Learn to manage risk on the job

Working on flange connections is a specialized task with risks, where Peinemann Training Center offers two-day courses for both basic skills and specific protocols according to NEN-EN-1591 standards. Our training courses, led by experienced instructors, focus on safe execution and risk awareness when opening and closing flange connections.

For those who have been trained before but have an expired certificate, there is a one-day refresher training course. Finally, for employees in the (petro) chemical sector, there is the possibility of an SOG exam, which underlines the professionalism and safety of the work.
