Postponed AEMT Ex Training course dates for 2020
As with many organisations, the AEMT took the action of postponing all of 2020’s Ex training courses until later in the year, when it is hoped the worst of the Coronavirus will be over. While it is still uncertain whether classroom placed learning will take place, online assessments could be made available so that engineers can still be certified to have been assessed by the AEMT to be able to repair Ex equipment to standard.

Updated dates for this year’s Ex Training courses have now been released. The course focuses on training electrical and mechanical technicians who service and repair motors, gearboxes, pumps and ancillary equipment from hazardous zoned areas. They are designed to ensure compliant and certified repairs are carried out. Further topics covered as part of the course include legal requirements, risk assessments along with health and safety considerations.

Courses are not just relevant to newcomers. Individuals must take a refresher course every three years to ensure companies remain compliant. The training course forms the basis of British and European BS EN 60079-19 and International IEC60079-19 standard for the repair, overhaul and reclamation of hazardous area equipment. 

For those whose certificates expire this year, they are requested to book onto an upcoming course as soon as possible to secure an extension on their certificates. 

Ex Training courses take place in England, Scotland, Bahrain, Dubai, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand throughout 2020. A number of the training locations are yet to be confirmed, so attendees are encouraged to check the AEMT Ex Training calendar for the latest details.

Over the past 30-plus years, we have been made more aware of the impact of global warming and the consequences it has on our everyday lives. Corporations and individuals alike have a responsibility to reduce waste and strive to be more efficient with the resources we use. Improving the efficiency of electrical equipment reduces the demand on generation plants, allowing renewable sources to produce a greater proportion of the overall requirement. Thomas Marks, AEMT Secretary, looks at how the service and repair sector can help operators of electrical equipment to reduce running costs and their environmental impact at the same time.

Operating equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres comes with a certain amount of responsibility, not least to use correctly designed components that have the features necessary for the environment. When maintenance and repairs are required, it is important that operators understand what is expected of them to ensure continued safety and reliability. Karl Metcalfe, Technical Support for the AEMT, looks at the knowledge and responsibilities that are expected when it comes to managing electric motors in zoned areas.
