Get Smart for a Better, Safer Business. Canary HLE is encouraging people to undertake its CompEx Foundation (ExF) Course in an effort to increase safety awareness among those working in explosive or flammable environments.
The CompEx ExF course provides an introduction into potentially explosive environments where gases, vapours and dust are present. This theory-only course, which takes 1.5 days to complete, is suitable for technical and non-technical personnel who require a basic understanding of hazardous work areas, or who wish to develop their knowledge before undertaking more in-depth CompEx courses.
The aim of the CompEx ExF course is to relay information to candidates such that they can:
The course is led by Hazardous Location Industry expert Brian Schneider, a global specialist in intrinsic safety and flame-proof/explosion designs, evaluations, and a senior member of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) Section 18 Committee. Brian has designed and built laboratories in Canada and Europe that test hazardous location equipment in various explosive atmospheres.
Virtual via Zoom Videoconference.
In-person classes available upon request.
45 minute online multiple choice exam; invigilated by the instructor
The CompEx ExF Foundation Course is an entry-level qualification for technical and non-technical persons working in potentially explosive or flammable environments where gases, vapours and dust can form a hazardous atmosphere. Get smart, be safer at work.
Candidates who successfully complete the course will receive an internationally recognised CompEx Certificate for Foundation in Hazardous Awareness
Attendees will receive a letter of attendance that outlines each topic covered and time spent. This letter may support the candidate’s application for professional development credits.
