Course overview

Course delegates will receive 1 day of course delivery to provide them with the latest updates and refresh the content of the current directives and practices. Following delivery, the delegates are assessed in maintenance, installation and inspection.

This course was previously called CompEx Refresher.

The RPP now requires practical termination of armoured cable glands and practical inspection of Electrical and Instrument installations to IEC standards, therefore we would advise delegates to read through the Tool Box guide prior to attending.

This course aims to revise and update the requirements for the installation of electrical apparatus for use in hazardous areas.

At the end of the course you will:

  • Understand the principles of flammable gas, liquids and area classification
  • Know the principles of protection afforded by Ex ‘d’, ‘e’, ‘n’, ‘p’ and ‘i’ apparatus, substances and their symbols
  • Understand the certification and marking of apparatus
  • Understand ATEX 95 (equipment essential requirements)
  • Understand ATEX 137 (workplace essential requirements)
