Knowledge+Experience = Competence

The above formula is generally considered to be an accurate reflection of what is required for an individual to be deemed ‘competent.’ The need for competent staff is prevalent in both hazardous locations and environmental monitoring industries, and in fact forms the basis of many industry codes of practice and plant safety procedures.

CSA Group believes that competent staff is just as necessary as compliant product and site processes, which is why we have developed a a range of personnel certifications schemes that allow individuals to obtain a ‘visible’ mark of competence.

We lead the way in providing accredited and recognised personnel certification services, being the world-leader for the IECEx Certification of Personnel Competence Scheme, and the sole partner to the Environment Agency for the MCERTS Stack Emission Monitoring Scheme.
