IECEx Training in Malaysia

IECEx CoPC Preparatory 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.

Capeserve Energy is the leading Hazardous Area and IECEx Recognised Training Provider.  Our mission is to protect people, assets, and the environment by providing individuals with the knowledge and skills required to work safely and competently in hazardous environments.

As a Recognised Training Provider (RTP) under the IECEx system, all our IECEx preparatory courses are aligned with the structure and requirements of IECEx OD 503 and IECEx OD 504 that support the IECEx Certified Persons Scheme.

Capeserve Energy’s IECEx training aims to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills required to design, classify, select, install, maintain, inspect and audit equipment in hazardous locations according to IECEx standards. The training aims to prepare the candidate for IECEx CoPC (Certification oPersonnel Competence) assessments and ensure they have the necessary technical knowledge and competence to work safely and effectively in hazardous environments. The ultimate goal of IECEx training is to reduce the risk of accidents, injuries, and damage to equipment in hazardous locations.
