New range of IECEx courses tailor-made for personnel working in explosive atmospheres

TÜV Rheinland Australia Pty has been recognised as an official provider of training for IECEx certification relating to personnel working in explosive atmospheres. Plans to achieve full IECEx accreditation are already underway.


As the Australian arm of the global leader in independent technical services, the organization is now the country’s newest provider of courses that conform strictly to internationally respected IECEx rules and operational documents. 

The courses are tailor-made for personnel working in explosive atmospheres in almost any capacity. That includes managers, visitors, designers of plants, classification service providers, hands-on installers, as well as people who test, maintain, repair, or inspect plants – and even those who conduct formal audits.

Successful participants can receive IECEx Personnel Certification after recognition of their experience and knowledge, and sitting an examination administered and graded by TUV Rheinland Australia experts.

 “Explosive atmospheres represent one of the most unforgiving environments in any industrial setting, and a mistake can result in disaster. Training to internationally recognised rules, such as IECEx, is one of the most important investments that any company can make in protecting its personnel and plant equipment,” said Ajay Maira, Hazardous Area Manager - Industrial Services at TÜV Rheinland Australia Pty Ltd.

Parties in need of training will find TÜV Rheinland Australia listed as the second entry in the table of Recognised Training Providers on the IECEx web page http://www.iecex.com/rtp.htm.

“TÜV Rheinland has been developing safe and sustainable solutions to tackle the challenges arising from the interaction between man, the environment and technology for nearly one and a half centuries. These new IECEx courses are the latest development in a philosophy of serving customers, achieving success and constantly enhancing our appeal to customers, partners and staff,” said Parveen Akther, Managing Director of TÜV Rheinland Australia.
