Certified Process Design Professional / Expert Training (CPDP / CPDE)

Card image cap


Velosi is conducting online training for Certified Process Design Professional/Expert (CPDP/CPDE. This certification is structured in two levels, which will test the fundamentals of Process Design Engineering.

Designing process plants is a complex and demanding process. The design of plant layout is one of the most important tasks before plant construction. A good plant layout cannot only reduce capital cost, but can also help to improve the safety of the plant and reduce its environmental impact. Additionally, fast and easy access to the parts of the plant and the equipment is essential for effective operation and maintenance, which means higher plant availability and longer time between failures.


  • Familiarize participants with all aspects of process plant major equipment and piping systems.
  • Provide the participants with the skills and knowledge of current trends in process layout and process design calculations.
  • Know the application of principles learnt in process engineering courses such as Mass and Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Selection and Sizing of Process Equipment for a given process.
