Is anyone aware of any Train the Trainer type courses out there where a person could be trained to be an instructor for NFPA70E and be able to certified (if there is such a thing) and capable of running a course that would meet the OSHA requirements in this area? Are there any trainer requirements? There are many courses out there that claim to meet the OSHA and NFPA requirements for training materials and offer certificates for completion. We are interested in training one of our staff members so that they can train the team.

There are many organizations that perform NFPA 70E training that are on this forum, a few conduct Train the Trainer programs as well. I’m sure they will present themselves but hopefully not turn this into a flood of promotion/commercialism. Contact via arc flash forum PM works well for that.

There are not any requirements about certifying and/or presenting which makes it somewhat difficult. I have run into this many times. That makes due diligence on your part very important. Don’t confuse the term “Qualified” in promotional material and “Certificate” thinking that people will be qualified and/or certified once completing the training. Words that are thrown around but can be misleading.

Good luck with your search!

Hi Tblank.
Jim here, the author of Arc Flash forum is a great guru. NFPA 70E is a consensus standard. OSHA is a federal law. Jim teaches how they are related in his arc flash class. Here is a link for one of his upcoming training:

You can also customize your requirement and request for training at your facility. I had attended all his classes. His knowledge & experience is incredible.

e-Hazard offers TTT using our training materials. I don't know of any others and our materials are updated as the standards change.

We do have qualification requirements and over 1300 trainers have gone through our TTT. Many also take the NFPA CECSP exam upon completion which is administered by NFPA. There is NO official OSHA certification for trainers for NFPA 70E but some do complete the OSHA 500 certification but OSHA materials on electrical safety are mainly on 1910.269 construction and of limited use to only utility contractors.

Our materials are based on NFPA 70E and OSHA 1910.269 and are certified for use in many states for continuiing education for electricians.

Here is info on the e-Hazard Train the Trainer.

https://www.e-hazard.com/arc-flash-training/ttt-lv-hv.php

The training is 4 days and includes license to use the materials and unlimited updates. The workbooks and NFPA 70E standards must be purchased for each student to avoid NFPA copyright issues. We support all our TTT graduates with technical consulting for student questions and enjoy a great relationship with our graduates.

Let us know if we can assist.

I develop and deliver NFPA 70E training for clients with the Engineering firm that I work for. The most valuable and relative credential I got to feel qualified for the task was to become a CESCP, which is an NFPA-certified Electrical Safety Compliance Professional. There are prerequisites that must be met in order to sit for the 3-hour 70E test that are simplified if you're a PE, which I am. But those pre-reqs can also be met by being a registered electrician, which I also am.
There's also a requirement to get 40 hours of CEUs in the 3-year CESCP renewal cycle, so by being certified you stay abreast of all things 70E.
I also suggest Mike Holt's Guide to Becoming a Great Instructor which is a good 3-hour course for development of soft-skills in the training arena.
Good luck with it.
