    About the course


       6 Live sessions

       3 Days

       Starts 7 Mar



       Limited seats


    API specification 570 covers the inspection, rating, repair, and alteration procedures for metallic and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) piping systems and their associated pressure relieving devices that have been placed in service.

    This three-day live instructor led virtual training frames the requirements from a managerial and business prospective and will provide you with a working understanding of the API 570 requirements.

    This course will teach you how to provide a continued high level of safety through the use of inspectors specialized in process piping and how to improve management control of process unit inspection, repair, alteration and rerating, hence reducing the potential for inspection delays resulting from regulatory requirements.

    The course consists of 6 online live instructor led sessions spread across three days. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

    After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.
