COURSE OUTLINE

API 570 PIPING INSPECTOR

  • COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The API 570 Piping Inspector Certification Preparation program is designed to equip individuals with broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic piping systems.

This program is produced by MSTS Inspection Training Services in Oklahoma, U.S. All instructors trained by Mark Smith (Master Trainer of MSTS) are selected for their technical and “wake-ability” skills. (“Wake-ability” – the ability to minimize snores during long, boring technical training.) Our students generally have a 90% passing rate.

This program benefits employers and the industry as a whole by helping to:

  • Provide a continued high level of safety through the use of inspectors specialized in process piping
  • Improve management control of process unit inspection, repair, alteration and rerating
  • Reduce the potential for inspection delays resulting from regulatory requirements
  • WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Designed for piping inspectors and engineers working in refineries, chemical & industrial plants, gas plants, pipeline terminals, and oil fields.

  • Inspection / Mechanical Engineer
  • Asset Integrity Engineer
  • Material & Corrosion Engineer
  • DOSH Officer
  • Welding Inspector
  • Project Engineer
  • QA /QC / NDT Engineer
  • Quality / Safety Coordinator
  • Static Engineer, Technician

No required class pre-requisites. However, if you wish to pursue the API Certification Exam, a minimal years of experience on subject matter is required depending on your educational qualifications.

Please refer to the Exam Qualification Requirements at:  www.api.org/icp

  • PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE A CERTIFIED API 570 INSPECTOR:
