Goal

After completion of the training, the participant should have updated his theoretical knowledge about requirements for intrinsically safe equipment and installations with intrinsically safe circuits in explosive hazardous areas.

The course provides a general rehearsal of essential topics from the basic education, and a review of professional changes that have been carried out in the field of study in recent years. Participants should also know which regulations and standards apply to intrinsically safe circuits, and the latest changes in these.

Target group

Electro and instrument tehnicians and engineers and other personnel, who works with intrinsically safe equipment and installations with intrinsically safe circuits in explosive hazardous areas, and needs an update of their competency according to current regulations.

Subjects covered in the course

  • The Intrinsic safety function
  • Zenerbarriers and Isolators - EN 60079-11
  • Intrinsically safe electrical systems - EN 60079-25
  • Documentation of intrinsically safe circuits
  • Installation requirements for Exi - EN 60079-14 (NEK420), IEC 61892-7 and NORSOK
  • Current regulations and standards
  • Requirement changes in regulations and standards

Regulations

According to guidelines from Norwegain Oil and Gas (059) and the NFEA Ex-KOMP:2021 guidelines for training, the competence should be updated at least every five years.

Competence

This course requires that you have completed an extensive Exi basic training program earlier, and it is recommended that it is maximum 5 years since such training or refresher course was last completed. It is also a requirement that you have updated basic Ex knowledge, and it is therefore recommended that you attend Ex basic training in combination with this course.
