Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM PPE REQUIRED FOR OUR WORK?

The minimum PPE will depend upon the hazards involved with the specific equipment, voltage levels encountered and tasks being performed. There is really no “one size fits all” PPE for electrical work

HOW OFTEN IS NFPA 70E / ELECTRICAL SAFETY TRAINING REQUIRED?

The “Classroom” training is required at least once every three years, unless it is determined with annual audits that the person is not following the requirements, then retraining is required before they continue working. The field demonstration of skills is required to be verified / recertified every year (annually)

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

I have included here all of the costs and fees associated with the training based upon levels as to what the person is doing electrically and what their exposure is to voltages and the associated hazards.

CAN YOU COMBINE TRAINING AND OFFER A “CUSTOM” CLASS?

Yes, I can combine training to present a “custom” training scenario for your company or group. The fees would normally be less than the training performed separately. This is done on an as requested (ad hoc) basis as requested by the company.

DO YOU TRAVEL TO PRESENT TRAINING AND HOW FAR?

I can travel anywhere in the United States and over seas with a little advanced notice of the need. So far in 2016 I have traveled to New York, Virginia, North Dakota, Montana, Ohio, California, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas to present training.

IF YOU COME TO OUR FACILITY TO PRESENT THE TRAINING WHAT ARE THE FEES?

The fees are the same as stated in the sections for the specific training. There are of course travel charges such as travel time, mileage, per diem, and motel costs. Usually it is more cost effective to bring the instructor to the students rather than sending the students to the instructor.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PRESENT THE TRAINING AT OUR LOCATION?

I am self contained as far as equipment is concerned so all I need is room to do the training. The classroom portion is from 4 to 8 hours depending upon level. The skill evaluations/training requires access to energized equipment usually at least 480 volts three phase for taking voltage readings, identifying energized parts, and LOTO.

WHEN YOU TRAIN / CERTIFY THE STUDENTS IN THE CLASS WHAT DOCUMENTATION DO WE GET TO PROVE THE TRAINING WAS DONE?

Based upon skill level, hazards, equipment, tasks performed the documentation will be very specific to what is presented in the class and in the field. Samples of some of our documentation is presented with this proposal to give you an idea of the quality of the documentation.

WHO IS ACTUALLY CERTIFYING THE TRAINING AND SKILL PERFORMANCE?

I am the person certifying the classroom training and the skill training and certifications under my licenses, credentials and insurance. This takes the liability off the company and places all that liability on myself and my company (Dan Dudley and Associates).

DO YOU ACCEPT SOMEONE ELSES NFPA 70E TRAINING FOR PERFORMING A REFRESHER / RECERTIFICATION CLASS?

No, unfortunately too many people doing this training either are not qualified to present the training, or they do not do adequate skill training and evaluations. I know what is required for various voltage levels, equipment, and tasks. I only perform refresher training for students I have trained previously and know the skills they have demonstrated.

CAN / WILL YOU PERFORM ONLY THE CLASSROOM PORTION OF THE TRAINING?

Yes, if that is what you want me to do. However; this training only satisfies the Electrical Safety Awareness requirements for “Unqualified Persons” as required by NFPA 70E as recognized by OSHA for this training requirement.

DO YOU HAVE REFERENCES FOR YOUR TRAINING?

Yes, we have listed over 90 companies here in this proposal that we have performed training for. Please feel free to contact the Safety Department of any or all of these companies for a reference. I think you will be please with our reputation and our skill at presenting the material, adapting it to your situations (voltages, equipment, tasks, and hazards) to your people.

DO YOU OFFER A “TRAIN THE TRAINER” CLASS?

Yes, when we find people who are qualified to teach the required material and certify the skill performance of their people. Many people think that many years of experience performing the work “qualifies” them, this is simply not true. I reserve the right to not accept the qualifications of any one individual if I feel they cannot or will not be able to present the training as a qualified person. The person presenting any form of “Qualified” training must be qualified themselves otherwise the training is suspect and does not meet the OSHA requirements.
