AS3800 Overhaul & Repair Refresher Training Course

Course Details

The AS3800 Overhaul refresher course is for those working in overhaul and repair workshops (including those with electrical, mechanical trades). The course covers the skills and knowledge required to work on explosion-protected equipment and systems for the control and monitoring of plant and processes in hazardous areas for the coal, gas and dust industries.

In accordance with the AS/NZS 3800, Verico Training Services recommends that the overhaul/repair competencies are refreshed every 2-3 years.

The units within this course meet the competency requirements of AS/NZS 3800-2012 Electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres - Repair and overhaul. This means that the course meets the requirements outlined in Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4761.1 Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas (EEHA) Part 1: Competency Standards for Overhaul and repair of explosion-protected equipment.
