The ATEC Team


The ATEC Training Academy have recently been appointed as the Training & Competency Assessment provider for Electrical Personnel constructing a major FPSO project.

The VLCC is being converted at in Singapore and, is expected to arrive in Guyana in late 2019 in preparation for first oil.

The Challenge

Atec had to implement a robust ‘Ex’ Competency program following the requirements of IEC 60079 - Explosive atmospheres - Part 14: Electrical installations design, selection and erection

This standard contains specific requirements for the design, selection, erection and initial inspection of electrical installations in, or associated with, potentially explosive atmospheres

ATEC delivered a program to cover the personal competencies required.

Our Approach

On successful completion candidates will understand:

  • General Principles of Explosion Protection
  • General Principles of Protection Types and Marking
  • Aspects of Equipment Design that affect the protection concept
  • Content of Certificates and Relevant Parts of IEC 60079-14 & IEC 60079-14
  • The Importance of Permit to Work Systems and Safe Isolation

And be Familiar with the Techniques for Selection and Erection of ‘Ex’ Equipment


This training involves the CompEx Scheme, which is the recognised global scheme for the protection of workers and assets in both offshore and onshore activities. The scheme assesses the competency of personnel who are working in environments with the potential risk of explosive atmospheres -The CompEx Certification Body is accredited by UKAS to ISO/IEC 17024 : 2012.

Our team understand that in a project, from vendors to manufacturers to clients and end-users, there are many fast moving parts and expectations from all different facets of the project. Our philosophy is to ensure that the project is managed with the utmost communication and open approach.
