What's included?

Course Description 

Measurement is all about discovering the length, volume, temperature, weight, mass, pressure etc., of something, and is important in the oil, gas and chemical industries, and essential in engineering and construction.

Accuracy is very important, mores so when what is being measured could have a potential impact on control or safety if a measurement is wrong. This course will introduce you to the importance of accurate measurement, and the various process variables used in the oil and gas industry.
