    Jason hi, I'm new on the Forum and would like some assistance.
    I'm in the same boat as where you were. On the outskirts of SA. I'm situated in Nelspruit. Which books/standards do I need in order to prepare for paper 1 and 2 Hazardous location as no one can assist me. A company called Ark Technologies does give the classes but they do not want to divulge which books I require.

    Guys where I am working we have an open furnace. I find it hard to understand what a hazardous area is. We are exposed to explossions, hot dust, gases etc. I have 8 years working there as a qualified electrician. And did my wireman's licence in the process of registering with labour department. Please help with explanation about hazardous areas please.

    Hi guys, I've been an IE for 4years now, passed the specialised paper 1&2. Went for unit standards at P&T but didn't finish. Now I actually need some exposure with hazloc and struggling to get a company that specialises with hazardous areas which can take me in. Any help?

    Tell us some of the challenges you face becoming a master electrician...

    Have they made it too difficult.

    Tooo many technical qualifications...I see they have dropped the standard from N6 - N4 and now down to N3.

    Too difficult to find a place to gain experience due to the lack of suitability qualified master electricians to pass on their knowledge?

    Would it not be better to split the master electrician into separate categories ...like they have done with single phase tester etc... ie qualify to work in gas or dust or flammable liquids or hospitals...etc...what are the chances that you will work in all these field? not likely and i talk from 38 years hands on in the industry.

    Share your frustrations.

    Is there a shortage or demand for master electricians?

    Do they fall into the correct salary bracket considering the risk and qualifications required to get a red card?
