EUTEX’s Abu Dhabi training center reaches CompEx accreditation

EUTEX’s training center in Abu Dhabi has been approved to deliver CompEx training and assessments. The center will service the United Arab Emirates, becoming the company’s sixth licensed training location worldwide.

The courses to be offered include CompEx 01-04, CompEx Foundation, CompEx EX12, CompEx EX14, among other courses from the CompEx catalog upon request.

The CompEx Scheme is the recognized global solution for validating the competency of staff working in all industries with potentially explosive atmospheres. The scheme, which is utilized by all the major operators and has been an industry benchmark for the past 30 years, aims to support and promote workplace safety by certifying personnel competency to the widely accepted IEC 60079 international standard.

EUTEX has a long-standing relationship with CompEx, with the company’s training centers in USA, India, Thailand, Singapore, and Myanmar having been approved CompEx training providers for the past decade.

Fraser Heggie, CTO of EUTEX and ultimately responsible for CompEx training commented: “EUTEX’s aim is to offer the worldwide energy industry an integrated and boundary-pushing approach to working safely in potentially explosive environments. Our Abu Dhabi center becoming an approved CompEx training provider is a testament to the quality of our training and the extensive knowledge and competency of our staff and will help us better support our clients in the Middle East.

“We strive to provide solutions that allow safe operations in potentially explosive atmospheres and being recognized as a leading CompEx training provider internationally is a great accolade. Our clients can expect the same responsiveness and problem-solving approach that are the staples of our business but will now also benefit from new locations with globally recognized, structured training.”

Huw Bement, director at CompEx added: “This new EUTEX training center is a great addition to our existing network. The company’s track record and ability to adapt to client requirements in multiple locations is a testament to its ongoing commitment to supporting safe operation in hazardous areas.”

Providing a range of online hazardous area training and on-site training options to a variety of electrical personnel, from technicians to engineers and asset managers, EUTEX offers not only industry-leading, technical expertise but a wealth of knowledge on the best methods and procedures used to train and assess the industrial sector.

The company formed from the merger of EUTEX International and ATEC earlier this year to the leading electrical supplier of hazardous area products and services around the globe.
