Arc Flash Basic and Hazard Planning Program
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course gives an overview of arc flash hazards and concisely reports the different causes, nature, findings, directions and processes related with arc flash hazards. In order to address the hazard, it is first required to formulate an understanding of the process.


An electric arc or an arcing fault is a flashover of electric current through air in electrical devices from one exposed live conductor to another or to ground. Arc flash hazard is the risk of excessive heat exposure and severe burn hurt due to arcing faults in electrical systems. Electric arcs generate intense heat, sound blast and pressure waves. They have really high temperatures, radiate acute heat, can inflame clothes and induce serious injuries that can be fateful.


This 4 PDH online course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of arc flash assessment and adequate hazard planning program.
