The ExVeritas course is unique, developed from the ground up to be ‘learn by doing’ rather than learn by listening. Our unique practice assignments, classroom workshops and practice exams to ensure that all delegates are properly prepared for all of the final qualification examinations.
The ExVeritas Ex12 course has been designed specifically for Designers and Applications Engineers, significantly expanding on the Ex01-Ex04 content and adding a vast amount of new information including a full day on intrinsically safe systems. We have developed the most comprehensive range of course hand outs, course homework’s and course learning aids (over a dozen separate hand outs in addition to the full professionally printed course notes) to ensure that candidates are properly prepared for examinations. Here is an example of some typical delegate feedback we received on passing CompEx EX12….
I couldn’t of done Ex12 without your extra days tuition, I really enjoyed and understood fully how to complete the I.S calculations and the homework is a great idea as it made me feel at ease once I had completed it and understood it fully. You have a great facility overall and are a very good tutor, I have recommended you to a lot of people that wanted to do the course…
As ExVeritas are also an ATEX Notified Body and IECEx Laboratory, we have 250 years Ex experience within our company including specialist instructors in many areas such as area classification or intrinsic safety, this means we can answer all of your questions, all of the time.
