Because chemical engineering matters…
IChemE is committed to supporting the professional development of chemical and process
engineers worldwide.
Our comprehensive programme of training courses is delivered all over the world. We cover both technical and non-technical
topics and we are a market leader in process safety training.
IChemE’s training business is growing. In 2014 we staged more open training courses than ever before and our in-company
courses took place in Australia, Malaysia and the UK as well as new markets such as Abu Dhabi, Ghana, Egypt, Kazakhstan
and Qatar.
Our in-company offer is a major strength with many organisations partnering with IChemE as their preferred international
training provider. All new courses are developed and delivered by Chartered Chemical Engineers or equivalent, and undergo
a rigorous peer-review process to ensure our high standards are met.
This year’s catalogue features a wide range of courses but there are plenty more new ones under development so keep an
eye out at www.icheme.org/courses or register for our mailing list at [email protected] to learn about new offers right
away.
And if you don’t see what you’re after here, get in touch. We’re regularly asked to develop bespoke training programmes to
meet the needs of industry and I’d be happy to hear from you.

In-company training
Most of our courses can also be run in-house, at a time and place that suits you. Many organisations already
partner with IChemE as their preferred international training provider.
If you have several colleagues interested in the same course, in-company training is a more cost-effective option,
with the added advantage that the programme can be adapted to relate to your own operational processes.
Contact [email protected] to discuss your requirements and request a quote.
CPD
IChemE wants to support its members in their professional development and we strongly encourage members
of all grades to maintain an active approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) whether this is to
maintain existing competencies or to develop new ones. Throughout this catalogue you will see a reference to
CPD duration next to each course listing.
Our mycareerpath tool is available free-of-charge to all IChemE members and will help you to record your CPD
activity. Manage your CPD at www.icheme.org/cpd
Don’t forget, if you are recording mandatory CPD you should refer to your own regulator’s requirements as
recognition of CPD hours may vary.

reducing energy demand and lower
cost energy options. Both power
and thermal heat will be addressed
against the backdrop of the current
market landscape and technology
options that are proven and

6-Stage Hazards
6-stage hazard studies have shown
that they can improve process safety
and enhance project management
from concept through design and
construction to operation – they
give better financial control, better
time management and reduce
last minute changes. The system
allows critical issues to be identified
and resolved early in the life of
a project, reduces reliance on
HAZOP at too late a stage in the
design and provides a framework
for incorporating health, safety and
environmental issues.

(HFAT®)
HAZOP Awareness
HAZOP has become a
mainstay in a wide variety
of chemical and process
industries over the last 40
years. It uses a systematic
application of guidewords to
identify potential hazardous
events, the consequences
of them taking place and
assesses whether there
are adequate safeguards in
place. It can be applied to
both continuous and batch
processes of any capacity
or complexity and helps
address health, safety and
environmental risks, as well
as help to avert business loss
and contribute to product
quality.

NEW
Mentoring for Chemical
Engineers
Process Safety Key Performance
Indicators and PSM Auditing
Mentoring is a process of
supporting and encouraging
someone to manage their own
learning in order that they
may maximise their potential,
develop their skills and
improve their performance.
Mentors empower the
individual by asking and
listening, rather than by
instructing and advising.
Major incidents continue to
occur in the process industries
yet many investigations reveal
shortcomings where effective
management oversight, using
process safety performance
indicators (PSPIs) and PSM
audit programmes could
have reduced the risk of such
an occurrence. Developing
effective safety performance
indicators is not always
straightforward. A balanced
approach that considers
leading as well as lagging
indicators is the best way to
manage major hazards, whilst
avoiding the pitfall of creating
an unwieldy system where
counting becomes more
important than action.
Mentors can help at any
stage along a career path,
supporting new recruits or
junior engineers to map out
their career paths and guiding
them towards becoming
chartered engineers, or
supporting more senior
engineers as they undergo
changes in job roles and
responsibilities.

