Who is the course for?
This course is aimed at individuals who are preparing to take the ECITB Small Bore Tubing knowledge test. The course covers work with twin ferrule mechanical grip fittings.
Is previous experience required?
It is expected that as a participant in this course, you will have received formal training in working with small bore tubing and fittings, and that you hold suitable qualifications. Completion of this course alone does not qualify you to the ECITB standard.
How will the course benefit me?
Incorrectly made up small bore tubing assemblies are the second-largest single source of hydrocarbon releases. This course will give you an understanding of how twin ferrule mechanical grips fittings are assembled, disassembled and reassembled correctly to prevent leaks.
The knowledge gained in this course will help you understand how to work with small bore tubing assemblies in their entirety; from P&IDs to tubing and support systems. It will identify potential problems with small bore tubing assemblies and enable you to mitigate these problems by following the correct procedures.
How will the course benefit my company?
By ensuring that fittings and assemblies are made up correctly, you can help to minimise hydrocarbon releases, leading to a reduced environmental impact and greater safety for the asset and all workers.
What standards are referenced in the course?
This course is aligned with the knowledge sections of ECITB SBT Training Standards 02, 03, 04, 05 and 06, and has been approved by ECITB.
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%. Note that passing the assessment does not mean that you are certified to the ECITB standard, but are ready to take the knowledge test and practical course.
