CompEx Certification Scheme

Focus on safety by emphasising competence with CompEx Certification Scheme

CompEx is an internationally recognized course and qualification in explosive atmospheres. It provides competency-based assessment for personnel working in hazardous locations. Intertek has licensed CompEx centres offering courses that are leading the way in competency validation. Combining both theory and practical skills, our courses are hands-on and interactive.

CompEx validation and hazardous area training are most relevant and essential to people who are involved in the design, selection, installation, inspection and maintenance of equipment, and for those managing people in these disciplines.

Intertek is an ATEX Notified Body, DSEAR/ATEX 2014/34/EU implementation specialist and CompEx Training Centre. Our facilities provide attendees with a comfortable learning experience with all the practical equipment required for hands-on assessment of the principals involved in hazardous area applications in a safe environment.
