Ex Manufacturers Course

Ex Manufacturers Course

An Ex Course that covers ATEX & IECEx Product Design and Manufacturer

Course Synopsis
This two day course is a introduction to Ex Product Design and Manufacturer for global markets and is aimed at plant, system and equipment designers who are required to design and build Ex Products. ATEX is used as the baseline for this training as it has (in the majority of cases) the most onerous requirements for equipment manufacturers, covering not just electrical equipment, but non-electrical equipment and even safe area safety systems. The differences with other major codes (IECEx, NEC505 and even NEC500 – Division 1 and 2) will be addressed on the course so that ‘global’ specifications and design can be achieved.

Why Our EX Course?
The Course is run by an ATEX Notified Body owner with 25 years experience with ‘Ex’ and ATEX Design and Certification. The presenter has completed thousands of ATEX projects including prototype design, manufacture and problem solving, and conducted 100’s of QAN/QAR audits. As the presenter is a ‘practitioner’, we can teach you how to design, manufacture and document effectively for certified equipment. As we are represented on Ex Standards committees and TC31/L6, you can be assured that the content is relevant and applied with a practical bias.

EX Designers Course Outline

  • The role of Ex Designers, Manufacturers and Certification Bodies
  • What is ATEX (legal, technical and terminology)

Target Audience
Design and Project Engineers (electrical and mechanical), Quality Managers, Production managers, ATEX/IECEx Responsible People

This course covers Product Certification Standards such as EN60079-0 and the requirements for Quality Systems such as ISO/IEC 80079-34. IEC/EN60079-14 requirements will be briefly addressed, but if you manufacture plant or complex skids/assemblies we would recommend CompEx Ex 12 Designers Course (1 week). This course is an ideal introduction/foundation for people considering taking the Ex 12 qualification. If you wish to learn how to design intrinsically safe products, we would recommend the intrinsic safety designers course.

Cost: £795 + VAT per person, includes lunch & refreshments.  Courses are limited to classes of 12 for effective interaction

Dates: 8-9 September 2015 (open) or bespoke for manufacturing companies (minimum 4 people) with the course program around the products you manufacture.
