FCL staff have accumulated extensive expertise in the design and fabrication of pressurised equipment through many years of hands-on experience. This knowledge is available to those new to the industry and to those who want to expand their skill base through training courses designed to ensure that participants gain a practical understanding of the subjects covered. 

Courses are normally attended by between 6 to 16 delegates and are held at the clients’ own offices. Alternatively, if this is impractical, FCL are able to arrange use of nearby conferencing facilities.


Bespoke PED/PESR courses aligned to a particular company’s requirements or product range can be provided on request.

Please contact us at

if you would like us to provide you with a quotation for a bespoke training course.


Noting the recent announcement from the UK Government that  recognition of CE marking for placing goods on the market in Great Britain is to be extended indefinitely, an up-to-date awareness of the requirements of the PED and PESR and their respective CE and UKCA markings is probably more important than ever.

To fulfil this need, FCL continue to offer a standard PED/PESR awareness / refresher session which can be run on request.

Standard course material is presented in a classroom based setting and is aimed at providing delegates with an awareness and understanding of the following:

  • requirements of the PED and the PESR and their respective CE and UKCA markings
  • differences between the GB regulations and the EU directive
  • responsibilities of the 'actors' in the supply chain
  • what is and what is not pressure equipment
  • the compliance process from concept to placing on the market
  • the documentation required to ensure fulfilment of the manufacturer's obligations
