SCS’s Refrigeration Operator I & II Training Programs use the applicable RETA Industrial Refrigeration (IR) 1 & 2 manuals which are included for the duration of the classes. These intensive four-day classes are provided in locations across the nation; convenient for attendees to participate locally. Each class has its own prerequisites which are detailed below; click here for locations, cost, detailed information, and to register.
Operator I: Designed for the beginning refrigeration operator, manager, and/or safety personnel with limited refrigeration training.
Operator II: Designed for the refrigeration operator, manager, and safety personnel who have passed the Operator I class and have a higher level of experience and knowledge in industrial refrigeration systems using ammonia as a refrigerant.
SCS offers custom on-site training programs for businesses and facilities. This includes, but is not limited to:
Training is provided using materials from RETA, IIAR, manufacturers, and/or field experience, as well as facility-specific standard operating procedures.
Introduction Class: This 2-day training includes ammonia refrigeration-focused material specific to your PSM/RMP program and facility using RETA, IIAR, manufacturers, and field materials as well as facility-specific standard operating procedures. We highlight the responsibilities of the various PSM/RMP Team Members that may include, but not be limited to, maintenance, safety, management, environmental, and/or facilities personnel:
Advanced Class: SCS Advanced PSM/RMP Training is a 3-day course for experienced PSM Program Managers, Plant Managers, facility compliance personnel, and safety-EHS staff who want a detailed review of the more complex regulatory requirements included in the PSM and RMP regulations. The class focuses on the intricate details of the following elements: Process Safety Information (RAGAGEP), Standard Operating Procedures, Management of Change (Project planning through PSSR), and Mechanical Integrity.
This intensive three-day training is designed for operators who are pursuing their RETA CARO or CIRO certification. Each course includes a review of the pertinent materials. During Day 2, participants receive a voucher to take the RETA Practice Test. Our instructor reviews the test results and customizes Day 3 to incorporate material that was found to be deficient within the testing.
…Great Class! It was very informative and eye-opening for the actual workload of a true PSM Coordinator Job. I will make it a goal for 2019 to have our Plant Engineers attend the Basics class and I hope to have the Chief Engineer attend the Advanced Class. Everything was very well put together. Kudos for a great program. John Schramm, Corporate Safety Officer, Quality Refrigerated Services
