Course Overview

Many employers are implementing arc flash PPE for electrical personnel even though there is no European standard. This one day course covers the arc flash risk assessment described in IEEE 1584, as well as examples of incident energy and flash protection boundary calculations. Methods used to calculate fault energy at points on the system are also examined.

Who should attend?

Electrical engineers/technicians responsible for the operation and maintenance of electrical systems.

Course Aims

To provide information and examples that will assist participants in their understanding of the implications of arc flash accidents and the steps to be taken to control risk. This study will include the parameters used in the calculations and how they are obtained.


Delegates who successfully complete the course and the theoretical assessment will receive a Faraday Training Group competence certificate. Delegates who fail or do not wish to undertake the competence assessment will receive a Faraday Training Group attendance certificate.
