Courses Objective
This training course designed to train individuals who are interested in obtaining the API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector Certification, as well as those who are seeking a better understanding of API 510 Standards, ASME Section VIII and IX code requirements. The course provides participants with the knowledge necessary to:

  • Successfully pass to API 510 pressure vessel inspector certification exam.
  • Effectively use major codes: ASME B&PV Sections V, VIII, & IX.
  • Perform all basic vessel calculations needed for the API exam (e.g. thin, test pressure, MAWP, static head, MDMT, corrosion rates, remaining life, etc.)
  • Use API’s requirements during inspection, repairs, and alterations of pressure vessels.
  • Review welding procedures (WPS/PQR) and welder performance qualifications (WPQ).

Who is Eligible
Personnel involved in Pressure Vessels, interacting with Inspectors, Quality Managers, Plant Engineer, Supervisors and other interested persons. Individuals responsible for evaluating the mechanical integrity of in-service pressure vessels in process plant applications and Managers responsible for implementing a pressure vessel maintenance program and desire an understanding of applicable evaluation procedures. This class is also designed for pressure equipment inspectors and engineers working in refineries, chemical & industrial plants, gas plants, pipeline terminals, and oil fields.
