Haneon Fort Engineering > Training Program > Piping & Instrument Diagrams Interpretation

Course Overview

The occurrence of process safety incidents with devastating consequences notwithstanding the implementation of modern technologies only underscores the need and desire for process safety knowledge.

Crucial to controlling and managing major accident hazard is the ability to effectively interpret Process and Instrument Diagrams. This capability which will require working with accurate drawings and the technical know-how to interpret them can only be acquired through detailed training of Process Control including Line and Instrument Designations, Symbology and Signal recognition .

Professionals and experts involved in the design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance and modification of process plant. Such persons may include but not limited to the following:

  • Chemical and Mechanical Engineers
  • Safety Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Production Managers
  • Consulting Engineers
  • Automation Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • Electrical Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers and Supervisors
  • Project Engineers and Managers
  • Instrumentation Engineers
  • Instrument and Process Control Technicians
  • Control Systems Engineers
  • Regulatory / Audit Professionals

The prerequisite for this course is a Bachelor’s degree preferably in chemical or process engineering. However, graduates from other engineering discipline who are interested in acquiring an overview of process design may register for the course.


The mode of delivery of all our courses is Online through Video Conferencing except the Quantitative Risk Analysis course where the mode of delivery is face-to-face. You will be taught through a live and interactive session where you will be able to communicate directly with the instructor and therefore have the same benefits as a traditional classroom session. All you need is a computer and internet connection. However, face – to – face and in-house training can be arranged.


Given the challenges facing traditional classroom learning that requires individuals to take time off from work to attend training courses while expending more resources, we thought participants can make better use of their time and improve work life balance by registering for online training.

Consequently, overall training cost is reduced by more than 50% due to the enumerated benefits below:

  • Eliminate the uncertainties and difficulties of securing a visa
  • Eliminate the risk off unnecessary travel
  • Eliminate the huge cost associated with logistics of international travel
  • Eliminate the local cost and hazard of commuting
  • You study from the convenience of your home or office
  • It is more flexible as assignment and tests are submitted electronically
  • Persons with physical and health challenges can participate easily

Fee: $1500 USD per registrant. 10% group discount for a minimum of five persons

Payment Method

  • Credit / Debit Card
  • Paypa
  • Direct Bank Transfer

Mode of Delivery: Online through Video Conferencing. Face-to-Face and in-house could be arranged
