I am looking for training on Arc Flash Studies. There are a lot of places that offer 70e training, but I am looking for something more technical in a course that educates someone in performing the study. I have not been able to find one that really goes into the "nut and bolts" of it. Does anyone here know of one?

I teach a class on performing the actual study. [url='http://www.brainfiller.com/customers/Course-Information.aspx']Next scheduled class is Scottsdale, AZ December 3 and 4th[/url]. Day one is about time current curves, short circuit calculations, labels etc. with a little bit of NFPA 70E only to see what the requirements are, day 2 is all about modeling, calculations, 2 second rule, 125 kVA rule, data, analysis etc. A pretty intense class from what people say.

Thanks for the information. Looks like I've been approved to take this class by my company, and I should be attending. What materials comes with the class? Is there are a DVD of the lecture, in case there is something I need review if my memory gets rusty?

The course workbook contains copies of almost 400 slides and worksheets. The book that is shown in the sponsor section "Complete Guide to Arc Flash Calculation Studies" is also provided which contains most everything I discuss and then some. If you have any other questions, I suggest you contact our program director and she can help you off line from the brainfiller.com website. - Thanks!

I took my first 70E class from Jim Phillips. The class is top notch and very informative. I then had Jim come to our plant site and teach 70E to our maintenance techicians.

The project/process managment and documentation aspect is worse than the technical side. If you have geographically disperse facilities and/or multiple engineers involved it's worth significant planning time or you'll end up creating a monster. Don't ask me how I know...
