Courses

All our solutions are developed with the involvement of science industry employers and stakeholders, and are underpinned by national and regulatory standards, ensuring that they meet the unique requirements of the sector.

We can help improve the competency of your workforce and process safety performance

Cogent Skills has been at the forefront of Process Safety Management (PSM) training for major hazard industries for over 9 years with a focus on delivering a high quality, culture change Process Safety programme that makes a positive impact within organisations.

Our remit is to promote, deliver and evaluate this specialist training throughout industries, and since 2010, we have engaged over 15,400 people and 260 unique employers in Process Safety management training. Delegates ranging from global chief executive level through to site leadership, management, supervisors and operators.

About Our Courses

Each of the PSM courses are relevant to COMAH and non COMAH sites. Our training provides delegates with a structure to identify potential hazards and gives guidance on how to implement an effective process safety programme for operators through to senior executives and board members.
We can provide access to the OECD survey to benchmark yourself against the regulatory requirements and also provide competency assessments after the end of the training to ensure that delegates have achieved the competencies required to meet the industry standard.

We also deliver Workplace Competency Assessment training (WCA) to upskill supervisors and mentors and give them the ability to correctly assess the competencies of their team.

Cogent Skills can work with you to develop bespoke versions of our courses which can be delivered for companies who want a unique solution for their business, to concentrate on their company’s specific need.

Our courses are delivered by expert delivery partners who as well as being industry experts, go through a technical panel and ongoing quality observations to ensure high quality when delivering training solutions. Go to the Stakeholders page to read more on our delivery partners.

Why our training is unique?

  • Our training courses are the only ones that are benchmarked to the PSMCPB industry Standards
  • Our courses are recognised as an “example of good practice” by the HSE within the ‘Understanding COMAH: The Performance and Recognition Framework and can lead to a “reduction in scope or depth of inspection”
  • Designed by industry for industry, the training has specifically been developed to encourage a long-term view through the development of action plans, leaving companies with the competencies to operate a good Process Safety culture and potentially reduce incidents and shut down time
  • Our courses are delivered by expert delivery partners who go through a technical panel and quality checks to ensure high quality when delivering training solutions
  • Our Gold Standard Workplace Competence Assessor course will help your staff to assess competencies in the workplace and demonstrate competence to regulators
  • We can adapt the courses to your specific need responding to your culture and internal standards
  • We can work with you to create your own branded Process Safety courses that we can map to the standards.
