CompEx Certification is an internationally recognised ‘qualification’ for people working in or needing awareness of explosive atmospheres and is a UKAS accredited certication scheme. It is by far the most highly recognised industry qualification and mandatory for many sites. CompEx certification is referred to as an example of a suitable competence qualification by the UK HSE for DSEAR in their DSEAR Guide*.
As CompEx are monitoring the work environment for areas where new or additional ‘site specific’ training or linked training may be required, new courses have been developed for specifc industry sectors or engineering groups.
Ex09-10 CompEx Inspection & Installation for Water Utilities
The new CompEx Ex09-Ex10 ‘Water Utilities Qualification’ has been recently re developed by CompEx with an industry wide working group. Uniquely this course covers ‘gas and dust’ in a compact 1-week course (with supplied e-learning prior to attendance). Exercises and examples in this course cover the unique nature of water utilities.
MTEx01-MTEx04 Installation & Inspection for Maritime Vessels
This qualification (MTEx01 – MTEx04) has been developed for technicians and engineers working on vessels that use gas or low-flashpoint fuels such as LNG. Based on requirements set out in the standards IEC 60079:14, IEC 60079:17, IEC 60092-502 and the IGF Code, this course is ideal for experienced technicians and engineers with relevant qualifications of any merchant or commercial vessels including cruise lines, bulk carriers, general cargo, container, and tankers that are powered with gas or low-flashpoint fuels such as LNG.
Functional Safety Foundation (FSF) Course
The Functional Safety Foundation (FSF) course introduces the concept of Functional Safety (FS) and its relationship to the safe operation of equipment. Functional Safety is an integral part of achieving safe operation in the use of control systems. This theory only course is suitable for both technical and non-technical personnel who require a basic understanding of Functional Safety. Based on IEC 61511, this course provides grounding knowledge of Functional Safety terminology, concepts, and standards to facilitate understanding.
