Optimising Process Heat Systems Training

Delivery details

Dates: 24 & 25 August 2022 (Wednesday & Thursday)
Times: 9.00am–5:00pm (NZST)
Venue: Online (Via GotoMeeting)
Trainer: Jonathan Pooch (DETA Consulting)

This 2-day course is designed to enable the fine tuning of industrial processes to minimise energy use, cost and carbon emissions while maintaining process integrity and quality.

Who is the course for?

The course delivers the essential knowledge needed by plant operators, maintenance managers, contractor-based engineers and designers and graduate energy engineers to keep the processes they manage running smoothly, effectively and efficiently. The course will benefit them and, through them, their employers who will enjoy reduced costs and more efficient operations.

It is geared towards cost savings in larger organisations operating industrial processes, especially those with significant energy consumption.
