What is an Electrical Safety Course?
Electrical Safety Courses are programs designed to teach workers about the safe handling, installation, operation, and maintenance of electrical systems and equipment. Participating in OSHA electrical training can help individuals maintain a safe working environment.
When you complete this electrical safety course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
What's the Difference Between an Electrical Safety Course and the NFPA 70E Course?
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E Course also teaches individuals how to minimize and prevent exposure to electrical hazards.
However, there are a few differences between these two courses.
For one, the NFPA 70E course is more intensive, and is for professionals working in or around electrical environments. It is also a 4-hour long course.
Our online electrical safety course is the shorter version designed for anyone who works directly with electricity.
What Is an Electrical Safety Certificate Good For?
Depending on where you work, an electrical certificate from an electrical safety course might be required.
Many employers might also give hiring preference to candidates with a certificate of completion from an electrical safety course, even if they don’t require it.
