This course is bought in and run according to demand. The cost will depend on the number of participants.  As an indication of cost, if 12 delegates are recruited, the approximate cost per person is £60 per person.  We may also have to hire in cylinders and the cost of this is also shared amongst the delegates.   If fewer than 12 are recruited, the full cost is shared among the number attending with the minimum number to make the course viable being 9.

Please Note: If you book a place on this course and fail to attend or fail to give two working days notice of cancellation there will be a charge to cover costs.




Who should attend - persons knowledgeable about and experienced in the use of laboratory gas systems within the work area that they will be responsible for. Those who wish to develop and implement a planned maintenance regime, including periodic visual inspection and functional checks

You will be required to wear safety footwear and safety spectacles on this course. Please bring the footwear and spectacles with you.

The course does not cover refurbishment and repair of components, nor statutorily required "thorough examinations" under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations should these be required - these are carried out by the engineering inspector from the insurance company who is the "Competent Person" for this.
