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. If a public option may not be a good fit, we also offer company-requested private webinar series and can deliver to a remote workforce via a digital platform. Contact us if you would like to speak to a consultant about arranging a customized training session for your company.

Combustible Dust Fundamentals (NFPA 652)

4-Day Virtual Course: $895 • 5-Day Bundle $1195

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. Successful completion of the class with the quiz results in receiving Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) Leader certificate.
Virtual training from the DEKRA Process Safety team leverages over 30 years of PS experience, while incorporating the latest techniques in remote learning. All classes are led by our experienced trainers using a dynamic, interactive approach.

Flammable Liquids, Vapors and Gases

2-Day Course: $895 • 3-Day Bundle: $1,195

This course provides the knowledge and skills to identify, mitigate, and protect against the hazards associated 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 protection strategies for handling, storing and processing of flammable materials. The course covers aspects of NFPA 30 (Flammable and Combustible Code), NFPA 67 (Guide on Explosion Protection for Gaseous Mixtures in Pipe Systems), NFPA 68 (Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting), and NFPA 69 (Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems).
The bundle offering includes the standard 2-day course with an additional 1-day class regarding Electrical Classification & Electrostatics Fundamentals (course summary/outline can be found clicking a class link).

Hazardous Area Classification & Electrostatics Fundamentals

Offered as a bundle with Combustible Dust Fundamentals or Flammable Liquids, Vapors & Gases. 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 Electrical (Hazardous Area) Classification can result in catastrophic events that include loss of life. This course will provide a systematic approach to identify, evaluate and control electrical ignition and electrostatic hazards. Attend this course to learn how to conduct a Electrical Classification study, learn how to evaluate ignition sources caused by mechanical equipment and electrostatic sources, and specify appropriate (electrical) equipment in the hazardous areas. The course covers aspects of NFPA 497 (Classification of Flammable Liquids, Gases, or Vapors and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas) and NFPA 499 (Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas).

Process Safety Management (PSM) Fundamentals

4-Day Virtual Course: $895

Process Safety Management (PSM) is the collection of management systems used to ensure that hazardous materials do not cause fires, explosions, or releases that can catastrophically harm workers, the public, first responders, or the environment. This class provides a roadmap of how to navigate OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119 Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals (PSM of HHCs). Attendees will know how to identify when a chemical process is covered, the differences between OSHA PSM and EPA Risk Management Plan (RMP), and the differences between the OSHA and CCPS Risk-Based Process Safety Models. The class highlights practical tips on how to apply PSM principles and ends with a workshop focused on PSM implementation.

Chemical Reaction Hazards

2-Day Course: $895

Reactive and energetic materials are used throughout the world to produce a variety of products. This course will teach you how to evaluate the risks of chemical reactions from process upsets in a manufacturing plant setting that can lead to undesired or runaway chemical reaction events. The class will focus on reactive hazard identification, instruments and testing strategy for characterizing reactive chemical systems and introduce appropriate controls such as emergency relief system design. Case studies will be reviewed to illustrate the application of the concepts.

Emergency Relief Vent Sizing and Runaway Reactions

5-Day Course: $1,995

This course is designed to cover the major aspects of safety relief systems sizing for single and multi-phase flow arising from loss of control of an exothermic chemical process. The course concentrates on the quantification and sizing of emergency vent systems for runaway reactions using experimental data derived from laboratory investigations. Emphasis is on the identification of the failure scenario and application of the appropriate calculation techniques required to arrive at correct system dimensions.
