Calibration checks the response of gas detectors and adjusts the devices to ensure optimum accuracy, it is therefore of paramount importance to ensure proper calibration is carried out by properly trained personnel. It normally involves various types of testing at fixed intervals. An additional bump test is to be performed prior to every use. Since these instruments act as a safety barrier when in use, calibrating such instruments will not only reduce risks but will also enhance safety, therefore, saving lives.
Upon completion of this course, the candidate will have a sound knowledge of the principle and the use of Gas Detection equipment onboard and the proper maintenance and calibrations that need to be carried out.
The learning outcomes of the Course will include;
1. Introduction to Gas Detection Equipment
2. Categories and Types of Gas Detectors
4. Tests and Limitations of the Equipment
5. Procedure for the use of Gas Detection Equipment
