  • Why You should take this training program

    NEW – This course is now available via our interactive Live Online Training format. Live Online Training course length and content may vary from our in-classroom content. Click Here to ask us about the differences.

    A great awareness-level course, offered in both an online live virtual format for remote students and an onsite, in-class option to make it easier for your team to attend.

    This course is designed and intended for the non-electrical worker and emphasizes the role of the “unqualified electrical worker.” These persons often operate switches and breakers, perform basic checks, operate electrical power tools, handle extension cords or be in the vicinity of exposed energized electrical work. Understanding what tasks they can and cannot perform on electrical equipment safely is critical.

    Operators, supervisors, managers and HSE personnel find themselves exposed to certain electrical hazards; therefore, they are required to be trained in any number of 70E items as applicable for their work task.
