flange connections

The ERGON Centre for the Improvement of Human Resources is organising a training course on the assembly of flanged joints. In order to be properly prepared for this job, it is important to be aware of the dangers that can accompany the work of a fitter. Flange joints may seem simple on the surface, but if they are installed incorrectly, there is even a risk of fire. This is why it is so important to be knowledgeable and qualified.

You are cordially invited to take part in a certified course on the installation and supervision of flange connections, conducted in accordance with PE-EN 1591-4 standards, in which you will acquire the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary for your profession.
