Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course? 

This online training course will enable Technical personnel to familiarise not only with sound engineering principles, but also with other engineering techniques including inspection; monitoring and condition evaluation. This intensive online training course is designed to allow individuals working in fields such as mechanical, process and petrochemical engineering, and other related fields, an opportunity to update their skills and improve their basic knowledge of modern Mechanical Engineering skills.

Further, this online training course covers a wide breadth of subjects and concepts and of specific importance are material properties, design, static & rotating equipment design, inspection and repair as well as a sound understanding of maintenance strategies and condition monitoring.

This PetroKnowledge online training course will feature:

  • Materials selection, testing and failure
  • Corrosion principles and protection
  • Static equipment including pipes and valves
  • Rotating equipment including pumps and compressors
  • Condition monitoring, inspection & NDT (Non-Destructive Testing)

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?  

Mechanical engineering is at the centre of the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. The mechanical engineer is, in particular, interested in safe containment and movement of solids, liquids and gases. Hence, this course focuses on the central areas of mechanical engineering and guides the delegates in developing both fundamental and practical understandings of key issues. Workshop examples will be drawn from the oil and gas mechanical equipment.

By the end of this online training course, you will learn to:

  • Understand Failure Mechanisms & Fitness for Service associated with engineering materials
  • Have a sound understanding of corrosion mechanisms and protection against corrosion
  • Develop their knowledge of static equipment related to piping systems and valves
  • Consolidate their understanding of rotating equipment including pumps and compressors
  • Appreciate topics related to condition mentoring, inspection and Non-Destructive Testing
