The CompEx curriculum includes specific knowledge and practical assessments based upon the IEC 60079 set of standards, including parts 14 & 17.

C&P Engineering Services has partnered with Gower College Swansea (GCS) to provide their global experience and extensive Ex knowledge of installing and inspecting hazardous area electrical equipment. The new CompEx training facility in Tycoch, Swansea provides delegates with a state-of-the-art learning experience in a safe and comfortable environment. Equipped with purpose built training booths, workshops and classrooms, the centre offers full practical and theoretical training and assessment.

The main objective of the CompEx Training Centre is to improve the knowledge and practical skills set of employees and provide a pathway for local and national companies that wish to demonstrate compliance with regards to the ATEX 137 European Directive, IEC set of standards and DSEAR regulations. It will also assist companies that wish to ensure they have a sustainable, competent electrical workforce to maintain and install electrical equipment within potentially explosive atmospheres. Vocational training is also a key element for the electrical labour market to function correctly, to create employment and to promote workers competency and professionalism.
