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. 


Upon Registration Deadline we will contact you to arrange course dates and payment.

Results

After this course, you...

  • will understand of all the information covered in the API 570 'Body of Knowledge'. This includes ASME welding requirements for pressure piping section IX and B31.3 VIII and ASME non-destructive testing principles and application of Section V.

  • will have a good overview of pressure piping design review ASME B31.3: weld sizes, pipe branch reinforcement, brittle fracture, weld efficiency factors and post weld heat treatment.

  • will be familiar with the API 570 inspection, repair and re-rating of piping practices, including inspection intervals, inspection requirements and their relationships to ASME codes.

  • will be able to perform corrosion, minimum thickness determination and remaining life calculations, knowing the degradation mechanisms of piping corrosion and cracking such as erosion, common corrodents, hydrogen and H2S damage, alloy degradation.
