Course Description


This GLOMACS training course is designed to give a detailed insight to the participants for understanding of Codes and Standards with emphasis on the right approach and methodology for using the codes. It helps the participants to understand the Code objectives, Code intents, stated and implied requirements (i.e., letter and spirit of the code). It also helps the participants to know the mandatory, recommended, and optional stipulations of the code.

The training course also covers an overview of various codes and standards used in Process Industries for design, inspection, construction, and in-service inspection. This training course will be delivered in such a way that most of the code concepts will be clarified by both the code statements and the relevant examples. The training course also deals in: What is Code and what is standard (difference between codes and standards), Selection of appropriate code and standard for intended application, where one can take deviations from code etc. The training course is further designed such that participants with previous background of using the codes will understand the most effective and scientific use of codes for their purpose   while the freshers will understand the correct approach and right use of the codes.

The training course will feature: 

  • The main concepts and technical terms of Engineering Code
  • Introduction to the concepts of standardization and Codification
  • The basic difference between code and standard
  • The basic technical and scientific knowledge of Codes and standards
  • An overview of commonly adopted codes and standards in the process Industries with specific emphasis on Oil & Gas, and Petrochemical Industries
  • How to select appropriate code for design, material selection, inspection, and construction


By the end of this training seminar, you will be able to:

  • Appreciate the meanings of different technical terms and concepts used in engineering Codes and Standards
  • Choose the right engineering code for an intended application and carry out certain types of engineering calculations
  • Be able to understand limitations imposed by various codes on material for construction for pressure components
  • Understand Key Concepts of mechanical design, construction, Inspection and testing of pressure components
  • Select the appropriate standard components

Training Methodology

A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions and motivate everybody find the right answers. The delegates will also be encouraged to raise their own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using their own analysis and experiences.  Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the training course.

Organisational Impact

This GLOMACS training course will help to improve the organization Standard Operating Procedures and process systems. The organization will find it easy to be engineering and quality certified and approved for many other companies and organization.  

Personal Impact

Increase the personal ability to understand the local and international Mechanical code, Standard & Specifications as well Performing their jobs according to references. They will also be able to increase and update their knowledge reference to the best and current standards and improve their job processes, understand planning and schedule.
