Governor Appreciation Course

Penspen are also able to run a Governor Appreciation course instead of the High Pressure Gas Transmission Systems: Foundation Training course, on the same dates.

The five day Pressure Control Appreciation course is designed to give a general understanding of how gas pressure is controlled to ensure it is delivered to consumers at the correct pressure.

The course provides industry pressure control foundation training for managers, engineers and technicians. It includes a combination of classroom and practically based tuition for personnel working in non-network maintenance roles.

The programme aims to develop knowledge and understanding of the standards and regulations that govern pressure control activities and the operating principles of various regulators and control configurations utilised across all pressure ranges.

Course Aims

The aims of this course are to provide delegates with an understanding of how pressure is manages within pipelines, networks and to supply various types of gas consumers. This will involve providing knowledge and understanding on the operation of various pressure regulators and common systems.

To ensure delegates have a general understanding of legislation and industry standards applicable to pressure control activities and equipment.

Course Objectives

On completion of this course, delegates will:

  • Understand the operating principles of control and equipment across all pressure ranges. This includes: regulators, valves, filters, heat exchangers, metering systems and safety devices such as relief valves and slam shuts.
  • Be aware of the requirements of industry standards and legislation with regard to pressure control systems, such as IGEM/TD/13 Edition 2, PSSR, DSEAR, etc.


Accommodation can be arranged at a local hotel for a special discounted rate exclusive to Penspen.


Penspen has one of the best equipped facilities in the UK for training on high pressure gas at a purpose-built centre in South Wales.  The building includes a classroom with modern presentation equipment, a large workshop with several high pressure skid units and bays with distribution regulator sets.
