This NFPA 70E for Qualified Persons course is designed to be followed with equipment-specific on-the-job training and supervision prior to entry into work as a designated qualified person.

    • Hazard thresholds for capacitor stored energy values have been revised.
    • A major revision was made to Arc Flash PPE categories for DC.
    • An emergency response plan has been added to the list of required information for the job safety planning.
