Many training courses focus on the process, but the process can’t work without the power, air, heating, cooling, waste disposal, chemicals and water the utility systems provide. The focus of attention on the process can also lead to a degree of neglect in the operation and maintenance of utilities that ultimately affects the process anyway.
This course has been prepared to give a practical understanding of plant utilities, their importance to the process, the start up sequence of a plant and the emergency response required in the event of loss of power and air. The course also examines the opportunities for energy efficiency and the relationship with plant emissions.
It is an intensive course which relies heavily on the use of practical examples and exercises to explore utility operation, control, and optimisation.
Full payment for courses up to $1,500 must be made before the commencement of the course unless the Payment Plan option is selected. For courses that cost over $1,500, Site Skills Training will hold an initial deposit of $1,500. The balance of fees payable will be charged at a point in the course that is proportionate to the amount of the deposit paid, e.g. a 10-day course costing $3,000, the remaining $1,500 will be charged at the end of day 5 (upon completion of 50% of the course).
A Payment Plan option is available for this course, please visit the Payment Plans Page for more information.
Payment for this course can be made via eftpos, cash, cheque or the Payment Plan option above. For billing information including who to write a cheque to, please email email@example.com or call 1300 700 080.
Upon Successful completion of Understanding and Optimising Plant Utilities, participants will receive a Statement of Completion.
At the end of the course delegates will be able to explain the fundamental elements of utility systems, and explain the most common configurations of each utility and their interdependencies.
Most importantly the participants will understand the reliance of the process on the utilities. They will also understand how control regulates the performance of the utilities and the potential interactions as plant load changes.
This thorough understanding will then equip the delegate to appreciate common operating problems, their causes and their solutions.
