Self-Administered Test: Terms, Definitions, Interpretations and Concepts; Case Study
This is a half-day overview course designed for persons who work in some capacity on equipment to be used in a hazardous location anywhere in the world (“Ex equipment”). This course provides an overview of the global certifications for such equipment. We will first discuss the need for certifications and the legislative requirements. We will then introduce the main four certifications used globally: IECEx, ATEX, North American and the UKCA Certification for hazardous location products. We will compare them, explore the benefits of multiple certificates, and will leave participants with practical advice about how to minimize the obstacles related to their achievement.
This is a foundation course that covers every step of the certification process. It prepares participants to achieve certifications with the least amount of time and effort.
