Hazardous Locations
UK Training Programme

If you are involved with projects associated with hazardous areas,


which involves the installation or inspection and maintenance of
electrical or non-electrical e.g. mechanical; equipment that is in
accordance with EN or IEC standards associated with potentially
explosive atmospheres, it is likely that the new training and
competence requirements will affect you.
The electrical installation standard IEC 60079-14: 2007 specifies
in detail the competency levels and the requirements for people
involved in the manufacture and installation of equipment or plant
designed for use in hazardous (potentially explosive) atmospheres.
The requirement for competency of installers applies to persons
installing equipment on a plant and is equally applicable to many
manufacturers who assemble certified equipment to form an
assembly. Management and Design personnel also have specified
training requirements listed in the standard.

Ex F Foundation Course
Course overview

Agenda

A nationally recognised certificate in the basic theory


of hazardous areas.

National core competence


certificate for hazardous
locations

This unit is part of the national scheme for the training and
certification of core competence of personnel who work on
equipment for use in explosive atmospheres. Such training
provides companies with a target for their employees, which
is recognised by the self-regulated sector of this industry as a
necessary component of their Personnel Competency Matrix. For
this reason, it is considered that assessment of the knowledge
imparted by the training will be an essential part of any
programme.

Directives and regulations

Intertek ensures that this course is up-to-date with the latest


requirements of the European Directives, ATEX and IEC
Standards.

Equipment for use in


hazardous areas

Who should attend?

Hazardous areas
DSEAR
Ignition sources of gas and
dust
Area classification
Signage
Categories and EPLs

Types of protection, electrical


and non-electrical
Ingress protection (IP rating)

This course contains no practical skills training or practical


assessment and is therefore more suited to anyone involved in
Hazardous Area work that does not actually conduct installation
or inspection of electrical equipment. Unlike the other CompEx
units, no prior knowledge of hazardous areas is required for full
participation in this unit.

Marking

The course can be delivered as an OPEN course at our training


Centre or delivered at your location, minimising travel and
disturbance to the people attending the course.

Since the introduction of ATEX (DSEAR) users must identify all


possible ignition sources that could arise in hazardous areas. The
identification of these ignition sources includes electrical and nonelectrical (mechanical) items of equipment.

Flash point

In addition to the existing safety measures applied to ensure safety


of electrical equipment in hazardous areas measures for explosion
safety now apply to non-electrical equipment. The safety
measures for non-electrical equipment used in hazardous areas
not only include the design of equipment but also those aspects
required for safe selection, installation, maintenance, inspection
and repair.

Ex12 Application Design Engineers


Course overview

Agenda

When designing an electrical installation for use


in explosive atmospheres there is a requirement to
consider the design, selection and erection of the
overall system.

Legislation

The Ex12 course is intended to give an in-depth awareness to


the candidate with regard to explosive atmospheres formed
by gases, vapours, mists and combustible dusts. It covers the
application design and selection of electrical equipment, along
with the requirements of IEC 60079-14: Electrical installations
design, selection and erection, this includes but not limited to the
selection of equipment, cabling and cable glands etc.

Ingress Protection

The course consists of classroom based theoretical training. There


are a number of individual exercises and group exercises covering
equipment selection, labelling, environmental conditions etc. The
course also covers intrinsically safe systems and the necessary
parameters required to ensure correct and safe installation is
achieved.

Mobile CompEx
Course overview

Agenda

Our focus is not just on training, but also on competency


assessment through a candidates demonstration of those practical
skills necessary to work safely in hazardous areas. Historically
CompEx has been delivered from a number of fixed centres based
mainly within the United Kingdom.

The syllabus and assessment


is identical to our standard
CompEx courses Ex01-Ex04.

Designed for use outside of the United Kingdom, Intertek is


the first CompEx centre to offer the scheme to a global market
through their mobile CompEx Assessment Rigs. Based closely on
our principal centres in the UK our mobile rigs are transported via
bespoke flight cases and assembled at a suitable location on or
near your site.

Who should attend?


Designed for larger groups of candidates who are unable for
economic/logistical reasons to attend a course at a fixed CompEx
training centre.

Please note, through discussions


with our CompEx team there
exists the opportunity to extend
the time allocated for the
training element of the course,
if appropriate to the target
audience (e.g. if English is not a
candidates first language)
Course Options
Gas & Vapours Ex01-Ex04
Duration - minimum 5 days
but can be extended

see our mobile CompEx demonstration video:

Due to logistical considerations and variable numbers
of candidates course costs are quoted separately.
