Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

This Petroknowledge Commissioning & Start-Up with API RP 1FSC Foundation Online training seminar 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 online 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 online training seminar answers crucially important questions and will highlight:

  • What is Commissioning?
  • What is Systems Completion?
  • When and how should Construction transition from Areas to Systems?
  • How should I perform as a Commissioning & Start-Up (CSU) team member or stakeholder?
  • What does project Success or project Failure look like?
  • What are the Critical Success Factors for Commissioning & Start-Up?
