"I feel  I learned a lot of new concepts.
 I would recommend this training."

  

"The extensive field experience of the instructor really impressed me. Great teacher.
Very knowledgeable."

   
The course fee includes registration, lunch and refreshments, and course materials.
Price is exclusive of applicable taxes. Courses held in the U.S are billed in U.S. dollars. 

BUILDING A SOLID FOUNDATION

Safety issues, design/installation defects and mal-operation all have a financial impact that can be greatly
reduced by properly training employees who have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of P&ID
interpretation.

BENEFITS OF PIPING AND INSTRUMENTATION DIAGRAMS (P&ID) PROGRAM

  • This course will provide employees with the ability to understand how the facilities relate to the drawings so that they can focus on improvements.
  • 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 course 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.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

The course is comprised of combined classroom instruction and workshop exercises. The instructor focuses on critical documentation, such as P&ID, PFD, Plot Plan, Electrical Area Classification, Piping Drawing, Isometric Drawing, Line List, Tie-In List and Shutdown Keys essential for safe day to day operation of facilities. Accurate drawings are a requirement for the analysis of emergency situations and the assessment of safety, environmental and regulatory compliance issues. They are also prerequisites for Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP studies. A workshop helps demonstrate the keys to reading and interpreting various drawings.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course introduces the various drawings typically used in the chemical and process industry by engineers and technologists in the design phase, and operations and maintenance staff once facilities are built and running. Anyone, including employees, managers, and officers of corporations with an interest in increasing their awareness of how these common engineering drawings should be created, maintained and used in emergency situations in the assessment of safety, environmental and regulatory compliance issues are welcome to attend.

  • 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 Professional
