Course Overview

The role of engineers is crucial because they help machines run smoothly by keeping them in working order, and also help to keep workers’ lives safe. Therefore, this Flange Integrity Course is essential to understand the basics of how to operate machinery safely. A flange is a protrusive rim, collar, or ring on an object such as a column, beam, or pipe that provides added strength for the addition of another object. This course provides participants with the necessary foundation and practical skills to make and break flanged joints with manual bolt-up methods. Participants will also become proficient in safeguarding the reliability of flanges on pipework and vessels.

How can this “Flange Integrity Course” course contribute to your career? One of the key requirements in any job description today for engineers is to be aware of and trained in Public Safety and Security. To succeed in your current role or advance to the next stage in your career, you need to know the relevant equipment, strategies, policies, and procedures to promote effective security operations and ensure protection and maintenance of the equipment, premises, and people.

This Zoe training course will empower you with an introduction to flanged joints, types of flanges, materials, sizes, and temperature rating so that you can carry out your tasks with confidence and accuracy.