Safety
Area Classification
The classification of
hazardous areas is an
integral part of the overall
risk assessment process
required under the
Dangerous Substances
Explosive Atmospheres
Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).
Its purpose is to define
the extent, frequency and
duration of any occurrence
of an explosive atmosphere
(the zone). The zone in turn
defines the requirements for
the selection of equipment
and protective systems so
as to prevent sources of
ignition. Compliance with
the DSEAR regulations is
mandatory for any operator
handling dangerous
substances.

6-Stage Hazards
6-stage hazard studies
have shown that they can
improve process safety and
enhance project management
from concept through
design and construction to
operation – they give better
financial control, better time
management and reduce
last minute changes. The
system allows critical issues
to be identified and resolved
early in the life of a project,
reduces reliance on HAZOP at
too late a stage in the design
and provides a framework for
incorporating health, safety
and environmental issues.

HAZOP Awareness
Provides an understanding
of the common causes
of incidents and how a
HAZOP study enables the
recognition of such causes
and leads to their elimination
from the design or process.
It includes simulation of a
HAZOP study meeting, as
well as substantial exercises
and case studies to illustrate
the HAZOP technique and
ensure understanding of the
procedure.
www.icheme.org/
appliedhazard
HAZOP has become a
mainstay in a wide variety
of chemical and process
industries over the last 40
years. It uses a systematic
application of guidewords to
identify potential hazardous
events, the consequences
of them taking place and
assesses whether there
are adequate safeguards in
place. It can be applied to
both continuous and batch
processes of any capacity
or complexity and helps
address health, safety and
environmental risks, as well
as help to avert business loss
and contribute to product
quality.

HAZOP Study Training for
Team Members – online
Provides a similar level of training to the conventional
courses but, because it is web-based individuals can
work through it in their workplace – or wherever they
have internet access – and at a time when the training
is most appropriate. It is designed for graduates from a
relevant discipline, off-shore operations personnel, or
those with considerable operational experience who
expect to be joining a HAZOP team.
The course has been created in the Moodle software
system, a popular framework in higher education,
including the Open University. Our website provides an
introductory course for newcomers to Moodle.
What is covered
All the essential topics needed to understand the
principles and practice of HAZOP study are included
within the eight modules of the course. Each module
covers a particular aspect, which include:
■■
basics and background to HAZOP study
■■
relationship to other hazard study methods
■■

Human Factors Analysis Tools
(HFAT®)
HFAT® is about
understanding the human
behavioural root causes
of incidents. It uses a
categorisation of human
failures as being unintentional
behaviours (sensory, memory,
decision making, and action
errors) and intentional
behaviours.
The course will provide a
basic understanding of how
human and organisational
factors influence health
and safety behaviour and
performance.

Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
LOPA is a semi-quantitative tool
for analysing and assessing risk
that looks at the safeguards
on a process plant to see if
the protection provided is
adequate for known hazards.
This course covers the
basic and more advanced
methodology of LOPA and
the detailed stages of its
application. Participants
are shown how significant
scenarios are categorised and
tolerable frequencies assigned
for identified hazardous
events. They are shown how
to assign risk categories and
hence determine the number
of independent protection
layers (IPLs) that should be in
place. The specification and
requirements for a protection
layer to be accepted as an
IPL are discussed. All the
essential steps in this method
are practised in workshops,
including the use of software
tools in LOPA.

Major incidents continue to
occur in the process industries
yet many investigations reveal
shortcomings where effective
management oversight, using
process safety performance
indicators (PSPIs) and PSM
audit programmes could
have reduced the risk of such
an occurrence. Developing
effective safety performance
indicators is not always
straightforward. A balanced
approach that considers
leading as well as lagging
indicators is the best way to
manage major hazards, whilst
avoiding the pitfall of creating
an unwieldy system where
counting becomes more
important than action.

