API 570 - Piping Inspector Course Online Training

Chintamani M. Khade

American Petroleum Institute (API) Piping Inspection Code 570 Inspection, Repair, Alteration, and Rerating of In-Service Piping Systems 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 system is 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 enables 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 B16.5/ B31.3, 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. Uday'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 examination 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!
