Technical Safety Program (In-house)

Technical Safety Programme

Through the 2019 Technical Safety Programme, Risktec is offering the opportunity for you select up to nine of our hand-picked, two day courses which are delivered face-to-face by our industry experts. 

The program offers a range of topics, relevant to the Oil & Gas industry, which can be studied as standalone modules or as part of a Risktec Professional Qualification.

The courses have been developed such that the content and learning outcomes are at the same level as our postgraduate modules approved by IChemE in support of the knowledge and understanding requirements of their Professional Process Safety Engineer registration.

Each course comprises around 100-150 slides, several videos and, most importantly, activities designed to enhance the knowledge and practical skills of participants. Each course provides a hands-on learning experience, with emphasis on the activities. Many of the slides provide backup content for reference purposes.

The Risktec trainers are active practitioners in the process sectors. They have extensive training experience and utilise accelerated learning techniques. The Risktec trainers draw heavily on their practical experience when delivering this training program and provide examples of experiences in the real world.

If you choose to undertake a Risktec Professional Qualification, you will be given the assignment question to take away with you at the end of the second day and will be provided with a deadline for submission of your assignment to Risktec. Upon successful completion of all assignments, you will receive your Risktec Professional Qualification.
