Thông tin khóa học

Từ ngày 31/07 – 07/08/2019, khai giảng khóa đào tạo “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 was designed by MSTS Inspection Training ServicesOklahoma, U.S. .
All instructors have been trained by Mark Smith (Master Trainer of MSTS) and selected for their technical and “wake-ability” skills. (“Wake-ability” – the ability to minimize snores during long, boring technical training classes)

Our students generally have a 90% passing rate in the official API 570 exam.

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 requirement

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

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

  • Inspection &PipingEngineers
  • Asset Integrity Engineers
  • Material & Corrosion Engineers
  • Welding and statuary equipment Inspectors
  • Project Engineers
  • Government Inspectors for statutory equipment

No required class pre-requisites. However, if you wish to pursue the official API Certification Exam, a minimal number of years of experience on subject matters is required depending on your educational qualifications.(Refer to the API website “Exam Qualification Requirements” at: https://www.api.org/products-and-services/individual-certification-programs/certifications/api570)

PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE A CERTIFIED API 570 INSPECTOR:
