What is IECEx CoPc?
IEC = International Electrotechnical Commission
Ex = Explosive atmospheres
IEC + Ex = IECEx
CoPC = Certificates of Personnel Competence.
IECEx CoPC = International Certification Scheme
The IECEx Certification of Personnel Competence (CoPC) is the first international scheme aimed at providing personnel with a worldwide recognized certificate.
It is for people who already have the Ex theoretical knowledge and years of Ex practical Experience, who want to put their knowledge to be tested by an independent Body. It has nothing to do with Training.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are now more restrictions on traveling, workspaces and events.
To ensure that we can continue to provide training and certification services to our clients, we are now offering our clients a new online service, which provides the possibility to conduct training and examination remotely on following CoPC Units:
Unit Ex 000 Basic knowledge and awareness to enter a site that includes a classified hazardous area
Unit Ex 001 Apply basic principles of protection in Explosive Atmospheres
Unit Ex 002 Perform classification of hazardous areas
Unit Ex 003 Install explosion-protected equipment and wiring systems
Unit Ex 006 Test Electrical Installations in or associated with Explosive Atmospheres
Unit Ex 004 Maintain equipment in Explosive Atmospheres
Unit Ex 007 Perform visual and close inspection of electrical installations in or associated with Explosive Atmospheres
Unit Ex 008 Perform a detailed inspection of electrical installations in or associated with Explosive Atmospheres
Unit Ex 009 Design electrical installations in or associated with Explosive Atmospheres
