Read, Interpret and understand P&ID like Professional Engineer.

    • Understand the drawing’s components
    • What are P&ID, PFD, and BFD, and Why is it used? What information do these drawings provide?
    • Learn P&ID and PFD Symbols
    • Read Tank farm and Process Plant P&ID and PFD
    • Read P&ID for Column, Heat Exchanger, Pump, Tank, etc.
    • Learn to Read P&ID, PFD, and BFD using Industry Standard Drawings with real-life examples.

There is hardly any course available that teaches how to read P&ID in-depth, and without the help of a good mentor, it is challenging to learn and understand these drawings.

If you are working in Oil and Gas or any similar Process industries, you know the importance of reading P&ID and PFD. In this course, you will learn to read from real-life drawings so that there will be no disconnect between what you will learn and what you will see while on the job.

What are you going to learn in 41 lectures?

This course has more than 3 hours of high-quality video content. The course is designed in such a way that even if you don’t have any previous experience, you will still be able to master each topic covered.

The course starts with essential parts of the drawing that are specially designed for those who are starting afresh.

Reading P&ID and PFD is nothing but understanding the symbols on the drawing. Therefore, before moving to the actual drawing, you will learn the P&ID symbols used in these drawings.

P&ID and PFD selected as an example cover all major components of process facilities such as refineries, power plants, petrochemical complexes, and offshore oil platforms.

You can test your knowledge using a quiz that is designed based on the fresh P&ID that is not used in an example.

When you finish the course, you can confidently read and understand any P&ID, PFD, and BFD that you will come across at work.
