The Qualified Electrical Worker (QEW) series helps the employer meet the NFPA and OSHA requirements that workers be qualified. This series assures both employee and the employer that proper attention and training have been given to the employee concerning potential electric shock, fire and arc flash hazards.

Students have a choice of taking one or both of the courses concerning voltage (above 600 volts or less than 600 volts). Taking this into consideration, the Certificate Program can consist of seven or eight courses.

ELECTIVE courses (one is required, but both can be taken):

QEW142: OSHA Electrical Requirements LESS THAN 600 Volts (0.4 CEUs)

QEW143: OSHA Electrical Requirements ABOVE 600 Volts (0.4 CEUs)
