Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Structural engineers are encountering many problems due to the hot climate and the other environmental conditions. Quality control in construction of the reinforced concrete structure is a complete function which involves management, statistics and engineering.

This training course case study and practical sessions will be for oil and gas projects as most projects are time driven and need a high quality to maintain the sustainable facilities along the production filed life.

In a hot climate, it needs more precaution in concrete industry and on the construction of the building to match with the requirement to this weather. All the examples and real case studies are for oil and gas projects.

In this training course, the focus is on using the statistics as a tool to control all the activities of the construction projects, especially the concrete product. The quality control of the concrete is illustrated in scope of the different codes and specifications. This training course will deliver a state-of-art methodology to control the concrete quality, introduces ways to control the specification recommendations in detail, and all the new modern the techniques and methodology used in concrete industry to enhance the concrete quality. The course will cover the main Quality Control concept for Shell specifications and other international oil and gas companies.

This training course will feature:

  • Different codes and standards for Quality Control
  • Quality control test (video presentation)
  • Effects of quality in project sustainability
  • Main skills and required knowledge for QC On Site
  • QC procedure for concrete in a hot climate
  • QC for steel structure activities

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will:

  • Familiarise all quality management techniques and procedures
  • Learn available non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structure projects
  • Understand the practical tools to control the concrete and the whole project that includes field-testing and the required laboratory facilities
  • Familiarise various techniques for evaluating the structures under construction
  • Learn modern field measurements such as concrete strength
  • Familiarise with all quality control techniques in hot climate