SIL Determination and Hazard
Assessment
Designed for those who need
to understand the causes
and sequence of failure
that can lead to significant
hazardous events occurring,
and be able to identify the
key contributors to the
level of risk. The course
discusses how to quantify
hazardous event likelihood
using a range of techniques,
in order to assess whether
the level of risk is sufficiently
low and, if not, where to
focus attention for costeffective improvement. It
also considers instrumented
protective systems and other
risk reduction measures, and
assesses their actual benefit.

Many chemical engineers do
not consider their work to be
creative. Much of the day-today work involves established
methods, protocols and
design codes, built on years
of experience of what is most
effective and safe. However,

these established procedures
there is scope to adopt a

Mentoring for Chemical
Engineers
New to Management
Mentoring is a process of
supporting and encouraging
someone to manage their
own learning in order that
they may maximise their
potential, develop their
skills and improve their
performance. Mentors
empower the individual by
asking and listening, rather
than by instructing and
advising.
A manager must display skills
and behaviours which are very
different from those required
of a member of a team – and
the transition needed to
succeed is probably greater
for someone moving into their
first managerial role than it will
be at any future point in their
career. Unfortunately for many
new managers – andJtheir
oin
employers – the training
toda they

Process Operations
With the rising cost of utilities,
energy efficiency has become
key in the drive to reduce
a plant’s production costs
and cut down on its waste
treatment bills. This course
introduces the basics of
pinch analysis – a systematic
procedure for the design
and improvement of process
systems for optimum energy
usage and minimum waste
generation. It will enable
participants to assess the
energy efficiency of their
plant and identify measures
that could reduce their
plant’s energy consumption
without adversely affecting its
structure.

Process Plant
Pressure relief can be caused
by a number of events
including fire, reaction
runaway, thermal expansion
and process abnormality.
Incorrect design of pressure
relief systems continues to
result in major safety and
environmental incidents
with resultant business
consequences. Incidents can
occur as a result of failure to
provide relief, inadequate
relief capacity, disposal system
failure or incorrect design
and installation. A structured
approach to pressure relief
design is vital to ensure
protection of plant from
excessive over and under
pressure. This course is based
on ABB’s extensive experience
of design installation and
maintenance of relief systems,
and covers a state-of-the-art
methodology, based on a life
cycle approach to pressure
relief. The format consists
of two core days with a third
specialist day.

successful procurement can
be the difference between
a profitable and loss-making
project or product. The
decisions leading to successful
procurement are made
throughout the business, from
technical specifiers to financial
managers and of course
procurement managers. An
understanding of the core
concepts and approaches will
aid the adoption of processes
that increase value and reduce
costs, whilst also improving
HSE and CSR performance.

Energy Cost Reduction – Efficiency
and On-Site Generation
Leading an ESOS Assessment
Dramatically rising energy prices
mean that Australian businesses
need to implement energy
efficiency or find cheaper energy
to remain competitive. This
course will outline strategies
for dealing with both sides
of energy costs – reducing
energy demand and lower cost
energy options. Both power and
thermal heat will be addressed
against the backdrop of the
current market landscape and
technology options that are
proven and economically viable.
By December 2015 all
large organisations will be
required to carry out energy
audit assessments, in order
to comply with the new
Energy Savings Opportunity
Scheme (ESOS) regulations.
These audits must be
conducted by a registered
ESOS Lead Energy Assessor
and IChemE has been named
as an approved authority to
award this status.

Water Minimisation
with Process Integration
BioenNW Project
The demand for resources such
as natural gas, crude oil and
water is increasing rapidly due to
population growth and economic
development, and the rising
costs of these resources has led
the process industries to seek
more cost effective, sustainable
manufacturing processes.
With global water usage set
to increase by more than 50%
by 2025, efficient use of water
in industry is now recognised
as being vital to achieving
sustainable development.
Similarly, an increased awareness
towards climate change issues is
encouraging industry to look for
techniques to reduce their carbon
footprint.
The European Bioenergy
Research Institute (EBRI) at
Aston University has a suite
of courses to enable you
to increase your personal
knowledge and skills in key
areas relating to the bioenergy
sector.
