Description

Reading Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID’s) is an essential skill for Plant Operators in the Oil and Gas sector, Chemical Industries, Water Treatment and Wastewater Collections Operators, Engineers, Technicians, Safety People, College Students and even Plant Management. In fact, it is a fundamental skill in a variety of Operations in many Industries. If you’re one of those mentioned here, or you just want to acquire this knowledge for your role in the Process and Power Plant Industries, this training is for you.

 

Upon completion of this  in depth, holistic Reading P & IDs course you will be able to identify symbols and function labels commonly found on P & ID’s; describe how system components are related; and trace process stream flow and control loop functions. In fact let me ask you:

Do you work in the Process Industries or Power Generation sector and you require a kick ass ability to Read Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P & IDs)? If you are looking to get this skill of How to Read P & IDs Easily from a holistic course that was written by an experienced guy, following ISA, ANSI, and ASME standards, then this training is for you.

Yes, you could be from Plant Operations, Plant Maintenance, Plant Safety, and Engineering, or even from Plant Management, the skill to interpret P & IDs is foundational in your career. Senior Plant Managers agree that it’s the Master Key to working in the Process and Power Generation sectors.

Here is a chance to stop embarrassing yourself if you can’t, or lack confidence in interpreting Piping and Instrumentation Drawings. Simply enrol into this training. It will show you everything you need to know about reading P & IDs in a one stop shop. No matter the complexity of the drawings.

Imagine that you are walking around your workplace (Plant Site) in darkness, and a stranger brings you a flashlight so you can see your surroundings and avoid tripping hazards. This Video Training Course is the flashlight that will provide the light that will enable you to see the plant and avoid costly mistakes that could cost your job.

The ability to Read P & IDs empowers you to be able to discern what’s in the field from your desk in the office. Doesn’t that make your job preparation easier? Imagine how much power and what that will mean for your career when you gain the ability to easily interpret any P & IDs at your workplace despite level of complexity.


Imagine:

1.    Getting access to a Video Training Course that shows you everything A – Z there is to know about How to Read P & IDs closely following ANSI/ISA S5.1, and ASME code. P & IDs are used to train personnel for a reason. If you can read them, it means you can understand the process faster and stay competitive at work. All the hidden secrets your colleagues don't tell you about are staring at you on the P & IDs!

2.    A Video Training Course that uses a simplified approach of breaking a P & ID into 6 Areas and demystifying them one at a time, before bringing them together so you can read complete and real world P & IDs. These are accompanied by a downloadable eBook and a Workbook of Practice Questions and hands on exercises for interpreting real world P & IDs that you will find in the last chapter with BONUSES.

3.    A Video Training Course that will walk you through all sections of a P & ID - From the Legend/Master/Lead Sheets through The Title Block, The Main Diagram, Line Schedules, Equipment descriptions, Notes, down to Zone Numbers. All this leads you into the final step of a kick ass ability to trace process flows that span across multiple P & IDs regardless of complexity.

4.    A Video Training Course that shows you and explains about Instrument Symbols, Valves and their identifications, Control Loops, Interlocks, Management of Change (MOC) process, Primary Flow Elements, Line Designations, Process Piping, Sizes and Identification, Including Insights into how Process Operations are controlled.

5.    By the end of the Video Training Course you should be able to handle any kind of P & IDs no matter their level of complexity. Picture yourself self-reliant with soaring confidence at work, with colleagues and bosses respecting you. Do they even have an option when you can discern the plant using the master key, the laser eyes in the form of an impeccable ability to read the Plant P & IDs? Even if you are in College or University, this Video Training Course will be of immense help in Reading P & IDs for some of your classes and/or arm you with a profound skill you can use when you go to work.

Let me show you how I’ve helped thousands of people like you to easily Read P & IDs. These people work in the Oil and Gas Industry, Power Generation, Chemical Plants, Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants, and anywhere where you can find P & IDS being used. Some were Tech school (College) and University (Engineering) students.

But that is not what you're paying today!


If all this did was give you the kickass ability to Read and Interpret P & IDs no matter how complex they are, wouldn’t it be worth it remembering how important the skill of reading P & IDs is to anyone working in the Process and Power Plant Industries?

If all this did was give you back your self-confidence, feelings of adequacy from feeling competent, pleasure in doing your work easily from this new cutting edge skill, the ability to express yourself with all levels of plant hierarchy, would it be worth it? If this gave you autonomy and the power to command respect from peers at work, would it be worth the few dollars compared to a lifetime career value it gives you???
