual classroom training. Delivery provides a blend of theoretical knowledge and activities that involve real-life examples of theory at work in the hazardous location (HazLoc) industry. Case studies will be used to encourage application-oriented thinking. Participants need to connect to the class from any internet accessible location. Each module is delivered live using webinar technology, creating a virtual classroom learning environment. Live sessions provide you with direct access to the trainer so you can ask questions, understand complex concepts and share ideas with peers. Webcam and microphone are REQUIRED to interact with the instructor and/or other participants.

The course content and structure are designed by the domain experts from TÜV SÜD.

With immense experience and knowledge in the relevant standards, our team of product specialists and technical experts at TÜV SÜD, developed the course content based on current business landscape and market requirements.

A self-administered test that tests theoretical knowledge as well as the ability to apply it to case scenarios.

Having access to Standards and codes is helpful but not mandatory.
