Course Description

The ASME Plant Inspector Level 1 training course provides the fundamental principles of the inspection, assessment, and management of fixed pressure equipment. The content of the course is delivered in a systematic manner, from the inspection planning process to inspection practices and evaluation of the associated equipment. It is aimed at the upstream and downstream Petrochemical industry but is equally relevant to stakeholders from other sectors that utilize pressure equipment.This intensive course covers the in-service inspection methodologies and requirements for piping, pressure vessels, and above ground storage tanks.

Course Objectives

  • Learning the Background engineering knowledge
  • Learning the inspection role including the objectives of inspection reports
  • Learning the Statutory requirements
  • Understanding the equipment failure modes including principal stress and crack propagation
  • Explaining damage mechanisms (DMs) including fatigue and creep
  • Gaining insights into the detection of DMs including techniques of thickness measurement
  • Evaluating of degraded items including measurement of vessel peaking and distortion
  • Understanding the spesification of the equipment inspection plans including inspection frequencies
  • Learning of inspect reporting including the use of the correct technical terminology
  • Practicing skills including writing an assessed inspection plan.

Who Should Attend?

  • Inspection/Integrity/Project Engineers
  • NDT Technicians/Inspectors
  • Project/Inspection Coordinators
  • Plant Supervisors
