IECEX CERTIFICATION OF PERSONNEL COMPETENCE
IECEx Certified Persons Scheme - CoPC (Certificate of Personnel Competence)
This is IECEx's certification system for people to prove their ability and experience to work with Ex explosion protection equipment that meets international standards.
The IECEx Certified Persons Scheme provides the global Ex industries with a single system for the assessment and qualification of persons meeting the competency prerequisites needed to properly implement the safety requirements based on the suite of IEC International Standards covering explosive atmospheres, e.g. the IEC 60079 and IEC 61241 series of standards.
Bureau Veritas Italia together with Australian partner, and Certifying Body Competency Training can assess in Italy the following Ex Units of competency:
Ex 000: Basic knowledge and awareness
Ex 001: Apply basic principles of protection in explosive atmospheres
Ex 002: Perform classification of hazardous areas
Ex 003: Install explosion-protected equipment and wiring systems
Ex 004: Maintain equipment in explosive atmospheres
Ex 006: Test electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres
Ex 007: Perform visual & close inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres
Ex 008: Perform detailed inspection of electrical installations in or associated with explosive atmospheres

NOTE: This course covers only Units 001/003/004/006/007/008. Other Units are available on request.
An IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competence demonstrates to the International Ex industry that a Certified Person has been found to operate procedures that provide confidence that the work undertaken complies with IECEx requirements and with the requirements of the relevant IEC Standard (s).
It is a transversal qualification achievable both by personnel who have already been working, in planning to improve their knowledge, and by recent graduates to be more attractive in the world of work. The course is designed to underpin knowledge and complete a practical assessment of electrical personnel who undertake the physical installation and assembly of new ‘Ex’ equipment, and, who perform preventive maintenance and inspections on previously installed equipment.
CERTIFICATION: At the end of the training path and after passing the theoretical and practical exam, the IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competence is released. This IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competence is issued by an approved IECEx Certification Body, Competency Training, whose identifier is “ACT”.
The path consists of 5 days (40 hours):
- 3 days of THEORETICAL COURSE
- 2 days of PRACTICAL AND THEORETICAL EXAMS
