    1. Identify and describe the information in the title block.
    2. Identify and describe the information in the main drawing
    3. Discuss the principles of line schedules
    4. Identify the use of specific symbols for equipment descriptions
    5. Provide an understand of the use of specific notes use on P & ID.
  2. Identify the main area on the master P & ID sheet
    1. Describe the abbreviations used for line designations on a master sheet.
    2. Describe the abbreviations used for instrumentation designations on a master sheet.
    3. Discuss the difference between graphic symbols and equipment symbols.
  3. Identify the common symbols used in P & ID diagrams
    1. Use the identification numbering system to d\identify different types of vessels.
    2. Use the identification numbering system to identify different types of valves.
    3. Use the identification number system to identify different types of pumps and compressors
    4. Use the identification numbering system to identify different types of heat exchangers
  4. Identify instruments used in control loops
    1. Explain why instruments and control loops are important for the safe operation of a processing plant.
    2. Identify the symbols for selected instruments
