All web-based courses offered by the IRC feature 1 or 2 instructors providing live audio feed over phone lines while participants view slides, documents, images and animations over their internet connection. Participants can interact with the instructors both on-line and by telephone during the course or can contact the instructors after the session has ended. Most courses are taught in 2 to 4 hour segments over several days. This allows participants stay productive within their plants since there is no off-site travel.
These courses are intended to build employee's and operator's understanding of refrigeration theory and fundamentals. Our experience has shown that employees and operators with this sounds knowledge make better decisions in their plants-particularly during upset conditions. This foundation of knowledge also makes employees better equipped to receive plant-specific procedure training as required by PSM. Currently developed courses and their brochures are listed below.
Ammonia Awareness Training for Employees
Overview of Ammonia Refrigeration Systems
Introduction to Refrigeration Systems for Operators
Intermediate Refrigeration Systems for Operators
Advanced Refrigeration Systems for Operators
Engineering Safety Relief Systems
