Arc Flash course is excellent. The course starts with a confronting video presentation which sets the focus brilliantly, ensuring that the course material and information is absorbed. I feel a lot more confident about arc-flash assessment and management after completing this course and I’ll be using what I learnt next week. Definitely one to recommend.

“Daniel’s narrative of the course was clear and precise, which made not only the course easier but enjoyable, great stuff.”


Nothing to improve. It was great. Very useful for all electricians to improve awareness of the hazards associated with arc flash.


“Chris Halliday and the PowerLogic team have created a comprehensive arc flash awareness course. I was fortunate to get a chance to review and was impressed by the quality of the material. The online modules have been broken up to allow for a full day, or self paced with the longest module about 30 minutes.”

Brett Cleaves – Director of Engineering at Streamlined Energy

“Comprehensive course that is highly beneficial to many in the electrical industry. The pace of the course is just right. Excellent presentation! Excellent skills and knowledge gained. I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues.”
