Working with Flanges (with protocol) – Basic training
The two-day course Working with Flanges is intended for employees in the industry who are responsible for the opening and closing of flange connections. In this course they are taught how flange connections are opened and closed in a safe and responsible manner. The certificate Working with Flanges is similar to the ‘old’ certificate Flange Mechanic Low Pressure.
Note: To participate in SSVV Training Guide (SOG) exams, participants must be in possession of a valid certificate Basic Safety VCA or VOL VCA.
If a candidate has sufficient capacity, we recommend following the course “Working with flanges according to protocol” instead. After following that course participants may also work with torque wrenches and are therefore more versatile.

- Types and methods of use of different tools
- Opening and closing flange connections

The Open Enrollment Training Working with Flanges consists of two days of instruction from 08.00 to 16.00 hours for groups of an avarage of 8 participants. Both the theoretical and the practical part will be completed with a test. For groups and in-company training, the course and times (evenings and weekends are also possible) can be adjusted.
With sufficient result, the participant receives a SSVV Training Guide (SOG) Working with Flanges certificate. This certificate is valid for 5 years.
