Piping Design Construction & Mechanical Integrity

  • When doing maintenance, repairs, and modifications, piping defect issues may arise. Be prepared to conduct an inspection of piping and pipeline systems in accordance with API 570 body of knowledge.

    This course ensures that plant operators, maintenance, project staffs, and inspectors are competent and knowledgeable in design piping systems as per ASME B31.3/31.4/31.8 design standards.

  • Learn and succeed anytime, anywhere!

    This training program will help engineers understand the common issues in piping and pipeline systems, learn how to use proper inspection methods such as NDT, and master the proper monitoring and inspection processes. Here are some of the topics included in this 5-day training program:
