In-Person Training consists of public classes conducted by one of our subject matter experts at one of our designated locations in one or more consecutive days.
This course focuses on engineering drawings typically used in the chemical and process industries by engineers and technologists in the design phase and by operations and maintenance staff once facilities are up and running. It is suitable for employees, managers, officers of corporations and anyone else with an interest in how these drawings should be created, maintained and used in assessing emergency situations and regulatory compliance issues.
- Facilities, Operations and Maintenance Professionals
- Engineers In Training (EITs)
- I & C, Mechanical Engineers and Technologists
- Professionals responsible for Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP / Safeguarding studies.
- Health & Safety / HSE Professionals
- Accurate drawings and the ability to read and understand these drawings are a requirement for the analysis of emergency situations and the assessment of safety, environmental, and regulatory compliance issues such as Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP studies.
- This training course will show how facilities relate to the drawings so that participants can focus on improvements.
- It will also provide engineers dealing with Management of Change the ability to speak the same language as the operators of the facilities.
- It will form the foundation for base level learning and will provide consistent and improved communications between staff.
- It will provide improvement in quality and consistency, which will enhance the other processes that rely on the P&ID drawings.
Our courses and workshops are experiential, interactive and provide participants with practical knowledge and tools that can be immediately applied back at work.
