CompEx 05-06 provides individual candidates with the relevant training and practical assessments on the installation, maintenance and inspection of electrical and instrumental systems in an environment where combustible dust may be present. Our training facilities are unique and custom built to include a realistic working environment and simulated hazardous areas. This course is split into separate sections and each candidate will be assessed on the practical skills and theoretical knowledge that they have obtained. They will be required to complete 2 practical assessments (1 installation and 1 inspection) and finally complete the multiple choice question paper. Successful completion of this course will result in a nationally recognised certificate.

From 1 April 2019, Compex have introduced the CompEx ID card as mandatory, the cost of this is £25 and is included in our price of £745pp.
