The course prepares the professional for the API 510 exam. The course is an intensive one-week course with a heavy emphasis on the use of the codes and mathematical calculations.


API Authorized Pressure Vessel Inspectors must have a broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, repair, and alteration of pressure vessels. The API 510 Certification Preparation is designed to equip the professional with such information and understand the exam format. The course will prepare the professional with both parts of the exam, the closed and open book portion.


This is an intense course with daily homework and a final exam (similar to the API 510 exam). A study guide is issued to direct participant’s pre-class study.

Biography

Uday B. Kale is a Post Graduate Mechanical Engineer with experience in Inspection, Welding and NDE/NDT projects for last 19 years. Currently he is the technical director of M/s KUB Quality Services. He has involved in inspection, welding and NDT projects in the Middle East, Africa and India on offshore production platform and petrochemical refineries. He has vast experience in Manufacturing and In Service Inspection of Static Equipment used in Oil and Gas.

Mr. Uday is very well-versed in international Codes and Standards. He performed and led the shutdown teams in performing NDE, internal and external inspection of equipments in central processing plant, ammonia plant, FCCU, SRU, SWS and amine treating units for Code stamp facilities of ADCO, Qatar Petroleum, Oil India, QAFAC, Banagas, Al Jubail Fertilizer Company, and other various units of Refineries, Petrochemicals, Gas Plant and Fertilizer Plant and so on.

He was a lead API inspector for various shutdown and Turnaround. He was also the appointed plant inspector for BP (GUPCO) in asset integrity management, who took charge of 9 offshore production complex, 75 Satellites and Onshore process units involving Close Visual Inspection of piping, equipments, NDT co-ordination, Baseline and Corrosion Monitoring. Furthermore, as an Inspector in GASCO OAG pipeline project, he conducted and witnessed Ultrasonic Examination of first 50 production weld joints of pipeline done by PWT (Pipe Welding Technology, GMAW).
