  • Add other team leaders to help you — as many as you’d like.
  • See all test scores, getting answer-by-answer breakdowns of how personnel are scoring.
  • Expect prompt customer service and technical support. We’ve worked to make the platform as simple as possible. Users tell us we’ve achieved this, with one saying: “The platform is so easy, a child could use it.” But should you ever run into an issue, our team is ready to assist, aiming to respond to all inquiries within 24 business hours.

“Hex’s training services are terrific. I don’t know another vendor who offers the type of real-life knowledge that they include in the training.” — Jason Wright, CHS

Saved Time and Better Outcomes: What’s In It For Staff

Hex Technology started offering bolting training for a simple reason:

When people understand why they’re doing what they’re doing, they generally do better work.

Bolting technicians, craft assemblers and industrial maintenance staff are hands-on people. We know that because we are too. We’ve been working in refineries and industrial settings for the past three decades.

Our specialty is taking the complex science behind bolting best practices — the type of stuff covered in ASME PCC-1 — and turning it into information assemblers will actually use.

It’s “academic” training that’s highly actionable. Those who enroll can…

  • Enjoy non-boring training modules that will keep you engaged from lesson to lesson
  • Train up to Level 2 under Hex’s system, which is based on ASME’s PCC-1 Appendix A
  • Earn additional qualifications for Powered Equipment and Heat Exchangers
  • Receive certificates of completion valid for two full calendar years

The courses are suitable for anyone in oil and gas — upstream, midstream or downstream. They also apply to personnel at chemical or other industrial plants.

Honestly, anyone who picks up a torque wrench — or manages somebody who does — needs to know this material.

And when you enroll your team in our Crew Training platform, you and your staff get access to all of it, free.

That’s right, we said free.

“Their personnel are very experienced in bolting and BFJs, not only from an application perspective but also from field experience. They have a vast knowledge on tooling as well.” — Ben Fruge, Sasol

There’s Nothing “Theoretical” About It…

We’ve heard some people call computer-based bolting training “theoretical.”

The label is wrong. Way wrong, in fact.

There’s nothing theoretical about how bolting works. If you follow the guidelines laid out in these courses — which are all based on ASME’s PCC-1 Appendix A — you will have better results.

Conversely, if you fail to learn and apply the concepts, you’ll have worse outcomes — and all of the consequences that come along with them:

❌ More leaks

❌ Decreased efficiency

❌ Lower output

❌ Higher cost of operation

❌ Greater maintenance costs

❌ Increased risk of LoC incidents causing environmental hazard

❌ Decreased worker safety

You, your staff, your customers, and your shareholders all deserve better. Hex Technology offers Crew Training so you all can avoid these problems. When your staff completes the material, you’ll be more able to get the results you want, like:

✅ Leak-free plants

✅ Increased efficiency

✅ Maximum output

✅ Increased mechanical availability

✅ Less money spent on clamps or other “band aids” for bad assembly

✅ No LoC incidents

✅ A safer working environment

“Hex provides very valuable information that is practical and helps prevent gasket installation mistakes.” — Jose Veiga, Teadit

The Price is Right (Because There Isn’t One)

Best of all? This solution is currently available at no cost.

That’s right. It costs nothing to add your site. There are no charges for adding crew members. If your site has a staff of five, or 500, the cost is the same: Nothing.
