CompEx Refresher Course Updated

CompEx Refresher (Ex F) now includes practical exams

From the 5th of June 2017 the CompEx Refresher has been substantially changed and updated and ExVeritas is now providing a 3 day course to provide more training and accommodate the new practical exams and longer theory exams.

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 Persons whose certificate(s) is no longer current i.e. outside of 5 years must complete their chosen course units again (i.e. a full Ex01-04 course).

The new refresher exams consist of

  • A new installation section test where you will have to select glands, washers, earth tags etc. to build up a compliant installation on a board to match the compex refresherspecification/classification provided.
  • Make off two glands (practically assessed). As with the original EX01-04 you will now be required to select and make off glands to various items of equipment. A qualified CompEx assessor will then check the glands have been correctly installed after the examination has finished.
  • Ex inspection on ‘real’ equipment. No more photographs! Inspection is carried out on real EX equipment with selected faults applied as you would have done on EX01-04.
  • A full 90 minute 60 question on line exam. This is a full knowledge test as you would have been taught on the original EX01-04 but may also include questions on more current standards and requirements.

The ExVeritas CompEx Refresher Courses also include an update on the basic changes in the new EN60079-14:2014 and EN60079-17:2014 and full training over 2 days (with day 3 being all exams) to cover the requirements of the new 90 minute 60 question on line exam.
