This course has been updated to reflect changes in the IEEE 1584-2018 standard.

In the course, we describe how EasyPower follows established arc flash standards and procedures to perform arc flash risk assessment. The course includes videos, quizzes, and exercises so you can learn how to to perform arc flash analysis and generate arc flash labels using EasyPower.

You have up to 45 days after your enrollment to complete the course. 

This course is eligible for 0.8 CEU credits.

Note: If you are purchasing the course for someone else to use, please sign up with their name and contact information so that they receive the appropriate communications about their enrollment and receive CEU certifications in their name.

You can use your own version of EasyPower (version 10.2 or later is required to perform the examples related to the IEEE 1584-2018 standard) or you can request a limited-use trial copy from training@easypower.com. The trial version includes all of the modules you need to successfully complete the course.
