IECEx Training Courses

IECEx Training Courses


IECEx is a voluntary system which provides an internationally accepted means of proving compliance with IEC standards. IEC standards are used in many national approval schemes and as such, IECEx certification can be used to support national compliance, negating the need in most cases for additional testing.

Competence depends on technical knowledge, skill, experience and training. Measurement of competence is a difficult task and requires specific assessment methods which have been developed by the IECEx Certification of Personnel Competence Scheme. Competence evolves with years and may deteriorate, so continued training and assessment is necessary.

CAPESERVE’s Ex Courses fulfill the technical knowledge requirement for various areas of design, selection, installation, maintenance, inspection, audit, overhaul and repair of Ex equipment based on IECEx CoPC scheme. These technical courses are training courses for IECEx CoPC assessments and our trainers are IECEx CoPC certified professionals with many years of experience in similar field.
