EX Plant Designers Course

EX Plant Designers Course

An EX Designers Course that covers ATEX, IECEx & NEC Codes

Course Synopsis
This two day course is and introduction to Ex Design for global markets and is aimed at plant, system and equipment designers who are required to build EX skids, assemblies and plant (ATEX 95, ATEX 137, DSEAR, IECEx and NEC505 ). 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.

This course meets the required knowledge requirements specified in IEC/EN60079-14 for hazardous area plant, system and assembly designers and project engineers but is not assessed. For competence certification, we recommend the CompEx Ex 12 Designers Course (1 week). This course is an ideal introduction/foundation for people considering taking the Ex 12 qualification.
