During HAZOP and Reliability Engineering studies facilitation, we observed that some participants experience difficulties in reading P&IDs. This therefore affects their ability to contribute more meaningfully to the studies and slows down the process as the facilitator will end up coaching participants. To overcome this barrier, we have developed a new five-day course to interpret P&IDs / Mechanical Flow Diagrams, Block Flow Diagram (BFD), Process Flow Diagrams (PFD) and more. This includes the understanding of symbols, flows and other aspects of process and related industry standard drawings, with real-life examples.

This training course is unique and is designed to teach participants not only on understanding engineering drawings and diagrams, but also basic process aspects and elements.

The target audience is oil & gas, chemical or other process industry Engineers and Risk Professionals, Operators, Supervisors and HAZOP participants, who can greatly benefit from this hands-on training course. The training course is presented by facilitators with extensive, practical experience.

 

The training course covers:

  • Introduction to Engineering
    • The application of scientific principles
    • Intended function
    • Design and development
