    Pressure Vessels

    Course Description

    • This training course was prepared as per API 510 pertaining to Pressure Vessel Inspector Training Course helps prepare to become a certified API 510 Pressure Vessel inspector. API 510 Inspectors must have a broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, repair, and alteration of pressure vessels. The API 510 examination is designed to determine if individuals have such knowledge.
    • Our API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector Course ensures that your certification training benefits employers and the industry by helping to:
    • Improve management control of process unit operation, repair, and maintenance
    • Reduce the potential for inspection delays
    • Provide a continued high level of safety using inspectors specialized in process piping Improve management control of the process unit inspection, repair, alteration and re-rating
    • Our API Individual Certification Programme (ICP) exam preparation training for API 510, 570, and 653 is delivered in two parts. Prior to the 5 days of classroom training, delegates will be expected to complete the 4-month eLearning training syllabus which forms a significant part of the learning programme
    • Delegates are guided through various modules which come with accompanying question sets aimed at increasing technical knowledge and code familiarity. The on-line training provides the core knowledge that we consider the minimum standard required prior to our 8-day intensive classroom course. This ensures that the course is not held up by delegates unfamiliar with the relevant code.
    Course objectives:
    • After successful completion of this session, each participant will be able to understand in depth the following pressure vessel aspects:
    • Successfully pass the API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector certification exam
