Course Description
This two-day course focuses on engineering drawings typically used in the chemical and process industries by engineers and technologists in the design phase, and by operations and maintenance staff once facilities are up and running. It is suitable for anyone interested in how drawings should be created, maintained, and used in assessing emergency situations and regulatory compliance issues. The combination of classroom instruction and workshop exercises focuses on critical documentation essential to the safe day-to-day operation of facilities (e.g., P&ID, PFD, Plot Plan, Electrical Area Classification, Piping Drawing, Isometric Drawing, Line List, Tie-In List and Shutdown Keys).

Participants will learn to:
•	Explain the relationship of P&ID drawings to facilities and appraise the potential for safety improvements.
•	Understand and evaluate the purpose, content, and importance of process/electrical and engineering drawings 
        from company plants.
•	Interpret P&ID drawings, including valves, equipment, and control/safety systems.
•	Develop and implement strategies to maintain current and accurate drawings throughout the lifecycle of the facility.
•	Provide engineers with the skills to communicate in the same "language" as facility operators during Management 
        of Change scenarios.
•	Recognize emergency situations and assess safety, environmental and regulatory compliance issues such as
        Process Hazards Analysis (PHA)/HAZOP studies.
•	Construct a foundation for base-level learning and support consistent improvement in quality, staff and 
        leadership communications, and other processes which rely on P&ID drawings.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

ACM has very friendly, welcoming employees. This course was taught at the right speed and covered all areas of P&IDs. I could tell by the way that the instructor taught that he truly loves what he does. This made me want to learn more about P&IDs.

The P&ID Engineering Drawings Interpretation Workshop is a good training required to develop the skills of Engineers and Drafters in order to speak a common language and to be able to correct errors that is carried over to generations.
