Further Information - Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Training

Description

Who is the course for?

This eLearning course is aimed at individuals working in the chemical industry who require an understanding of heat transfer processes. It is particularly suited to those who are new to the industry and do not have a background in chemistry.

Is previous experience required?

It is expected that as a participant in this course you will have received formal training in your designated role and that you hold suitable qualifications.

How will the course benefit me?

Heat transfer is one of the most common unit operations within the chemical industry. This course will provide a comprehensive overview of heat transfer operations and the systems used for transporting and controlling fluid flow.

The knowledge gained in this course will help you understand the need to follow procedures and will enable you to carry out heat transfer operations in a safe manner. You will learn about the various health and safety hazards involved in such operations and how these can be controlled.

How will the course benefit my company?

By ensuring that you are fully aware of the potential hazards involved in heat transfer and fluid transfer operations, you contribute to the safety of the asset, your fellow workers and yourself. A reduction in incidents means a safer working environment for everyone.

What standards are referenced in the course?

This course does not refer to specific legislation or laws but is written to current HSE guidelines, industry best practice and standard operating procedures.

Is there an assessment?

Once you have completed the course, you will be asked a series of questions to check your knowledge and understanding. These are based on the learning objectives for the course and have a pass mark of 80%.
