API 570 - Piping Inspector Course

Chintamani M. Khade

API 570 Piping Inspector Course is a comprehensive training program that equips you with the necessary skills and knowledge to assess the integrity of piping systems in various industrial settings. It covers critical aspects such as inspection techniques, codes, and standards.

The course is in line with the American Petroleum Institute (API) Piping Inspection Code 570 Inspection, Repair, Alteration, and Rerating of In-Service Piping Systems as it is recognized and used with confidence worldwide.

The Piping Inspector Certification Program (PICP) is developed for the continual high level of efficiency and safety by emphasizing professional credibility and process integrity.

Process piping systems are one of the critical production assets in the process industry. Organizations recognize the need to maintain an authorized inspection agency and technically assess qualified piping engineers and inspectors to ensure facilities are at top performance.

Therefore, API 570 Certification is one of the most sought-after professional competencies that enable piping inspectors to be actively involved in the improvement of industry & environmental health and safety performance, reinforcement management control, and compliance with inspection capabilities.

This 5-day Piping Inspector course is based on API 570/574, API RP 577/ 578, ASME B31.3/B16.5, and ASME BPVC Section V/ Section IX. It is to promote the recognition of fitness-for-service concepts to evaluate the in-service degradation of piping systems.

With Mr. Chintamani's extensive involvement in the facilities inspection, as well as his practical coaching and mentoring approaches, this course not only prepare the candidates to pass the API 570 Exam with confidence but will also advance the appreciation of piping facilities and thus broaden the technical knowledge base in order to avoid an unplanned shutdown and reduce expenses!
