Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge Commissioning & Start-Up with API RP 1FSC Foundation Training course will show you how to be successful in the defining phase of a project.

Did you know that from the perspective of an investor, it is the Commissioning & Start-Up (CSU) phase that defines the project as a success or failure?

When a project has been fully commissioned and started-up, it is likely the project will also be a financial success, with investors receiving their expected returns.

When a project has not been fully commissioned and started-up, it is highly unlikely the project could ever be a financial success. From an investor’s perspective, the project is a disaster.

Why don’t more people with many years of project experience already know this?

It could be because the training and education to build essential skills and knowledge has not been there, and for many Operators and Contractors, still doesn’t exist … until now.

This PetroKnowledge training course answers crucially important questions and will highlight:

Organisational Impact

Commissioning & Start-Up is not well understood, other than by those that are practitioners, however the successful outcome of your project is entirely dependent on it being performed well.   The training provided in this PetroKnowledge course is unique and will equip your employees with the essential skills they will need to actively participate in Commissioning & Start-Up (CSU) or knowledgeably support the process as a stakeholder.

Value Proposition to Employers

This PetroKnowledge training course will cost a negligible amount in real terms, while creating the very real possibility of saving huge sums for your company, from now to the end of the project, and on successive projects.

At the same time, and at the very least, key stakeholders and project team members will learn absolutely essential skills in formal training for the first time, so as a minimum, peoples’ communication and effectiveness will be massively enhanced, producing a significant dollar saving for efficiency.  Then there is the added bonus that I invite those attending to discuss real events and situations in constructive dialogue that always leads to problem solving or resolving important issues.   These are huge, real benefits that all other companies sending their employees to this course have experienced, and you should expect the same.
