Arc Flash Hazard Markings and Arc Energy Reduction

Course Syllabus: Arc Flash Hazard markings are required to be installed on electrical service equipment located in other than dwelling units. This marking is designed to provide electrical workers adequate information so they can make determinations on the appropriate personal protective equipment to safely work on the equipment. This course will cover the NEC requirements for the Arc Flash Hazard Marking and the 2 methods for marking the service equipment. This course is designed to provide inspectors, installers, and designers an understanding of the applicable NEC code requirements for the Arc Flash Hazard Markings. Additionally, this course will cover the requirement for Arc Energy Reduction that is required in the NEC. Arc Energy Reduction and Arc Flash Hazard Markings are interconnected so this course is designed to discuss how the separate sections work together to address electrical worker safety.
