Elearning-training.com Launch an Interactive Pressure Testing Training Course

Share Article

A new pressure testing training course including strength test and tightness test has been launched by Star Learning Solutions, the training division of Star Refrigeration. The package is divided in two independent elements: an online theory course on Pressure Testing and a 1 day pressure test practical training and assessment session.

The Pressure testing training course covers pneumatic testing of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning systems with inert gases.

The pressure testing training package including strength test and tightness test comprises two stand alone elements which can be undertaken independently or in conjunction: a theory online course (certified for CPD) and a practical training and assessment day at any of elearning-training.com's 9 UK centers in Aberdeen, Bristol, Derby, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Oxford.

The training in pressure testing covers pneumatic testing of refrigeration and air conditioning systems with inert gases. The online theory training on pressure testing will be followed separately by a question paper. Additional practical training and assessment must be completed before anyone can pressure test. When successful engineers will be awarded with a Diploma accredited by CIBSE for Continuing Professional Development and Star Refrigeration confirming course completion.

The course materials and information in Pressure testing are accessible via http://www.elearning-training.com, an industry award winning online training platform which offers a modern alternative to traditional methods of training. It delivers theoretical underpinning knowledge on demand by allowing students to access learning material at any time and from any place, simply by logging onto the website with a user name and a password. In addition, candidates can also attend 1 day practical training sessions at any of their 9 centers throughout the UK.

Knowledge Assessment:

The candidate will gain the knowledge required by studying the pressure test online theory course. A 90% pass mark will be required before a candidate can undertake a practical assessment, the course covers:
relevant standard specifications; allowable test pressures: what to look for, identification of hazards, technical appraisals, written schemes of examination , PRV settings, vessel & pipe condition etc.
Gases: OFN.
HSE GS4 Safety in pressure testing.
Generic Risk Assessment for pressure testing.
Method statements for Strength and Pressure testing.
Documentation, certification etc.

The practical training and assessment involves:
•The safe use of equipment, to include: hoses, fittings, relief valves, regulators, manifold etc.
•Compliance to all method statements and risk assessments whilst carrying out strength and tightness testing on the rig or system and correct completion of all necessary     paperwork.
•Knowledge of leak repair procedures on a system whilst carrying out a strength and tightness test, this will include Safe Venting of OFN.
•Knowledge of pressure testing by answering oral questions immediately prior to commencement of any pressure test. A 100% pass mark must be achieved before pressure test can commence.
•Answering written questions 100% correctly during the assessment.

A video preview of what is involve in the pressure testing training online course is available at http://www.elearning-training.com/C000206-Pressuretestingtrainingcourse.aspx
