HOSE ASSEMBLY SKILLS COURSE The skills course will take the candidate through the many techniques and considerations essential for the safe production of a quality hose assembly and ultimately leading to installation. This two day course involves both the theoretical and practical elements in working with hose and connectors. SMALL BORE TUBING INTEGRITY COURSE Delegates are offered a valuable understanding of the complexity surrounding small bore tubing and compression fittings. The course covers generic manufacturers twin ferrule compression fittings, thread awareness, tube and pipe differences and the preparation process, tube manipulation (bending) principles, common installation and routing techniques. FOUNDATION SAFETY COURSE This course has been developed to provide an introduction into hose, connectors and the safe assembly of these components for industry use. During the day the attendee will gain a knowledge and understanding of safe hose assembly and if applied will only enhance the safety within the hydraulic industry and the attendee. HOSE INTEGRITY, INSPECTION & MANAGEMENT The key themes covered during the one-day course include: hose life expectancy; risk analysis; competence by way of a robust competence assurance system; identify, inspect & record; hose register – recording of a hose assembly prior to it going into service; and visual hose assembly (installation) inspection check list. HYDROSTATIC PROOF PRESSURE TESTING The course will help give the delegate a greater understanding of the dangers associated with pressure testing. During the one day course the delegate will learn how to safely test hose and connector assemblies by taking into account a safe system of work best practice procedure (HSE GS4 document) along with relevant pressure test standards commonly used within industry. $PVSTFT DBO CF EFMJWFSFE GBDF UP GBDF PS POMJOF Gor more information or to check availability please visit: www.bfpa.co.uk/training Please call 01608 647900 or email enquiries@bfpa.co.uk
