LIST BY CLASSLIST BY LOCATION

The Refining Community offers excellent technical training courses for Delayed Coking (DCU), Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCCU), Sulfur Recovery (SRU), Coke Drum Integrity, and other petrochemical topics. Courses are offered before RefComm® conferences around the world, individually at regional locations and customized on-site for refinery, plant and vendor locations.

Operations, technical and maintenance staff learn how to operate their unit safely, efficiently and profitably. All of the class time is devoted to learning since we are not selling equipment and services.

Save your company time and money by educating your staff and avoiding costly errors. Our training courses examine real-world problems and practical solutions, preparing participants to anticipate complications before they arise. Training uses proven techniques and instructors with field experience. Classes can include independent thinking and group problem-solving exercises on real situations to cement the learning. With the knowledge gained from our training courses, your staff will have the confidence and awareness to “think on their feet” and get the job done safely and efficiently.
