Piping & Instrumentation Drawings (P&IDs) are important communication tools for engineers. To be effective in the workplace, you must be able to read and interpret them. To facilitate your knowledge of Piping & Instrumentation Drawings, Professor Barry M. Barkel presents the following fundamentals in this webinar: What are Piping & Instrumentation Drawings? What do they convey? How do you read them? What standards make P&IDs semi-universal?

If you need a working knowledge of P&IDs, or you’re a young engineer with limited experience reading engineering drawings, you will benefit from this webinar. It will also help more experienced engineers who need to understand technical discussions involved with design, environmental and safety reviews.
