The course is based on API RP 580 Risk-Based Inspection and API Publication 581, Base Resource Document. The course first explains feasible means and alternatives for achieving a successful RBI program without undue complications. This course deals with RBI framework and methodology in a simple straight forward manner to establish and implement a risk-based inspection program best suited for the company objectives.


Its utility is based on the premise that a few vital equipments in a process plant contribute a majority of the risk. Consequently, if these few equipments can be identified, then testing and inspection can be focused on them rather than several low-risk items. RBI helps to prioritize their equipment for inspection, optimize inspection methods and frequencies, and develop effective inspection plan commensurate with the risk contribution and equipment condition.


The course is focused on methodology of actual implementation of RBI in Oil and Gas industry. It covers advanced knowledge of RBI implementation in addition to the knowledge required for passing the Certification Examination. The candidates should possess at least one certification out of API 510, API 570 or API 653 certifications.


With Mr. Uday Kale’s extensive involvements in the facilities inspection, as well as his practical coaching and mentoring approaches, this course not only prepare the candidates to pass API 580 examination with confident, it will also advance the helps the participants broaden the technical knowledge base in order to avoid unplanned shutdown and reduce expenses!
