NACC83083 - Short Course in Interpreting Technical and Engineering Drawings and Basic Hydraulics (flow)

Course Details

Course Summary

This non-accredited Short Course has been designed by CQUniversity client, NRG Gladstone Operating Services (NRG), based in the Gladstone area. The client has requested that CQUniversity assist with the upskilling of a specific cohort of NRG employees who require updated knowledge in the area of technical and engineering drawings as well as basic hydraulics for their role within NRG. This course is to be delivered as a two-day workshop course for this specific cohort on 9th and 10th February (two full days) at the CQUniversity Gladstone Campus.

See below course learning outcomes. There is no assessment for this course.

This course is not for the general public and is not to be placed onto the CQUniversity Website/Handbook or advertised. It is advised that the client may have other staff who require this training throughout the first six-months of 2021, however other workshop dates are yet to be confirmed. All 2021 intake dates have been selected to ensure availabilities can be added and scheduled when/if required by the client. 

Above listed price of $3,800 is per workshop (two days). This workshop costing caters for delivery up to 10 participants. 

Entry Requirements

This is a non-accredited course designed for a specific cohort of NRG employees to expand their knowledge base in the area of technical and engineered drawing interpretation (day 1) as well as basic hydraulics (day 2).
