About the course
4 Live sessions
Starts March 1
The pipe stress courses Fundamentals I & II by Stressman Engineering gives you a strong base and understanding of Pipe Stress Engineering, that will enhance your discussions with colleagues, vendors and clients and refuels you with inspiration and knowledge. In a set of instructor-led sessions you learn to understand the design philosophy of pipe stress. With practical examples the instructors will provide you a prominent course and give you a total overview.
The courses will give you a broader context of the concepts, insight into possibilities for optimization and cost reduction, and a strong base for deeper discussions with colleagues, vendors and clients.
Each Fundamentals course consists of 4 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. You are encouraged to ask questions and discuss with your expert trainer since this will enhance your learning. Session recordings and related training content are provided through the EngineeringTrainer online portal.

This course consists of 4x 2hr instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.
Access to the course
