Our RockJack Capsule Training (P2)
The capsules are designated U.N. 0432 Articles pyrotechnic for technical purposes, hazard class 1.4s, under the pyrotechnic articles safety regulations certain pyrotechnic articles can only be sold to persons over the age of 18 with specialist knowledge, this status is known as P2 ( per EU directive 2013/29/EU ) however, BS5607** states that the minimum age for a shot-firer should be 21 years. Consequently, NONEX will only provide training to personnel of 21 years or over. We as the manufacturer provide this training specific to our product and it is usually carried out on your rock/concrete at your location.
For quarry use this is typically achieved in one 8 hour session with a maximum of 4 students to each course. The course is mainly hands on doing the work and learning a set procedure. At the end of the day each student carries out the full procedure on his own under the observation of a NONEX instructor, and if done in a safe and confident manner, and showing a complete understanding of technique/procedure, and all safety aspects, he is deemed to be competent and awarded a certificate. For construction/demolition site use, the training is the same but typically can take 2 to 3 days because of HSE constraints on construction or demolition sites. The 2nd/3rd day is usually carrying out work on your projects under a NONEX instructors supervision.
