ASME Section VIII, Division 1
Materials, Fabrication, Inspection, and Testing Requirements
Course Type: HYBRID
Date: June 3-6, 2014
Location: Calgary, Alberta


This is an introductory course to provide a basic understanding of the fabrication, inspection and testing portions of ASME Section VIII Division 1. Principals of design will be discussed, but not in sufficient detail that this course can be considered a design course for new construction. ASME Section VIII, Division 1 deals with new construction, however, in this course the application of the principals expressed in the Code will be extrapolated to deal with operation and maintenance issues and how they work with API 510 for post construction inspection, repairs and alterations. The course also includes a brief introduction to ASME Section II Part A (Ferrous Material Standards) and to ASME Section IX - Welding Qualifications.

Did You Know: This course is also useful do individuals with limited API and ASME Code experience but wish to pursue an API inspector certification in the future of their career. For more career advice, please visit our CASTI Career Path.
