Forth Valley College CompEx Centre has launched the Ex11 CompEx module in Falkirk


May 08, 2018


A number of Mechanical Technicians, Team Leaders and Engineers from Ineos Grangemouth were delighted to participate in the pilot of CompEx Ex11 – Mechanical Integrity Course at Forth Valley College on 23rd – 25th April 2018. Undoubtedly this course will further enhance their knowledge and understanding and help interpret how these industry standards will be applied into their area of the plant.


Alan Montgomery from Ineos stated "This will further complement the suite of CompEx modules already integrated in to our Management Procedures here as we continue to meet both the Business and Regulatory need for Compliance."




Some of the quotes from those who attended were: 


‘The inspection Rig was excellent giving a real world assessment’


‘Lots of positives to take from the course’


The Ex11 course determines the core competency of mechanical practitioners working in explosive atmospheres. The course delivery is conducted over three days consisting of a mechanical hazardous area awareness course including the established CompEx Foundation Module (Ex F), with a written examination and finally overall core competency is validated with an installation and inspection practical assessment on mechanical equipment. 


Ex11 follows a syllabus to enable safe working practices for the international standard ISO 80079 Parts 36 & 37 and allows employers to benchmark the core competency requirements of both their staff and sub-contractors.
