HAZOP Leader (TÜV)
This HAZOP Leader (TÜV) course is the only training for HAZOP leaders worldwide that is certified by an accredited body. The course will develop and test the delegates’ knowledge, skills and behaviours for the effective leadership of process safety related HAZOP workshops.
Participants who pass the examination will receive a PersCert (TÜV) certificate.
The course covers the fundamentals of HAZOP leadership, demonstrating how to apply the theory in practical situations and using real-world examples to illustrate key points.
The training is not industry-specific, however the exercises and worked examples are based on process safety hazards associated with oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical industries.
