    Hazardous Area Training

    Any recommendations for training available for designing equipment for Hazardous Area? I am interested in learning more about industrial installations in Class I Div 1 and Div 2 areas.

    I think what you are looking for is in API, but I cant remember the number.

    Why are you asking?

    API RP 505 is the "Zone" version and API RP 500 is the "Division" version of recommended practices for classification of locations in major petrochem facilities. NFPA 497 deals with the same subject[s] (Divisions and Zones) in chemical plants. Several other Standards are listed in Sections 500.4(B) and 505.4(B) Reference Standards; especially in their respective Informational Note No. 2

    API 540, Electrical Installations in Petroleum Processing Plants deals with more general petrochem installation applications.

    NFPA often has training classes for Hazardous locations.

    Nothing will beat OJT under an experienced professional.
