How did we Earn the NFPA 70e Certification as Trainers?
The NFPA 70e Certification process is rigorous and includes testing and examinations put together by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). Due to the severity of risk associated with Arc Flash Hazards, the difficulty of this training is rightfully challenging.
Engineered Electric Services is NFPA Certified. Businesses all over Florida and across the US have trusted us with the safety of their employees which pushes us to continue our education process while providing outstanding NFPA 70e 2021 training.
