This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date knowledge of detailed engineering drawings, codes, and standards. It covers the interpretation of drawings in a multi-discipline environment such as plant layout,  mechanical, structural,  instrumentation and piping  (P&ID);  the mechanical engineering drawings from design information; and the interpretation of codes, standards, and specifications in engineering drawings. 


Course Objectives: 

  • Interpret  drawings in a  multi-discipline  environment  such  as  plant  layout, mechanical, structural, instrumentation and piping (P&ID) 

  • Produce mechanical engineering drawings from design information 

  • Interpret codes, standards and specifications and apply them in engineering drawings 

  • Prepare hand sketches of a number of mechanical components and participate in a series of blueprint reading exercises 

  • Read, interpret and extract information from mechanical & piping arrangement drawings and piping & instrumentation drawings (P&ID)
