Good morning:
I have two good arc flash dvd's; one from Bussmann and one from Square D that I use, with permission, for the two classes I teach at County Vo-Tech.

Contact Bussmann and apply for the Safety Basic package, and go to the Sq. D website and request 'It's a matter of your safety'. Yes, they are mfg produced items, and contain some mfg tilted comments, but it's worth it.

If you happen to know the local mfg reps, they can usually supply the above quicker then the electronis/written requests.

Most mfg have similar training aids for instructors, all you have to do is some searching.

I have it but it is too big to email. I got it through metacafe.com. You have to download their software but I have no issues with it and I have found several videos I use for training.

I have forwarded a video to you as well as Electure to see if I can get it posted here. I don't know where it happened at, though.

Mr. Electrician,

The Square D video: "It's a Matter of Your Safety" can be downloaded from here:

http://www.squared.com/us/services_support/squared_services.nsf/unid/4DD224F99346DFEB852573870069326D/$file/safetyVideoFrameset.htm

I am unfamiliar with this video so I do not know if this will suffice for you. I would recommend that if you plan to show this video as part of instruction or seminar training that you contact your Square D representative regarding permission to reproduce this copyrighted material.

Hope this helps...
mweaver
