Process Operations

Accurate Safety Compliance

Process Operations

Do your operations personnel have the knowledge to navigate your processes and drive your operations success?Operations personnel need to know how to minimize accidents and downtime by promoting safety and efficiency. Whether getting new employees up to speed quickly or providing a tune up for experienced personnel, ASC’s Process Operations series is the key.Our Process Operations series includes 16 courses intended for process plant operators, but are useful for maintenance and other plant personnel. The courses in this series range from general knowledge courses including process chemistry and reading P&IDs to courses about specific equipment such as distillation towers, heat exchangers, and reactors.  Each course has objectives, multiple lessons, and feedback screens that allow the learner to revisit content. Automatic bookmarking makes it easy to take a course in segments. All courses are enhanced with professional graphics, animations, and narration, as well as test questions to ensure learning. Courses are delivered via a state of- the-art learning management system that allows you to customize curricula, adjust testing parameters, and even customize courses with site-specific content and photos.These courses cannot be administered and paid for online by the user, they must be assigned by ASC.  Please click Register buttons to send us a request for these courses and we will contact you shortly to complete transaction and get you started!!!

Courses for Process Operations

612 Distillation Basics

registerPresents the basic terminology and methodology of batch and continuous distillation processes. The course builds on the fundamental concepts of vapor pressure, boiling point, and condensation point as the key factors in distillation. The course also illustrates typical tray column components and configuration.

613 Operating Distillation Towers

registerAddresses changing variables and the effect on other variables, common distillation process problems, and normal operations.

617 Reading P&IDs and PFDs

registerExplains how to read P&IDs and PFDs, identify the differences between the two, and identify the basic symbols used. Some of the basic symbols include valves, equipment, exchangers, piping, and more.

618 Centrifugal Pump Basics

Examines the purpose and functions of the single-stage, end-suction centrifugal pump; leak prevention methods; types and uses of packing and seals; key pump components and auxiliary functions; proper pump performance; and methods of control.
