If you’re a JIB member looking for CompEx certification for your employees, you can gain a 10% discount on the course cost from the network of licensed CompEx centres.
The CompEx Certification Scheme, owned and operated by JT Limited, part of the JTL Group, provides validation of core competency and certification of personnel who work in explosive atmospheres.
Under the latest JIB Industrial Agreement (see below for full wording), operatives directly-employed by JIB members are entitled to have their CompEx initial training course and associated refresher/renewal costs paid for by their employer, providing the operative is working for the employer at the time of renewal.
Thanks to a partnership between the JIB and the JTL Group, the 10% course cost discount can be agreed directly with almost all of the CompEx centres across the UK by contacting the centre direct - view full details on CompEx centres and locations.
Official wording from the JIB Industrial Determination:
Operatives who are in employment on a directly-employed basis from and including Monday 2nd January 2017 will have their CompEx initial training course and renewal costs paid for by their employer, provided that the operative is working for the employer at the time of renewal. This is subject to the employer deeming the holding of a CompEx qualification as a specific requirement of the operative’s role.
For operatives already holding a CompEx qualification on this date there is no obligation for the employer to pay the renewal costs upon expiry of the existing CompEx qualification, unless the employer deems it to be a specific requirement of the operative’s role.
