CompEx & Hazardous Areas Training

North American CompEx Certification Training Courses

Intertek’s courses in hazardous areas aptitude and the CompEx Scheme are based on the principle that training is different than competency. Whether you’re interested in an introductory course such as Ex F Foundation, or technical intensives such as Ex01-Ex04 Gas & Vapors or Ex12 Application Design Engineers, you will benefit from learning from our expert, certified course instructors with years of experience both in the classroom as well as continued technical work in the field.

We offer the following courses at our licensed CompEx training center in Lafayette, Louisiana, US, or at our lab in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Customized training at your facility may also be available.
