9 - MMS - Mechanical Engineering and Material Sciences

MMS 122 - American Petroleum Institute (API) 570 (10 days)



Course Description

Based on industry-developed standards,API's Inspector Certification Programs are recognized and used with confidence worldwide. These standards have also provided an uniform platform that serves as a model for many state and government regulations. They enable inspectors to play an active role in improving industry health and safety;environmental performance; ensuring compliance and self-regulation; and strengthening management control and internal inspection capabilities.  This course aims to emphasize professional credibility and process integrity.

Course Objectives

  • Being able to understand inspection methodologies, remaining life calculations, degradation mechanisms, repair & re-rating of in-service piping system and relations to ASME codes
  • Learning principles and application of Non-Destructive Examination
  • Familiarizing with welding & brazing requirements and procedures
  • Understanding welding inspection and metallurgy recommended practices
  • Operating material verification program for new and existing alloy piping systems
  • Designing review, welding & heat treatment, inspection, leak testing of process piping
