EngWorks Inc and the Alberta Electrical Alliance Form Strategic Partnership

EIN AEA Engworks 400

June 8, 2021

EngWorks Inc. and the Alberta Electrical Alliance have announced a strategic partnership as of May 27, 2021.  The partnership centers on exclusive discounts and revenue sharing for AEA sales of EngWorks Inc’s specialized hazardous locations online course. 

“Our members get an exclusive discount not offered through any other association in Alberta,” says Tara Ternes, CEO of the Alberta Electrical Alliance.  

EngWorks is Canada’s only online course provider specializing in hazardous locations (HazLoc).  EngWorks Inc’s prior success with in-house training to multinational corporations led to the creation of online training course that is accessible to anyone who needs hazloc training.

“In Canada, we have two systems of classification in common use.  This has created a lot of confusion for designers, installers and inspectors as our codes permit both Zone and Division products to be installed in a classified facility.  The only way to resolve this confusion is through education.  This is why we created the EngWorks School of Hazloc,” says Principal Engineer and company owner, Allan Bozek.

The Hazardous Locations Fundamentals course teaches how to choose, design, install, inspect, and troubleshoot equipment for use in hazardous locations.  It offers seven hours of online video instruction, based on Sections 18 and appendix J18 of Canadian Electrical Code.  The course incorporates quizzes to test knowledge and an online course blog, where students can ask questions and gain feedback.  The course is mobile compatible providing access to valuable information anytime and anywhere you need it.   

These courses precede the upcoming anticipated launch in September of the ExHAC Hazardous Area Classifications course. This ExHAC course will incorporate a software application to assist in performing calculations in accordance with the IEC 60079-10-1 standard for classifying areas where an explosive gas atmosphere may exist.

“Explosion safety is everyone’s responsibility,” says Bozek.
