Flow measurement is an important aspect of business for processing units and factories that require bulk raw materials in the form of fuel. Such sectors need to accurately measure the raw materials which they pay for, and the finished goods they produce and get paid for. This measurement is conducted by a process called flow measurement and the accuracy of this procedure greatly determines the fortunes of companies, since even a tiny error can result in losses of millions of dollars.

Custody transfer is defined as the exact commercial transaction that occurs when a change in ownership of fluids takes place. This highly specialized form of metering requires exceptional accuracy, repeatability, and auditable values and is performed by highly engineered flow measurement systems for the intended application.

The aim of this course is to familiarize you with the problems and solutions associated with flow measurement and custody transfer. You will learn about a variety of flow measurement technologies and systems and custody transfer applications, fluid laws, quality systems and about devices for automating the measurements. This course is extremely relevant at this time when fuel prices are rising, CO2 trading is emerging, and global awareness about greenhouse emissions is spreading.

On successful completion of the course, you will receive a Course Completion Certificate from KnowledgeHut with Credits (1 credit per hour of training).

At KnowledgeHut, I had one of my best educational experiences. The course is extensive and contains many materials, including videos, PPTs, and PDFs. In addition, all the trainers and the support staff were incredibly accommodating and accessible.

Attended Data Science with Python Certification workshop in August 2022

5 stars What a totally awesome Data Science bootcamp! I tried learning on my own through text books and online material, but it was such a struggle as I had no one to clear my doubts. Knowledgehut has brought out a totally different and interactive, comprehensive, logical systematic approach to the subject that made it super fun to learn. Love all your courses(This is my fifth!).

Attended Data Science Bootcamp workshop in July 2021

Absolutely worth it The Data Science curriculum was very challenging and rigorous, but the trainer hand-held us through the whole learning journey, answered all our doubts and gave us illustrations from his own industry experience. One of the best investments I have ever made.

Attended Data Science Bootcamp workshop in July 2021

I now have a job offer! The hands-on learning really helped. For someone like me who is completely new to this field, it was easy to learn all the Data Science and Machine Learning tools, especially Time series forecasting, machine learning and recommender engines. I have a job offer from Uber and am so grateful!

I know from first-hand experience that you can go from zero and just get a grasp on everything as you go and start building right away. 

Attended Back-End Development Bootcamp workshop in April 2021

Knowledgehut is the best training institution. The advanced concepts and tasks during the course given by the trainer helped me to step up in my career. He used to ask for feedback every time and clear all the doubts.

Attended PMP® Certification workshop in January 2020

Knowledgehut is the best platform to gather new skills. Customer support here is very responsive. The trainer was very well experienced and helped me in clearing the doubts clearly with examples.

Attended Agile and Scrum workshop in June 2020

I am really happy with the trainer because the training session went beyond my expectations. Trainer has got in-depth knowledge and excellent communication skills. This training has actually prepared me for my future projects.
