TCIA has made some exciting changes to the Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP), which will affect EHAP-trained employees. These changes go into effect on September 1, 2022.
In summary, EHAP-trained employees will no longer have to purchase annual renewal products that only cover specific parts of the full EHAP course to maintain their active status. Instead, they will be required to complete the full EHAP course each year. This updated course will provide a much-improved learning experience and will be fully online, narrated for ease of learning, and serve as the industry’s best practice.
- After September 1, EHAP renewal products (Renewals 1-5) will not be available for purchase.
- The EHAP program will be available at the same price. It will be considered the new program standard. The course offers open navigation, which means you can skip the tests, but all the updated content will also be available.
- The Z133 will no longer be included with the EHAP product but is available for purchase separately. All the content related to electrical hazards in the Z133 is included in the EHAP course.
- The enhancements to the new course include: The online EHAP is more interactive to improve the learning experience. The content can be fully narrated as well as the exams.
