New BGA Course: ATEX/DSEAR/Non-Electrical Equipment Assessment

Date: 1st March 2023 - 09:30 - 16:30

Location: TEAMS

Tutor: Louise Brearley

Fee: £100

Post Covid and Brexit it is perhaps more important than ever to ensure you are up to speed with ATEX Certification.

We have collaborated with SGS Baseefa to create a bespoke ATEX course for BGA Members. The course is online and as we are using an external provider there is a fee which the BGA are subsidising, the whole day is only £100 per delegate for BGA Members.
