Learn to operate compressors

Sign up for a course and become a compressor operator! An air compressor is nothing more than a device designed to obtain high gas pressure and to force the flow of gas. Compressors are used in both industrial and domestic settings. A compressor gives off a lot of heat during operation, so it is essential for it to have a cooling system. Sign up for the training provided at OSO and you will learn how to ensure high reliability and efficiency of your compressed air system and how to deal with the risk of failure. Our Operator Training Centre has air compressor training on offer.  

Among OSO's training proposals, you can also find other courses for forklift operators, telescopic handlers or mobile platforms, among others. We have enjoyed the trust of our customers for many years. We conduct our courses with due care in order to ensure the highest possible quality. You will find effective, professional compressor training programmes with us. We are able to adapt the training programme to suit your needs. We provide specialist training staff, attractive classes and favourable prices.  

Each participant will be introduced to topics such as:  

  • compressed air systems, 
  • operation of squeegees and blowers, 
  • operating principles, 
  • operation of compressors, compressors. 

In addition, each participant will become familiar with the legal regulations governing the operation of compressed air equipment and systems, as well as the classification and construction of different types of compressed air systems.

The following issues will also be addressed: 

  • health and safety regulations and Fire
  • compressor capacity control, 
  • fixed and transportable pressure vessels, 
  • compressor commissioning and design. 

Acquired competences

  • Working with portable compressors of various types and types. 
  • Actively participate in the inspection and repair of mobile compressors. 
  • Controlling the quality of the work carried out. 
  • Organising the operation of mobile compressors in different climatic and atmospheric conditions. 
  • Adhering to the parameters in performing the activities on the job. 
  • Personal and collective protection equipment and measures used. 
  • Recognition of risk in the performance of activities on the job. 
  • Performing the activities of the job properly. 


Our course consists of a theoretical and a practical part. The trainees gain knowledge of air compressor equipment. In addition, they learn how to start and stop various types of compressors. Trainees attend lectures during which they learn about OSH and fire safety regulations as well as legal acts relating to the principles of operating compressed air equipment and installations. Trainees also learn about the specific requirements for pressure vessels and UDT regulations. 


The compressor course concludes with an examination before the UDT commission. Passing the examination guarantees the certification, which is valid for 5 years. After the expiry of the validity period, there is the possibility of renewing the licence. 

Requirements for participants 

  • at least 18 years of age. 
  • no medical contraindications, 
  • minimum primary education. 

Types of compressors

  • Reciprocating compressors - the most common device for increasing the pressure of a gas, usually air. These devices can be single-stage or two-stage. With this design, a much higher tank pressure can be achieved; 
  • Screw compressors - the operating principle is to pump air by reducing the space between the rotating impellers (screws); 
  • Centrifugal compressor - Air is drawn into the centre of a rotating rotor with radial vanes and is pushed out by centrifugal forces. Before the air is led to the centre of the rotor of the next compressor stage, it passes through a diffuser, where the kinetic energy is converted into pressure.

Purpose of the course 

The aim of the course is for the participants to acquire qualifications allowing for the correct and safe operation of mobile compressors and to obtain knowledge in the field of air compressing devices. In addition, we prepare for the exam, after which you can obtain the required qualification certificates. 


Prices are set individually, depending on the number of participants and the date of the training. We have attractive discounts for organised groups! Please see our offer on the website or contact us by telephone. 

Where to find us 

In addition to our headquarters in Warsaw, we can be found in major cities throughout Poland. In the case of organised groups, we travel to our clients. We invite you to check the locations of the OSO branches on our website.
