Jerry L McAfee, Process Plant Startup Director, Process Technical Services"MasterClass gave me an understanding of the capabilities of current Completions Management Systems, the role they can play in providing organization and structure for the Completions process, and the value that the good ones like Zenator provide as a tool for assuring complete documentation packages for turnover to Operations."

MasterClass Series Introduction to Foundation Training in Systems Completion and CSU with API RP 1FSC"As a former commissioning engineer I find this an excellent resource to aid best practices in asset management, start up, testing, inspection, monitoring, risk, safety and related topics.

Thereby allowing the practitioner to generate important workflow, develop detailed analyses and a deep assessment into related design, productivity, operational HSE and quality assurance. Overall very readable and a great addition to anyone’s library." Dr Binder Singh PhD CEng PE FIMechE FIMarEST
