About The Electrical Safety Training System:
The ESTS is a state of the art, adult oriented arc flash and shock training program. It is fully narrated, uses photos, videos, graphics, interactive elements and a 3D Virtual Electrical Workplace (e.g. MCC/Electrical Room) to teach the student how to apply the tools within the CSA Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety Standards. Upon successful completion of the course, attendees will have the knowledge and skills to mitigate or reduce exposure to the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock.
The ESTS is a detailed and comprehensive program which usually takes students between 4 and 6 hours to complete over a 30 day time period.

"I recently took the online Arc Flash Course offered by the Electrical Contractors Association of BC and found the course material very beneficial. It outlined clear identification of PPE requirements and gave a complete understanding of the process of working on energized equipment while satisfying CSA Regulation Z462-08. The course demonstrated the correct way to minimize risk and mitigate these hazards. I would recommend this course to any electrical workers who want to protect themselves on the job site."

"I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about the dangers of Arc Flash so they can minimize the risk of injury. The course was easy to register and use online. It gave us valuable work and safety information that we could also pass on to other workers. The course modules were very concise and to the point."
