An Introduction to HAZOP

This new online course will help you develop a better understanding of all things HAZOP. Split into two, 60-minute sessions, the course will help you understand the HAZOP process, its benefits and limitations, the roles and responsibilities of HAZOP participants and when the HAZOP technique should be applied.

An Introduction to LOPA

This online course will help you develop a better understanding of all things LOPA. Split into three 60-minute sessions, the course will help you to understand the principles of a LOPA study, how to identify significant scenarios and how to define an independent Protection Layer, how to estimate frequencies and how to document and audit a LOPA study.

Confined Space Entry

Raise awareness of the issues surrounding confined space entry to adopt safe designs and practices and avoid the occurrence of such incidents.

Consequence Modelling Techniques

This new online course will help you understand a range of consequence modelling techniques, including their advantages and limitations.

Creativity for Chemical Engineers

Creativity is at the heart of engineering, and is essential for developing innovative products, processes, and solutions to complex problems. Developing creative skills gives individuals and their organisations competitive advantage.

Dust Explosion Risk Reduction

This series of 4 case studies covers the reduction of risks from dust explosion making use of the DERReK methodology that is presented in the IChemE/BPE Dust Explosion online training modules. Each case study will demonstrate how the methodology works and how it can be applied to different potential dust explosion problems in different industries.

Dust Explosions

This award-winning online course, delivered in partnership with BPE, comprises of four modules, each between 60-90 minutes in length, examines the causes and prevention of explosive atmospheres and the requirements of the European ATEX directives and the associated IEC and ISO standards.

Effective Communication for Engineers

This modular online course conveys the fundamental principles of effective communication, and builds on these principles to help engineers optimise their communication in various situations such as email, documents, meetings, and presentations.

Effective Technical Writing

Technical writing is one of the most important activities undertaken by an engineer, with the content often being safety-critical or business critical. It is therefore worthwhile considering how to improve the quality of documents and the efficiency of the writing.

Emergency Planning Principles

Learn the key aspects of emergency planning including procedures, training, testing and performance review

Engineering Procurement

You will learn how to effectively apply business processes that increase value from suppliers, reduce costs and improve overall commercial performance. The course has been developed to meet the specific needs of the chemical, biochemical and process industries.

Establishing a Creative Engineering Culture

Creativity is at the heart of engineering, and is essential for developing innovative products, processes, and solutions to complex problems. Creative approaches are less effective if they are adopted by a few individuals. Real benefit is to be found wherever a creative culture prevails within an organisation. Establishing a creative culture in an engineering organisation takes more than installing some funky chairs, a football table and a suggestion scheme.
