Training CompEx for Executive Electrotechnical and Instrumentation Personnel In 1994 JTL (UK) initiated CompEx (Competence Explosive) training, which is now a mandatory requirement by the UK authorities. Seen internationally this certificate is increasingly recognized. Starting 2009 Quercus is a licensed training centre to provide CompEx training (modules on gas). In a practical way, all subjects that apply to explosion safety are discussed in this course, and everything is as reasoned in line with the principles of the various methods of protection. The candidate will gain insight and understand of the principles of the methods of protection, so as to be able to ensure the safety in this kind of installation.

Preparation & Installation of Ex ‘d’, ‘n’, ‘e’ and ‘p’ systems in explosive atmospheres. Maintenance & Inspection of Ex ‘d’, ‘n’, ‘e’ and ‘p’ systems in explosive atmospheres. Preparation & installation of Ex ‘i’ systems in explosive atmospheres. Maintenance & Inspection of Ex ‘i’ systems in explosive atmospheres.

Target Group This training is intended for electrical and instrumentation personnel who work in installations with a potential danger for dust or gas explosion hazards. This training provides practical meaning to the mandatory knowledge required for these technicians according to the Health and Safety Act, ATEX and the NEN EN IEC 60079-17.

Training duration The training duration is 5 days theory and practice, including the exam. Homework assignments and a practice exam are provided with the course.

“Over 40.000 candidates have been successful in obtaining CompEx Certificates of Core Competency.”
