CSA W178.2 Level 1

Welding Inspector Exam Preparation

Limited Seating
Date: March 14-19, 2016
Location: Calgary, AB

This course will assist exam candidates achieve the CSA W178.2 Level 1 Welding Inspector Certification. It is also the objective of this course to prepare exam candidates to write the ASME B31.3 code endorsement exam as part of this certification.

This course is approved by the Canadian Welding Bureau to qualify exam candidates for exemption from the closed-book Welding Inspection exam of the CSA W178.2 Level 1 Welding Inspector Certification. To qualify for exemption, students must:

  • complete the pre-classroom online lessons covering Welding Inspection, including answering all questions, prior to writing the Welding Inspection closed-book (2 hr) in-classroom exam on the last day of the in-classroom training.

  • receive a minimum mark of 70% on the pre-classroom online Welding Inspection questions.

  • receive a minimum mark of 70% on the in-classroom Welding Inspection closed-book (2 hr) exam administered by CASTI on the last day of the in-classroom training.

NOTE: CASTI provides this course to help candidates prepare for the CSA W178.2 Level 1 Welding Inspector Certification. However, this course is a separate entity from the examinations. The CSA W178.2 exams are administered by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB). All exam candidates must apply directly with CWB to write the exams.

Welding Fundamentals

for Engineers, Inspectors and Experienced Tradesmen

Date: February 23-26, 2016
Location: Calgary, AB

This course will introduce some common welding and cutting processes, AWS filler metal specifications, types of welding discontinuities and the related ASME Section V requirements for NDE, as well as the QA systems necessary for welder performance qualification as described in the Alberta Welding Examiner Syllabus for Papers #1 and #3. This course is also an excellent learning experience for people seeking general knowledge in welding and related NDE.

Additionally: This course is approved by the Canadian Welding Bureau to qualify candidates, in part, for the knowledge requirements (Clause 6.4.3) of the CSA W47.1 Welding Engineer.

CSA Z662 Sour Service

Introduction to Sour Service Pipelines

Date: March 21-22, 2016
Location: Calgary, AB

Understand material, fabrication, inspection and testing requirements for new CSA Z662 sour service pipelines. This course focuses on Clause 16, but also discusses certain other sour service requirements found in Clauses 3 through 10, Clause 14, Alberta pipeline legislation, Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) directives, and CSA Z245 material standards. To support understanding of the requirements, there will be supplementary discussion of sour service damage mechanisms, steelmaking, casting, rolling, pipe and component manufacturing, mechanical testing, HIC tests, SSC tests, bending, welding, carbon equivalent, heat treatment, nondestructive examination, and MTR reviews. NACE MR0175 / ISO 15156 will be introduced in the context of Clause 16.4.2.2, but a detailed review of this standard is outside the scope of the course.

Basic pressure design will be reviewed to support discussion of location factors, stress level limitations, and mechanical properties, but attendees should appreciate that this is not a pipeline design course. Pipeline hydraulics, stress analysis, fracture control theory, CRA pipelines, high temperature pipelines, alternative weld acceptance criteria, existing pipeline fitness-for-service, and external corrosion protection will not be covered.

"I think that the way CASTI courses are presented is essential for practising, professional engineers in Alberta dealing with mechanical design, fabrication and construction. CASTI provides a great service to Alberta which is obvious by out of province people who attend the courses."
