ATEC Now Offers CompEx Statement of Partial Assessment (SoPA)
The CompEx SoPA is a new alternative for CompEx certificate holders to maintain their certification active while they are unable to attend a Training Center for recertification.
As a result of the still ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, CompEx certificate holders have been unable to renew their CompEx certification at a CompEx Training Centre. SoPA is a new certification solution by the CompEx Partial Assessment Programme that provides an employer with assurance that an individual has maintained a level of core knowledge associated with safety working in explosive atmospheres.
SoPA can be issue only to full CompEx course (Ex01 – Ex04) and Refresher (Ex01R – Ex04R)
Candidates can only apply for the Partial Assessment Programme through ATEC only if they fall into any of the below reasons:
- Government, local authorities, or the applicant’s employer have imposed travel restrictions, self-isolation (“lockdown”), have cancelled all events or have closed all education establishments.
- Training centers are closed and have canceled courses due to Covid-19.
- The applicant’s previous travel history prevents them from attending a CompEx training center.
