I am in the process of developing an electrical safety program, and in the process completeing arc flash reviews in our different facilities. Part of the process is to develope a training program that all my different facilities can use to qualify a worker. I need to put this system together so everyone has a common training method and approach. My question is has anyone used an online training system to qualify a worker.

Thanks

I developed training materials, had the class accredited by the State as CEU's for journeymen, and have taught this 8 hour class at several facilties for the past 3 years.

The employers like it because we document what was done, including a comprehensive test at the end. The journeymen like it because they get paid for their time and don't have to spend their own time obtaining CEU's to stay current. We all like it because it is interactive and therefor pertinent; I probably learn more than any of the students. I try to keep things lively with a lot of worksheets, breaks, a few videos; and mostly trying to not let them fall asleep. I personally feel the interaction and feedback is more authentic than filling out an on-line course.

It can be done.......

On line courses dont work for 70E, they are too generic and your training has to incorperate too many things about your system and your companies policies. I designed one a few years back just because so many people asked for it, thousands have used it, but I wouldnt recommend it, still too generic.

When I did this training I had 6 different version of the course, ranging from 4 hours to 4 days, and even those were customized for the facillity.

I am also developing a training curriculum and would like to know if anyone knows of any readily available course material, and/or list of topics that should be included in such a class.

What methods do you find most effective in teaching an arc flash class?

That all depends on the audience.

I have been doing NFPA 70E and OSHA Electrical Safety Training for over a decade. I do not just teach Arc Flash & Arc Blast. NFPA 70E and OSHA require more. I use on of 5 or 6 different classes depending on who is in the class.

At the request of some of my good industrial customers, I developed a Train the Trainer Class that includes a license to use our power points, videos, testing materials, etc. It is a 3-Day class. I am not sure how much information I can provide here without breaking any forum rules.

I'm looking for instructors residing in the Western U.S. that have curriculum and experience to teach Qualified Worker training. The students are electric utility workers in engineering and other areas that have need to enter substations, open padmount transformers and view high voltage electrical equipment in order to take readings, name plate information, etc.
