Blue Dog Training’s Explosive Power Tools Short Course is designed to provide an understanding of the theory and practice related to PATs/Explosive Power Tools (Ramset and Hilti).
Before using any powder-actuated tool, an operator must be a “competent person”. This means that through training and experience the operator has gained the knowledge and skills to safely complete tasks that they may be required to perform with the tool. Operators who are colour blind must be able to demonstrate that they can identify the different charges. Before a worker can work unsupervised, they must be trained and gain competence while working under the supervision of experienced operators. Extra training will also be required for hazard-specific situations like working in confined spaces.
Upon completion you will be issued with a Statement of Completion. This course provides the theory and underpinning knowledge required. Employers can use this course with their own enterprise practical training on-the-job to cover their Work Health and Safety obligations.
