Non-Electrical Design Course

Ex h Non-Electrical Designers Course

ATEX and IECEx Non-Electrical for Design and Maintenance Personnel

ExVeritas has created a unique two-day training course that specifically addresses the skills required to build competence for non-electrical and assembly risk assessment and certification to ISO 80079-36 and 37 (Ex h). This is a technical course, not an overview. It is aimed at designers or project engineers responsible for design compliance or certification of non-electrical equipment or assemblies.

The Presenter has 20 years’ experience in this field and has a vast wealth of equipment related examples to draw from. He is a current practitioner in non-electrical and assembly certification so you can be assured that the content is relevant and applied with a practical bias. ExVeritas is an ATEX Notified Body for non-electrical certification and an IECEx Certification Body for non-electrical certification to ‘Ex h’

Free software is also provided to all delegates to assist with some of the calculations required for non-electrical approval.
