Alderley launches new CompEx training centre in partnership with ExVeritas

11 July 2022

Leading end-to-end integrated solutions provider Alderley has announced the launch of a new CompEx training centre at its Wickwar headquarters near Bristol in partnership with ExVeritas, the Safety Specialists. The new centre enables Alderley to deliver world-leading training to the internationally recognised CompEx standard applicable to all businesses and industries that have hazardous area operations.

Alderley’s partnership with ExVeritas enables CompEx training courses to be accessed easily in the South, West and Midlands of the UK, and is aimed at electrical and mechanical engineers, technicians and inspectors who install, operate, maintain, inspect and / or design electrical equipment that is used in hazardous areas.

CompEx was originally devised to ensure competency and safety in the highly regulated energy sector. It is now the recognised standard for personnel working across a wide range of industries including pharmaceutical, industrial, agriculture and food production.

The opening of the new training centre coincides with growing demand in the UK for qualified support on strategic projects of national significance such as Hinkley Point C in north Somerset, South West England. Alderley can now deliver training that assesses candidates to the CompEx standard for units ExF, F+, Ex12, Ex14 (with Ex01-04 to be added to the training schedule soon).

CEO of Alderley Colin Elcoate said, “The launch of the Alderley training centre in partnership with ExVeritas provides a platform for competency and safety in highly regulated industries across the South, West and Midlands of the UK. We’re helping to shape the future by sharing our expertise and experience with the next generation of talent who will be critical to ensuring that the UK remains an engineering powerhouse and addresses the world’s most difficult challenges.”

Matt Taylor, Hazardous Area Training Manager at Alderley said: “We are really excited about partnering with ExVeritas, an ATEX/UKCA and IECEx Certification Body and Ex Training specialist, to offer CompEx training at our Wickwar site near Bristol. There is a huge talent pool in the South, West and Midlands who will benefit from our CompEx training and the better access to training and support that this partnership brings.”

Sean Clarke, CEO of ExVeritas stated “We have a long-standing relationship with Alderley and have worked together on many inspection and training campaigns in the past. I’m delighted that we have formalised our relationship to deliver our leading CompEx training through the highly experienced Alderley team and better serve our clients in the South West of England.”
