ASTM International, Codes and Standards Training Institute (CASTI) Launch API 510 ICP e-Learning Course

Today, ASTM International in partnership with the Codes and Standards Training Institute (CASTI), launched the API 510 ICP Certification Preparation e-learning course to help people pass the API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector ICP exam. This is the first ASTM|CASTI e-Learning Series - Certification Prep course, with API 570 Piping Inspector ICP and API 653 Storage Tank Inspector ICP to follow.

The course will teach participants topics in the API 510 ICP Body of Knowledge, which code documents are required, and how to navigate code documents to find necessary information.

Specifically, participants will learn to:

  • identify responsibilities for various roles, including: owner/user organization, engineer, repair organization, inspector, and examiners;
  • perform calculations involving thickness measurements, inspection intervals, and vessel integrity;
  • evaluate welding procedures and qualification based on ASME Section IX, and
  • determine code requirements for nondestructive examination.

The course, with live session options available, is designed for individuals that have applied, or been accepted, to take the exam.

ASTM International is recognized by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs). This e-learning course offers 8.0 CEUs that equal 80 professional development hours.

ASTM International announced the partnership with CASTI last year. The ASTM-CASTI e-Learning Series allows customers to study at their own pace on any device, with easy to learn step-by-step explanations of codes and standards. CASTI’s role in the partnership is to provide training content and subject matter expertise through its 29 years of experience training people worldwide on codes and standards for a number of industries.

API 579-1/ASME FFS-1
Limited Seats!


October 2-5
Calgary, AB

This course will discuss the basic and intermediate methodologies of inspecting and assessing equipment for continued service, the need for more advanced evaluations, and the possible remediation available will be discussed in accordance with the methodologies given in API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. A limited discussion will be presented on advanced methods of assessment.

The role of the inspector in gathering data and evaluating that data will be discussed as will be the role of the technologist and engineer in appraising the data and employing it in engineering calculations.

This course is ideal for inspectors, engineers, and technologists who are involved in performing API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 evaluations, inspecting and analyzing pressure vessels, pressure piping, tanks and pipelines for safe operation when there is a change in service temperature, or where they have been found to be damaged, distorted, cracked, blistered, or experiencing metal loss.


ASME B31.3 Code Design Requirements for Process Piping

For Engineers and Designers

October 9-12
Calgary, AB

This is an introductory level design course and the discussion includes an overview of piping flexibility (i.e., stress) analysis requirements but it is not intended to provide detailed instruction on flexibility analysis requirements.

Due to the importance of the Oil and Gas Industry in Alberta, there will be a focus on local Alberta requirements but the course may touch on certain requirements in other jurisdictions as well.

This course is ideal for Engineers, technologist, and designers – working for Owners, EPCs, inspection firms, fabricators, and repair/maintenance organizations who are involved with ASME B31.3 piping systems.
