Description

Who is the course for?

This eLearning course is aimed at individuals working in the chemical industry who require an understanding of distillation 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?

Distillation is a common process in the chemical industry where it is used to separate liquids into their component parts. This course will explain the principles of distillation and the operation of the equipment used in distillation systems.
The knowledge gained in this course will help you understand the safety hazards and precautions associated with distillation, and will enable you to work safely with distillation equipment.

How will the course benefit my company?

By ensuring that you are aware of the precautions to be applied when working with distillation equipment, you contribute to the safety of the asset, your fellow workers and yourself.

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%.
