5 day course
CompEx Ex01 to Ex04
CompEx is the national training and assessment scheme for electro technical crafts personnel who work in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as on and off-shore Oil and Gas Pharmaceuticals, Energy and Chemical industries.
CompEx is a national joint training initiative developed and implemented by the Engineering Equipment and Material Users Association (EEMUA) and JTL and is supported by the Health and Safety Executive.
JTL, who is the national training agent for the electrical contracting industry, has been appointed to develop, operate and manage the training provision across the UK and has licensed and accredited a number of centres to deliver the training and assessment.
This 5-day course aims to deliver competence based training and assessments in the selection, use, maintenance and inspection of electrical apparatus in potentially explosive atmospheres in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 60079 series relevant standards.
On successful completion of the assessments the candidates will be issued with a certificate of core competence by JTL and EEMUA.
Delegates should be a competent Electrician and/or instrument craft personnel. You will be required to bring photographic identification and suitable evidence to prove your competence. This ideally will be certification/letter from your employer or a JIB Gold card.
