Training and competency

* Click here for the EEMUA Statement on Covid-19 *

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 (MIPC®) 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 also supports other training schemes where appropriate, such as the PACT modular training in Process Automation, and the UK PA7 apprenticeship in process automation.

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.

From January 2020 EEMUA will be launching electronic certificates, please refer to our FAQ's or contact our team if you have queries regarding this. 

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. If you have an online learning need that is not immediately provided by EEMUA but is in the industrial engineering area, please contact online-learning@eemua.org with your query in the first instance.

EEMUA-based training courses and competency certification schemes cover four main areas, which are listed below.

Storage tanks

EEMUA 159 CompeTank® is the official EEMUA training, assessment and certification scheme for tank integrity assessors, engineers and managers.

Subsea materials corrosion and control

Subsea engineering: materials selection and corrosion control is a two-and-half-day training-only course. It is based on the comprehensive user guidance in EEMUA Publication 194.

Hazardous area working

The CompEx competency scheme provides essential knowledge and practical skills for safe working in potentially explosive atmospheres arising from flammable gas, combustible dust or other hazards.

Mechanical integrity
