VALVE SCHOOLS 2017 – VALVE PRO 3 DAY COURSE

VALVEPRO® TRAINING – 2017 AUSTRALIA – VALVE CARE & MAINTENANCE 3 DAY COURSE

valve_pro

LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR 2017 – EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST

Heath Pipeline Services and exclusive supplier Sealweld (from Canada) are now seeking expressions of interest for the very highly regarded ValvePro® Valve care training course to be run later this year in Australia.  Schools will be running 24 October to 14 November, throughout Australia.  AVAILABILITY will be limited. 

THE MOST COMPLETE VALVE CARE TRAINING IN THE INDUSTRY

ValvePro® is a training program designed to help students acquire advanced knowledge of valve components and functions, and to practice hands-on skills to properly maintain valves and increase overall pipeline integrity. ValvePro® graduates will gain the knowledge and skill set to increase valve life span, reduce fugitive emissions and optimize efficiency at their facility will also benefit from enhancing their awareness of potentially hazardous situations and improving work practices.

Preventative valve maintenance, when performed regularly by skilled individuals, can mean the difference between optimal operation of your facilities or pipeline and an unscheduled shutdown.

Because every second of downtime means lost revenue, the ability to safely service valves that are inline and under pressure, without a shutdown, becomes essential to any operator whose goal is to run their facility as safely, efficiently and profitably as possible.

The “ValvePro® Certified Valve Maintenance Technician” course is intended for anyone seeking a career as a pipeline valve maintenance technician and for existing technicians who wish to enhance their skills. Individuals involved in pipeline construction, design, purchasing or engineering can also benefit from this program.

The ValvePro® course is comprised of an online component (approx 20 – 30 hours) and hands-on 3 days class room training.

COURSE OUTLINE

The “ValvePro® Certified Valve Maintenance Technician” training curriculum is delivered in two separate modules:

  • Online Training Module – takes students approximately 20 – 30 hours to complete
  • Hands-On Training Module – three consecutive days of instructor-led demonstrations, presentations and lectures

After successful completion of both modules, students will be awarded a “ValvePro® Certified Valve Maintenance Technician” certificate issued by PETEX.

The self-paced, self-study Online Training Module provides theory and procedures presented throughout four different levels:

  • Level 1 – Valve Basics
  • Level 2 – Valve Commissioning
  • Level 3 – Valve Inspection and Maintenance
  • Level 4 – Troubleshooting

It is designed to help students acquire the theory and knowledge to identify typical valve malfunctions and corresponding solutions to restore seal integrity. Successful completion of each module, with a mark of 75% or higher, is required before eligibility for the Hands-on Training module.

The instructor-led Hands-On Training module includes theory and practical procedures:

  • The operation of hand and power-operated injection equipment
  • High-pressure gauge reading techniques
  • Fitting and adapter identification and applications
  • Maintenance and troubleshooting the most common valves
  • Actuator and gearbox basics

All students must demonstrate their knowledge, skills and competency to the instructor under live or simulated conditions.
