Technical Training for the Process Industries

Improving personnel’s skills and knowledge in order to excel and become innovative for the future of their careers!

Since 1989, our team has succeeded in delivering technical training courses to the process industries, leveraging our expertise to meet diverse organisational training needs. Our specialised training programs cover a wide range of topics, including Centrifugal Compressor Training, Reciprocating Compressor Training, Screw Compressor Training, Energy Transition Training, Critical Thinking, Process Problem Solving and Troubleshooting in Process Plants Training and FPSO Operations Training.

We have developed a range of dynamic simulation models that are the focal point of our training courses, such as LNG Operations Training, Distillation Training, and Anti-Surge Control Training. These advanced simulation models are designed based on real-life systems that personnel encounter daily. In our training programs, delegates are given opportunities to solve real-time problems using these simulations, including Gas Turbines Operations Training and Compressor Station Operations Training. Simulations are a proven tool to enhance learning and create a positive environment that encourages experimentation and accepts mistakes, which are essential parts of the learning process. Delegates can experiment and understand how equipment operates without real-world consequences, with courses such as Oil and Gas Process Training, Non-technical Oil and Gas Process Training, and Non-technical FPSO Operations Training.

Our courses, including Control Loop Tuning Training, Glycol Dehydration Training, and Control Room Operator Training, consist of short lectures, simulation model exercises, videos, group discussions, and case studies. These varied learning experiences, also found in Amine Process Training and Gas Pipelines Operations Training, promote higher learning outcomes and ensure comprehensive technical training.
