Through systematic and practical trainings on earthing & bonding and electrical safety and risk will address the procedures necessary to isolate and manage electrical work

27-29 Nov 2017
Hilton Brisbane, Australia

Conference Workshop

Earthing and Bonding

The principal aim of the course will be to gain understanding and insight into the physics of earthing and the application of those principles to earthing issues on your site. There will be demonstrations, hands-on earth fault calculations, practical examples and class participation throughout the training. The trainer has been training in the principles of AS2067:2016 from before its release and is well placed to review one year on and respond to questions from those who have applied it to problems.

Workshop Moderator: Stephen Palmer
