A list of the Maintenance courses that Site Skills Training offers are listed below.

Basic Hydraulics (Hydraulics 1) Training

This program provides candidates with a knowledge and understanding of hydraulic principles, components, symbols and circuit diagrams. This includes:

  • Hydraulic actuators – linear actuators, rotary actuator motors, hydraulic actuator calculations
  • Hydraulic pumps – gear pumps, vane pumps, piston pumps
  • Hydraulic control valves – directional control valves, check valves, flow control valves
  • Hydraulic pressure control valves - relief, unloading, sequence, counterbalance, brake, pressure reducing valves
  • Appropriate calculations
  • Fault finding

High Voltage Awareness Training

High Voltage Awareness training (ID 2066) provides essential knowledge for electrical and non-electrical workers who are required to work on and/or around High Voltage equipment. The course covers, hazards associated with HV, PPE required for working near HV Electrical Equipment, Lock out, tagging and isolation procedures, and first response to a HV incident.

Upon completion students should be able to undertake the following tasks:

  • Comply with PPE requirements when working near HV electrical equipment.
  • Identify hazards associated with working near or on HV apparatus and apply hazard control measures.
  • Comply with lockout, tagging and isolation requirements in accordance with permit procedures.
  • Carry out first response in an HV incident.

Hydraulics Awareness Training

Hydraulics Awareness is designed to give participants working in and around hydraulically operated plant and equipment, an awareness of the key hydraulics systems and components. Hydraulics Awareness is applicable to all working environments and all levels in the maintenance and operation chain.

The contents includes and awareness of:

  • Hydraulic safety principles
  • Hydraulic principles; physics and basic calculations
  • Components - type; use and symbols
  • Systems - common types; circuit diagrams
  • Basic fault finding

Introduction to Technical Drawings Training

Introduction to Technical Drawings introduces trainees to the interpretation and use of Process and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) as well as other technical drawings used within the oil and gas industry, particularly in regards to gas transmission pipework and facilities.
