ATEX (in-company) training

ATEX is a broad concept. In companies that deal with flammable substances/gases that may pose an explosion (hazard), all those involved must take ATEX into account. The owner of the company, project leaders/managers, engineers, operators to the (maintenance) mechanic and cleaner must take ATEX into account.

Possible hazardous areas (ATEX zones) within the company should be known. An Explosion Protection Document (EVD for short) must be in place. The installation must be explosion-proof within the established ATEX zones. For non-regular (maintenance) work, additional work procedures must often be followed. Important here is that the knowledge is present at the relevant function.

Many companies have limited exposure to flammable substances/gases that can form explosive atmospheres. Yet companies are legally expected to have this specific knowledge.


The aim of an ATEX (in-company) training course is to train employees in such a way that they have mastered the knowledge required for their job in relation to ATEX. Here, the training is tailored to the company’s situation, geared to the specific knowledge and requirements of each position.

Training will be specifically tailored to the company, the various functions and disciplines.

The training will be tailored to the situation prevailing at the company, tailored to the specific knowledge and needs of each function.

Description of training

In addition to the above-mentioned topics, we will look at what functions are present and what additional knowledge regarding ATEX is required for this.

The duration of the training depends on the required level of knowledge and can vary between 1 and 10 days. Our recommendation is for groups to be no larger than 15 people. The ATEX training can be provided at your location or in EFPC’s classroom. During the training there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions and practice with the material.


Start training & exam

The training will be given on request and can be concluded with a written exam to be taken by us. For this, Table 3 of document IECEx OD 503 – Edition 4.0, will be used as a guide.
