Working on explosive (Ex) equipment and working in potentially hazardous environments pose great challenges for personnel. E-learning courses can help prepare you to make effective decisions in these environments. Complete the courses*  to learn how to interpret codes on Ex equipment marking plates and how to behave safely in potentially hazardous environments.

IECEx and ATEX Marking of Electrical Equipment

Ex equipment carries a marking plate with details about what surroundings and external influences the equipment has been certified for — critical information for selecting and installing equipment in a potentially hazardous area. Complete this training to learn how electrical equipment is Ex-marked, learn to distinguish between the different types of markings and gain insight into criteria for selecting equipment to use in an installation in a potentially hazardous area. This course covers markings that follow the IEC standard as well as markings given by the ATEX directive.

This course is designed for electrotechnical and automation personnel and other personnel planning or working on electrical installations in potentially hazardous areas within the EU/EEA. It will also be useful for manufacturers and suppliers of Ex equipment within the EU/EEA.
