The CompEx scheme provides candidates with essential knowledge and practical skills to enable safe working in potentially explosive atmospheres, whether due to flammable gas, combustible dust or other hazards.

The CompEx scheme consists of training and assessment units, which can be studied individually or in pairs. Candidates are required to demonstrate competence through a series of practical and written multi-choice tests.

Successful candidates receive a CompEx certificate of core competence. There are many licensed CompEx centres around the world. Details of these centres as well as latest CompEx Toolbox Guide are on the dedicated CompEx website

Above is an introduction to the CompEx scheme from Martin Jones of JT Limited.
