INTRODUCTION:
  • Progressive corrosion deteriorates pressure retaining walls to such an extent that there is always a threat of major break down which may lead to fire or some time to explosion. To avoid such accidents API has developed systematic ways to carry out ‘In-service Inspection’ to determine rate of corrosion and the remaining life of the equipment and piping.

 

OBJECTIVES:
  • The objective of this Supplemental Inspection Certification Preparatory Training Program is to provide in-site and technical Knowledge based competence within API certified Inspectors (API 510, 570, & 653). Knowledge and expertise in the area of Corrosion and Materials based on the information contained in API RP 571 will be discussed. An API Supplemental Inspection Certification is defined as “Documentation that indicates that minimum requirements have been met for additional qualification in the designated area of expertise”. This would include an API certificate.
  • This course will prepare an Inspector to successfully complete the API 571 Suplimentory Inspector Certification Examination by thoroughly reviewing the API Recommended Practice 571. Mock examination questions, meeting the appropriate specific examination criteria, will be utilized to simulate actual API test conditions, providing an effective study base.
