Managing risk is a essential part of operating a facility or production process safely and cost effectively. The API RP 580 introduces the steps needed in an Risk Based Inspection (RBI) program and provides guidance on how to implement these in practice.

This 3 day instructor led virtual training course provides participants with a clear and thorough understanding of the basic elements for developing, implementing and sustaining an effective Risk Based Inspection (RBI) program as defined in API RP 580. The training course starts with the definition of RBI and explains the key elements. Participants are then shown how to implement RBI and how the RBI program once established can be sustained long term.

The course consists of 6 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.
