Knowing how to perform measurement procedures is a great starting place, but knowing why procedures are performed in a specific manner is the ideal environment for personnel and the companies that employ them.
As challenging as it may be, effectively delivering training is an increasingly important issue for today’s energy companies. Expediting training is also important for companies. Standards-based training can be difficult because it requires an instructor who has familiarity with applicable standards and can relate the importance of the measurement practice. Companies recognize that by developing a thorough understanding of gas measurement, personnel can contribute to maximizing measurement accuracy, thereby directly affecting the revenue generated through the sale, purchase, or transportation of natural gas.
In addition to the topics covered in our Gas Measurement Fundamentals & EFM Best Practices course, instruction addresses linear meters (coriolis, ultrasonic, and turbine), the complete EGM system (primary, secondary, and tertiary devices), and the impact of measurement uncertainty based on processes and practices. The second week combines both lecture and hands-on exercises based on following industry standards and how deviation can induce measurement error.
Participants have two options to gain a certification in gas measurement fundamentals: take the 9 days (over 2 consecutive weeks) or split the two weeks over time. We offer the full certification course 3 times each year, and the Gas Measurement Fundamentals & EFM Best Practices course (the first week) 4 times each year.#GCI
