AEMT - Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades

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.

As the use of premium efficiency (IE3) motors has increased, due in part to strengthened regulation, the question of maintaining motor efficiency after a rewind process has reappeared. The most recent study, conducted in 2019, by AEMT and EASA has again used independent testing facilities and revealed that even these higher efficiency units are unaffected by a repair using good practice procedures. Karl Metcalfe, Technical Support at AEMT, looks at the latest report and the procedures that were used to support these findings.
