A four-part Arc flash educational series begins Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010,continuing May 20, Aug. 19, and Nov. 18.

Arc Flash University 2010,which includes the opportunity for continuing education units (CEUs),is offered by Plant Engineering , in cooperation with globalindustry experts and business leaders. Event sponsors are Iriss,Schneider Electric, and UE Systems Inc.

NFPA 70E and CSA Z462 are thetopics of the Feb. 25 webcast, at 11 a.m. PST, 1 p.m. CST, and 2 p.m.EST.

2009 editions of NFPA 70E and the CSA Z462 are the Standardsfor Electrical Safety in the Workplace for the US and Canada,respectively. What do these important documents mean for your electricsafety programs, and what are the common questions with regard tocompliance?

All webcasts within this series are free. CEUs will be available to those who register and pass the exam at three ofthe four events. Prevent the devastating effects of Arc Flash byunderstanding the latest safety standards, electrical inspectionprocesses, and protective equipment needed to lower risk to personneland equipment.
