Electrical training module

NCCER announces the 2009 release of the Contren Learning Series Managing Electrical Hazards module.

03/30/2009


Developed to help organizations respond to the 2009 edition of national consensus standard, NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, this new NCCER module introduces trainees and their supervisors to electrical hazards in the workplace and how to avoid these hazards. Topics also include how to select specialized personal protective equipment for electrical work, how to analyze and document shock and arc flash hazards, and how to plan and conduct work around them.

NCCER worked with subject matter experts representing the electrical industry and academia across the country to introduce relevant industry material into the curriculum.

Managing Electrical Hazards also offers technical hints and tips from the electrical industry, presenting real-life scenarios similar to those one might encounter on the job site. Additional features include a list of trade terms and a module trade term quiz.

Students successfully completing Managing Electrical Hazards through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor will earn industry-recognized credentials through NCCER's National Registry.

NCCER develops the Contren Learning Series curriculum in partnership with leading textbook publisher, Pearson.
