Gas Measurement Fundamentals & EFM Best PracticesNovember 16 - 19, 2020 | Interactive Online
*Now offered online.
The importance of measurement cannot be overstated, and this course provides participants a solid foundation to understand the impact of not following industry standards and best practices for measurement certainty. Seemingly minor discrepancies can have far-reaching results: adverse impact to revenue, noncompliance issues, breach of contracts, and possible litigation, so the need for accurate measurement is imperative.
This training is also considered the first week of our two-week Gas Measurement Fundamentals Certification course. <Participants can enroll for both weeks consecutively or split the weeks over time.>
By attending this instructor-led course, participants can return to their jobs and immediately apply the knowledge gained. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
