Course Overview

Mechanical equipment is extremely important, and proper maintenance of these plays a critical role in determining organisational success. If not maintained well, they can cause serious injuries, including open wounds, amputations and fractures. Pressure vessels, pumps, fans, blowers and compressors are called mechanical equipment. A pressure vessel handles fluids at a pressure not equal to the ambient temperature. A pump moves fluids through mechanical action. Furthermore, fans, blowers and compressors involve movement of gas through different mechanisms. Fans move huge amounts of gas with a low increase in pressure, blowers move gases with a moderate increase in pressure and compressors raise gases to a higher level of pressure.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a detailed understanding of mechanical equipment. Through this course, you will gain adequate knowledge and experience to work with any or all mechanical equipment when required in any function or role. Thus, the knowledge and information gained through this course will make you capable of handling any role or responsibility related to mechanical equipment. This will invite greater and better opportunities for career growth and progression.

Course Objectives

The main objective of this training program is to empower professionals with—

  • detailed understanding and knowledge of mechanical equipment
  • adequate information, confidence and experience to handle any issue or problem related to mechanical equipment during operations
  • the ability to upskill to successfully oversee end-to-end seamless operations at plants
  • greater understanding of inspection schedules and activities and maintenance requirements to be able to contribute to better and more efficient mechanical equipment and lesser repair costs
  • the required experience and knowledge to train other professionals on best practices of handling mechanical equipment, to ensure that the life of equipment or safety of employees is not compromised
  • the skill and experience to foresee a challenge about the safety of mechanical equipment and take timely action to avoid hazards and organisational losses
  • the required understanding and knowledge of international standards for safety and operational adherence
  • the understanding and awareness to choose the right equipment design as per the desired operations, thereby contributing to better operations and organisational growth
  • the overall skill set and capabilities to work in dynamic roles requiring handling or management of mechanical equipment of any type

Training Methodology

Training courses at Zoe Talent Solutions are designed with scope for customisation, wherever necessary. Before each training, the content is closely reviewed and changes are made, if necessary, to suit the relevant audience. Lectures are conducted by trained, experienced professionals from relevant domains. To encourage trainee participation, the trainer assigns group projects and tasks. Role-plays and case study discussions encourage trainees to interact with each other.

The above unique, effective approach to training has been invented by Zoe Talent Solutions and is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
