Manufacturers of pressure equipment selling into most European countries (the European Economic Area) must make sure they comply with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED 2014/68/EU).
The Directive sets out essential requirements for pressure equipment and assemblies. They vary according to how much pressure, liquid, or gas the equipment is designed to contain. The Directive does not tell manufacturers how to meet these requirements, allowing them the flexibility to meet the requirements with various manufacturing standards.
This eLearning course is a general introduction to the Pressure Equipment Directive.

What makes this adaptive learning method unique?
Through years of offering training for EU Directives, we have found that our clients rarely need the same level of training for all their employees. Some are experienced and need a refresher course, others are new to the concept of Pressure Equipment Directive.
Our adaptive learning uses a ‘teach by asking’ approach where it tests your knowledge and your confidence before it teaches you. This helps you learn more efficiently and focus in on what you really need to study to gain competence.
That's why our new cloud-based, eLearning approach adapts to the level of knowledge and experience of the student. As your employees go through the training, our adaptive learning engine feeds a number of continuous data points into an adaptive algorithm. This adjusts the learning path for each person, giving them a faster, easier and more focused way to learn.
A certificate is issued upon completion.
The course, depending on your knowledge level, takes approximately 2.5 - 5 hours to complete.
You will have access to the course for 12 months, giving you the opportunity to access the content and refresh your knowledge at any time during this period.
Access the course online and study at your own pace, at a time and place to suit you.
