Gas detection training

This training typically covers the types of gas detection devices currently available for use, their application and operation, type of sensors, detection range, limitations and operational functions.

Courses can be tailored for specific gas detection devices. Courses generally also include a gas awareness component to ensure participants are familiar with the types of gases that are monitored by the various gas detection sensors, including such topics as toxicity, flammability and response.

Gas awareness training and gas detection training can be delivered as basic one-to-two hour information sessions or advanced one-to-two day modules that include formal practical and theoretical assessments.

Gas chromatograph training

We provide complimentary gas chromatograph training with any purchase of the SmartGas system.

We recommend refresher training be undertaken on an annual basis.
