This course is rescheduled from January 2023


Innovation and technology are key to any industry’s success – this has never been more true than now, as we face the challenges of achieving the energy transition to Net Zero.  Confidence in technology can be a barrier to investment and its acceptance into the market. However effective technology qualification can help address these barriers and overcome them.  The course will provide an overview of industry best practice for qualification of technology and how to select and design appropriate testing and analysis regimes to demonstrate functionality, reliability and durability for novel and modified technologies.  The assurance that can be gained from adopting these best practices are key to enabling successful commercialisation.

Course details

This online course is aimed at engineers, in any stage of their careers, who are involved in the development of new technology or who need to accommodate new or existing technology in new or more challenging applications. Examples will be drawn both from traditional subsea technologies and newer net-zero technology solutions.  A combination of presentations, discussions and group break-out sessions will be used and will cover:

  • The Technology Qualification Process
  • Defining Qualification Goals and Requirements
  • Use of Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs)
  • Types of testing and analysis to support qualification at each TRL
  • Qualification of extended/modified technology
  • Application of FMECA for technology qualification
  • Techniques for demonstrating technology confidence and reliability
