API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector Certification Preparatory

Objectives:-

  • This program will help industries to continually improve and ensure safety through the use of owner/user or third party inspectors specialized in pressure equipment. The course thoroughly reviews API Publications such as API-510, API CERT 571, API RP-572, API RP-576, API CERT 577 and API IRE Chapter II. Inspectors are certified to inspect refining and petrochemical pressure vessels in accordance with API Standard 510, Pressure Vessel Inspection Code Maintenance, Inspection, Rating, Repair and Alternation.
  • The certification program promotes self-regulation and establishes a uniform national program that will assist state and local governments in pressure vessel regulations. Specific examination criteria simulating actual API test conditions will be utilized, providing an effective study base.
