Candidates who have previously attended the CompEx Ex 01-04 (5 day) hazardous area training course are required to update their knowledge within 5 years according to the industry standard and to keep their Core Competency Certification.

The CompEx 01-04 two day refresher session is suitable for technical personnel  that are immersed in this subject matter on a regular basis therefore would not require the re-training element of attending the CompEx Ex01-04 (5 Day course)

Please note upon booking the Refresher course candidates will be issued joining instructions including a Study Guide that must be completed prior to attending this Competency Validation Assessment Module.  

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 £525pp.

In order to register with the awarding body all candidates must bring their original in date 01-04 CompEx Certificate with them on the first morning of the course. Failure to do this will result in candidates not being able to sit the final assessment.

To re-validate your certification for another five years, you must undertake the refresher qualification within the initial five year period. Persons whose certificate(s) is no longer current i.e. outside of 5 years must complete their chosen course units again (i.e. a full Ex01-04 5 day course).
