BASIC INSTRUMENTATION FOR NON-INSTRUMENT PERSONNEL COURSE

BASIC INSTRUMENTATION FOR NON-INSTRUMENT PERSONNEL COURSE

Course Description

DURATION

21 hours (Three (3) days)

 

TARGET GROUP 

Instrumentation and Control Engineers and Technicians, Plant Operators, Operation Engineers, Process and Utility Supervisors, and Technical Supervisory personnel involved in Industrial Process Measurement and Control. No specific prerequisite training or experience required for registration.

 

TARGETED INDUSTRY/INDUSTRIES

Oil and gas industries, power plant, petrochemical plant, food industries, pump oil plant and almost all plant need instrument to sense, to measure, to record, to control and some other reason like safety and soon. All this need well understanding about instrumentation.

 

CERTIFICATION

This course can be certified for continuing professional development program, for example program by board engineers Malaysia, TVET, Malaysian Skill Certificate and can be considered for instrument competency certificate.

 

COURSE OVERVIEW

The quality or performance of a plant control and plant safety is dependent on the quality of measurement and final control elements. The program was design for five days and will covers the working knowledge of basic instrumentation, basic control valve, fundamental of process control, plant safety , equipment operation , selection and installation  and  also their effect on  process control. The participants will be exposed on how to control the processes using process simulator.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

The objective of the course is p to provide more understanding about instrumentation to the instrument engineers, process engineers, instrument tech and others plant personnel. By understanding all aspect about instrumentation, measurement, control, safety, trending and other thing about plant will be comprehensive.

 

COURSE OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, the participants should be able to:

  • Interpret basic Industrial instrumentation.
  • Read and locate PFD, P&ID, and loop drawing.
  • Interpret measurement terminology
  • Identify the instrumentation used in process control.
  • Compare the methods and devices used in temperature, pressure, level, flow measurement
  • Select which types of final control elements used in process control.
  • Understand the operational of Control Valves.
  • Understand the Process measurement and their effect on stability system.
