The AEMT (Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades) has produced a pair of complementary videos that explain the courses they run for those involved with equipment that operates in potentially explosive atmospheres. They provide information on who should attend the courses and what they cover in terms of theoretical and practical sessions.

Thomas Marks, Secretary of the AEMT explains that the videos should assist potential attendees to decide which courses are right for them. “We know that engineers and technicians are busy people who have to make the most of any time away from their normal place of work. By checking the videos on our website ( they can be sure of what they will learn from each course.”

The first video explains who the courses are aimed at. In fact, they are quite wide ranging and so will be valuable to anyone who is handling, installing and maintaining Ex equipment as well as to managers whose responsibilities include the use and support of such equipment. This will include personnel from service centres that handle Ex motors, pumps, gearboxes etc; including operatives, technicians and engineers, as well as supervisors and managers who need to understand the requirements being addressed by their technical colleagues.

By covering the theories involved in Ex engineering, delegates to Module 1 courses will become certain of the various legislative and practical requirements and can make sure their company procedures meet the appropriate national and international standards. Importantly it will enable them to review their record keeping, so that full traceability is created. This module will help them build an understanding of the different directives, standards and regulations that apply to their work.

Module 2 is a hands-on session where delegates get to see and work with Ex equipment, check different flame paths and practise the various calculations related to Ex engineering. “Importantly, we have delegates fill in several repair reports” says Thomas. “This is good practise and helps highlight the fact that these are important legal documents.

On completing the assessments in Module 2, delegates will have passed the course on Ex equipment repair. After 3 years, due to the requirements of the repair standard, delegates are required to return to refresh their knowledge. Our module 3 refresher course (or 2R for courses outside the UK) is aimed at these individuals.

About the AEMT

The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) was founded in 1945. It is an International Association representing leading companies in the electrical and mechanical service and repair industry. Members manufacture, distribute, install, service, maintain, and repair, electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. In addition to motor and pump service facilities, most members operate mechanical engineering workshops for metal fabrication and the repair and refurbishment of worn components. Others include panel building facilities and some carry out repairs to industrial electronic equipment. Associate Members are companies that supply products and services to Members.

Proceeding the publication of AEMT's and BEAMA's jointly produced first code of practice for The Repair and Overhaul of Electrical Equipment for use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres, which was adopted as the initial IEC 60079-19 international standard. The association has put together a selection of Training modules covering the Theory and Practical nature to ATEX and IECEx equipment repair. The modules are delivered as accredited training courses by expert teams across the globe.
