The Requirement for Competent Craftsmen Engineers and Authorised Persons
Under the Health & Safety at Work Act we have a duty of care to have competent workers.
The purpose of this Training Course and Registration Scheme is to ensure that all personnel repairing and overhauling Explosive Atmosphere Equipment are competent. What is competency?
Skill | Knowledge | Attitude | Training | Experience
It is a requirement for an Authorised Person to take responsibility for repair processes on Explosive Atmosphere Equipment and a requirement of Demonstrated Competencies.
EASA in association with the recognised body sets the standards of knowledge and experience for craftsmen and authorised persons though a Technical Sub-Committee, which acts as the industry steering group. The course syllabus, experience requirements and assessment criteria are all detailed within the scheme rules and made available to all requiring training and assessment.
