UNITS OF COMPETENCE

We offer certification examinations in the following IECEx CoPC units of comptetence:

EX 000

Basic knowledge and awareness to enter a site that includes a classified hazardous area

This Unit of Knowledge covers the safety obligations and minimum basic knowledge of persons entering a site that has classified hazardous areas. It requires an understanding of the nature of hazardous areas, limitations on devices that may be taken into a hazardous area and the occupational health and safety responsibilities and procedures related to hazardous areas. This unit does not include requirements for ensuring the explosion protection aspects of plant and machinery.

EX 001

This Unit of Competence covers the basic principles of protection in explosive atmospheres of plant and machinery. Ex 001 is based on various parts of IEC 60079 series, and it is a prerequisite for the higher units.

This Unit of Competence covers knowledge and skills to classify areas where explosive materials may exist.

 

Competence in this unit requires a degree, diploma or equivalent in a technical subject., see IECEx OD 504 for details.
