This highly participative EuroMaTech training course is designed to provide you with the skills to understand how Electrical and Instrument systems are designed, installed and operated in industrial process plants, particularly in the oil and gas, mining and minerals processing and heavy industries.

This Electrical and Instrumentation training course is interactive and encourages delegates to participate through questions and answers, along with opportunities to discuss with the presenter specific issues which may result in appropriate solutions.

Participants will learn:

  • A brief revision the fundamentals of electricity
  • How to read single-line diagrams
  • The key requirements of plant and facilities power distribution
  • The selection of motors and motor control for various applications
  • How hazardous areas are classified
  • How electrical equipment is selected for hazardous areas
  • The fundamentals of control systems and instrumentation
  • How to read loop diagrams
  • The importance of secure earthingand bonding
  • The operation and maintenance of electrical, instrumentation and control equipment to ensure Plant Safety
  • Review the fundamentals of electricity
  • Understand fundamental safety requirements for personnel and equipment
  • To read single line drawings and identify components of electrical equipment
  • Understand the types of equipment used in electrical power systems
  • Learn about electrical distribution systems and how they are configured
  • Understand the importance of hazardous area requirements
  • Learn the basics of instrumentation and control systems in a plant or facility
  • The importance that instrumentation and control in the safe and reliable operation of the facility
  • Understand earthing and bonding to ensure safety
  • Understand the importance of operating EIC equipment with its design limits
  • The importance of the maintenance of Electrical Equipment

This Electrical and Instrumentation training course is designed to provide a practical insight for personnel who interface with electrical systems in the Oil and Gas, Minerals Processing, Mining and Heavy Industries, or work in the engineering consulting industry servicing these clients.

It is specifically tailored to suit those who have a basic understanding of electrical principals and require further knowledge of electrical and instrument systems to more effectively manage their work and where necessary execute multi-discipline projects.

Personnel who should attend are:

  • Project Professionals and Engineers
  • Facilities Engineers
  • Process and Chemical Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Maintenance Technicians

It is also a useful introduction for inexperienced Electrical and I&C engineers (i.e. graduates and the like) to gain an understanding of the practical issues that they will face in their careers.


This EuroMaTech training course will combine presentations with interactive practical exercises, supported by video materials, activities and case studies. Delegates will be encouraged to participate actively in relating their particular protection requirements at their workplace.

There will be adequate time given for group discussion during and at the end of each session, including detailed case studies and anecdotes on based on the subject matter and the facilitator’s own experience in the field.


This Electrical and Instrumentation training course covers a wide range of topics relating to Electrical, Control and Instrumentation Design and Installation, from basic principles to the complex application of such systems in large plants and facilities, including their Operation and Maintenance.

It is designed to be beneficial for professionals with a non-electrical or instrumentation background who require an understanding of IC&E for their work or project execution, as well as graduates in the instrumentation, control and electrical field who wish to gain practical knowledge in their field.
