Training programs

The training program at the National Construction Training Center will include the following trades:

Welding, Pipefitting, Electrical, Instrumentation, scaffolding and Safety Officer.

 

Safety Officer:

The primary objective of safety work is to eliminate or minimize human injury and property and production losses. The Safety and occupational health management work requires application of knowledge of: (a) the principles, standards, and techniques of safety and occupational health management; an (b) related elements of engineering, physical science, ergonomics and other scientific and technological fields which contribute to the achievement of comprehensive safety and occupational health objectives.

The Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) Certification Program is designed for individuals who demonstrate competency and designated as health and safety officer on construction job sites to prevent construction illness and injuries. This program will provide trainees with the first steps towards the international certifications.

Instrumentation Technician:

Given necessary tools and equipment, student will be able to plan layout, fabricates, assemble, and install primary piping/tubing safely using international standards.

The course objectives are:

  • To learn the basic overviews of instrumentation systems and process control system typically used in the Oil and Gas Production Plant.
  • To be able to use instrumentation tools and equipment, operate and maintain specific equipment in the Oil and Gas Production Plant.
  • To understand and are able to work on instrumentation systems safely and efficiently.

Electrical:

Given diagrams, vendor manuals, equipment, and materials, the trainee will perform Layout, cutting and filing, drilling operations, circuit diagrams and make crimped connections.

The goal of this program is to prepare students for employment in any of the related areas of the electrical trade. This program will provide an overview of electrical occupations, including training and employment options available in the following areas: Safety and OSHA Standards, Electrical wiring, Residential wiring, Commercial and industrial wiring.

Welding:

Participants in the welding training sessions will learn the latest techniques and procedures for beginning to advanced welding and cutting processes. The trainees will learn cutting techniques and will fully understand the characteristics of various metals.

These sessions will provide hands on training that will provide each of the participants with welding theory training topics, weld joints and positions, welding safety, weld and base metal nomenclature, defects, inspection criteria, shop math basics, blueprint reading, weld techniques

Pipefitting:

The objective of the course is to:

  • Explain how piping is sized.
  • Identify common piping.
  • Identify common pipe fittings and explain how each is used.
  • Recognize and interpret Plan Views and Elevation Views.
  • Use blueprints and drawings to determine piping configurations, dimensions, and fittings required.
  • Verify materials for a piping installation using different Materials.
  • Identify drawing symbols that are used for common welded, screw, and flanged pipe fittings.
  • Take accurate measurements.
  • Express piping measurements correctly orally and in writing.
  • Identify beginning and ending points of piping measurements.
  • Define the terms "take-off" and "make-up" as they pertain to piping.
  • Calculate fitting take-off and actual pipe lengths required from both blueprints and existing installations.
  • Measure, mark, and cut piping into required lengths.
  • Use a level and a square to correctly install piping.

Scaffolding:

Course Objectives:

The aim of the training is to provide candidates with the working knowledge and skills in the methods of the basic safe erection and dismantling of basic scaffolds.

At the end of the training, the candidates will be able to:

  • Safely Erect and Dismantle
  • An Independent Scaffold with a Return
  • A Mobile and Static Tower
  • Scaffold Systems
  • A Birdcage Scaffold
  • Inspect and Erect Ladders
  • Inspect and Fix Gin Wheels
  • Tie Knots and Hitches Common with Scaffolds
