Training Course Registration

DEKRA has thousands of hours of experience in process safety and over the years has developed a range of specialist courses. Our aim is to assist companies in developing and promoting and understanding of hazard awareness in their workforce as well as providing detailed technical knowledge on hazard and risk assessment and legal compliance. Our courses are available either as public events or as tailored in-company courses.

Combustible Dust Fundamentals (NFPA 652)

1-Day Course: $495, 0.6 CEUs • 2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

NFPA 652 is the “On Ramp” to combustible dust requirements contained in the various NFPA Codes. It contains mandatory requirements for the management of the fire, flash fire, and explosion hazards posed by combustible dusts. Although this standard provides some flexibility in approaches for ensuring the safety of the occupants, facility, processes, and equipment, some of the requirements must be complied with retroactively.

Flammable Liquids, Vapors and Gas

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

This course provides the knowledge and skills to identify, mitigate, and protect against the hazards associate with flammable liquids, vapors and gases. The first day will encompass a detailed overview of the fundamentals of flammability, test methods and interpretation, electrostatic hazards and area classification, and relevant compliance standards, codes and regulations. The second day will cover mitigation and protections strategies for handling, storing and processing of flammable materials.


Offered as a bundle/add-on. Contact us for more information.

This course will provide a systematic approach to identify, evaluate and control electrostatic hazards. This class describes what different types of electrostatic discharges can occur, where they occur, and how much energy they produce.

Process Safety Fundamentals

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

This course will identify and help you to understand the fundamental elements of process safety and the essential ways to control and mitigate risk. Practical recommendations for how to implement process safety program elements will be discussed throughout the course. This class addresses regulatory (OSHA PSM and RMP EPA) aspects, introduces the 20 elements of CCPS Risk Based Process Safety, and provides how to apply best practices to non-regulated facilities.

Hazardous Area Classification

Offered as a bundle/add-on. Contact us for more information.

Controlling electrical ignition hazards in areas where combustible dusts and/or flammable liquids, gases and vapors are processed is a critical part of the Basis of Safety for the process. Misinterpretation or misapplication of the requirements for Hazardous Area Classification can result in catastrophic events that include loss of life. Attend this course to learn how to conduct a Hazardous Area Classification study, learn how to evaluate ignition sources caused by mechanical equipment, and specify appropriate (electrical) equipment in the hazardous areas.

Dust Hazard Analysis

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

An essential element of controlling combustible dust hazards is to conduct Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) on the process, as required by NFPA 652. DHA includes evaluating the process and equipment, what can go wrong, how bad it could be, and the administrative & engineering controls that may be needed to address the risk

Process Hazard Analysis Leader

3-Day Course: $1,195, 1.8 CEUs

This course provides an in-depth understanding of various types of PHAs, how to select a PHA method, and how to lead effective, efficient PHAs using tips from experienced leaders for ensuring efficiency and avoiding common pitfalls. Various methodologies will be considered as well as the regulatory aspects necessary for OSHA PSM and RMP EPA covered processes.

Reactive Chemical Hazards

1-Day Course: $495, 0.6 CEUs

Chemical reactions are used daily throughout the world to produce a variety of products. Under the right conditions, however, a reaction that has been conducted safely thousands of times can cause a catastrophic event due to unforeseen events or potential consequences. This course will teach you how to evaluate the risks of your chemical reactions to determine the worst-case consequences, design a safe scale-up process, and develop appropriate safeguards for each step in the scale-up process.
