CompEx EX01-04 Certification is only valid for five years from issue. To re-validate your certification for another five years, you must undertake the CompEx Refresher within the initial five year period. Persons whose certificate(s) is no longer current i.e. outside of 5 years must complete their chosen course units again (i.e. a full Ex01-04 course).
Who should attend the CompEx Refresher?
People who hold a current and valid CompEx Certificate can attended and re-validate. However, if you have not been actively involved in Ex work (inspection, maintenance and installation) then we highly recommend retaking the EX01-04 course.
It is important to note that many people find the examinations the CompEx Refresher Course more difficult that the examinations on EX01-04 course.
CompEx Refresher Exams
The refresher exams consist of:
- a multi-matrix written paper (selecting multiple answers)
- a practical which involves selecting appropriate equipment, glands and accessories based on environmental and classification requirements,
- a written paper on maintenance (you will be expect to write down how to rectify faults); and
- an inspection based on photographs of faults.
