Course Description

This course focuses on engineering drawings typically used in the chemical and process industries by engineers and technologists in the design phase and by operations and maintenance staff once facilities are up and running. 

This 5 day training course will show how facilities relate to the drawings so that participants can focus on improvements and effectively assess emergency situations and evaluate safety, environmental and regulatory compliance issues, accurate drawings and the ability to interpret them are crucial and provide improvement in quality and consistency which will enhance the other processes that rely on the P&IDs and other process control drawings. 

This combination of classroom instruction and workshop training exercises focuses on critical documentation essential to the safe day-to-day operation of facilities (e.g., P&ID, PFD, Plot Plan, Area Classification, Piping Drawing, Isometric Drawing, Line List, Tie-In List and Shutdown Keys).. 

Accurate drawings and the ability to read and understand these drawings are a requirement for the analysis of emergency situations and the assessment of safety, environmental and regulatory compliance issues such as Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP studies. 

It will also provide engineers dealing with Management of Change the ability to speak the same language as the operators of the facilities. It will form the foundation for base level learning and will provide consistent and improved communications between staff.

Course Objectives

Identifying piping and determining information about a pipeline 

Recognizing the different types of lines including pneumatic, hydraulic, electric, and signal lines

Reading P&ID to identify instrumentation, common equipment, pipe fittings, and symbols, etc.

Defining how the instruments in control loops are named and functioning on a P&ID

Conveying process information in adequate detail and examining what should and shouldn’t be on a P&ID

Understanding the revision block mentioned in a P&ID, ready for construction and as built

Tracing system flow paths with the help of piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID)

Developing, and reviewing P&ID — the most crucial document for any manufacturing project
