Plant & Machinery Inspection

This course is intended for those from a relevant machinery background with several years’ experience of plant maintenance , to be nominated as a competent person to inspect plant. The overall aim of the course is that the delegate will be able to refer to relevant legislation, areas of responsibility, inspection procedures, methods, recording inspections, certification and defect reports.

Training alone does not confirm competency of an individual to carry out thorough examinations but rather is aimed to add to their training and knowledge and could be used by them as evidence to support competency, along with additional evidence of training, knowledge and experience. To demonstrate competency any individual would require sufficient technical knowledge & experience for the individual items of plant to be examined.
