How will the training course run?

The introduction to Pressure System Safety Regulations 2000 training course is delivered online through the CoffeeSafe training centre and an online platform called Webex. Once the delegate is booked onto training, they will receive access to the CoffeeSafe training centre web application 1 week prior to the allotted training day. The delegate will then watch information and awareness videos and read through some documentation provided. This will help prepare the delegate prior to their days training session.

The training day will last from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The CoffeeSafe trainers are all IOSH approved trainers. The exam will be completed at the end of the training session and the delegate will be awarded an IOSH certificate should they successfully complete the exam. This is a great addition to your continual professional development.

The IOSH certificate is owned by the individual engineer.

The Introduction to the Pressure System Safety Regulations 2000 is sold as part of the overall partnership with CoffeeSafe.
