Training and competency

The core competency of employees, contingent workers and contractors is vital to the safe and effective operation of industrial plant. EEMUA's classroom-based training courses and online learning play a key industry role in developing and testing the knowledge, understanding and competency of workers.

Discussions and work carried out in EEMUA Technical Committees over the years have resulted in a number of training and competency schemes for industry. EEMUA publications are often the starting point for new courses. The publications are developed to fulfil a need for guidance in a particular area of engineering practice or as a result of regulatory expectations. EEMUA's publications help to define or clarify what is good practice. The associated training courses then help to ensure competencies are developed and good practices are adopted and applied.

Awareness level e-learning courses and webinars (both live and on-demand) cover a wide range of engineering and process safety topics. They are available free-of-charge for EEMUA corporate members.

EEMUA has recently introduced the Mechanical Integrity Practitioner Certificate, a blended learning training course. The flexible online learning delivery and assessment, and robust certification means that Learners do not have to be away from site for long periods in order to obtain relevant, industry accepted competence in a safety critical area, with appropriate evidence for stakeholders. If you have any queries on this new course, please contact EEMUA at online-learning@eemua.org

EEMUA training courses can form part of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD). For further details, please check with your HR/Learning Department and relevant professional institution.

All of EEMUA’s training and competency courses can be delivered in-house. Contact events@eemua.org or call +44(0) 207 488 0801 to discuss your requirement.
