  • IECEx certificate

    The IECEx 05 scheme includes assessment of training, education and work experience as well as theoretical and practical exams. Personnel can be certified for one or more units (modules) of competence.

    Certificates of Personnel Competencies (CoPCs) issued under the international IECEx05 scheme enable personnel to demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills required to safely undertake specified types of work related to explosion equipment and installations. At DEKRA we provivide trainings with and without the option for the CoPC. A CoPC certificate is published online on the IECEx website and is valid for 5 years. Certified personnel receive a wallet card specifying the scope of their competencies.

    An IECEx05 CoPC issued by DEKRA shows that the certificate holder is capable of:

    • Working in hazardous areas safely
    • Conducting work competently
    • Ensuring that equipment is operating safely and in accordance with its protection techniques
