API 570 ICP
Piping Inspector Exam Preparation
API ICP exam candidates are expected to have a broad base of general
knowledge and experience covering all topics described in the
API 570 Body of Knowledge.
This course is designed to maximize your success
in passing the API Piping Inspector Certification Examination by teaching you to:
- understand what the
API 570 Body of Knowledge requires exam candidates to know;
- efficiently reference the API and ASME Codes during the API ICP examination; and
- complete all calculations required of exam candidates during the API ICP examination.
To give exam candidates the best chance to successfully pass the API 570 ICP
examination, this training course includes practice exams and an online component that is designed to simulate the actual computer-based API 570 examination experience. Completion of the
e-learning portion of the course is required prior to attending the classroom.

API RP 571
Damage Mechanisms Affecting Fixed Equipment in the Refining Industry
This course is intended to help attendees improve safety, reliability,
and minimize liability of fixed equipment by learning common damage mechanisms in the refining and petrochemical industry as covered in API RP 571.
To introduce the concepts of service-induced deterioration and failure
modes, this course will cover the roles of the engineer and inspector in identifying:
- affected materials and equipment,
- critical factors,
- appearance of damage,
- prevention and mitigation, and
- inspection and monitoring.
An introduction to carbon, alloy, and stainless steel metallurgy will
be included to facilitate the understanding of these concepts.
This course is intended for all individuals interested in gaining a
fundamental understanding of damage mechanisms in metals. It is ideal for engineers, inspectors, designers, and experienced maintenance personnel who are involved in designing,
operating, maintaining, repairing, inspecting and analyzing pressure vessels, piping, tanks and pipelines for safe operations in the refining, petrochemical and other related industries.
It will also assist with API 579 and API 580 evaluations and benefit API 571 ICP exam candidates.

Welding Procedure Development Using ASME IX
for Engineers, Quality Managers, Inspectors, and Experienced Tradesmen
This course will introduce fundamental welding principles, examine arc
welding processes, review steel metallurgy, heat treatment, and non-destructive examination. Various workshops will review the processes for development / review of welding procedure
specifications (WPS) using ASME Section IX and related ASME Pressure Equipment Codes. “Hands-on” visual examination of weld samples will provide practical experience to evaluate weld
flaws to ASME Code requirements. This course is an excellent learning experience for people seeking general knowledge in welding engineering principles and detailed understand of welding
procedure development, review and practical implementation.
Inspectors, welders, welding supervisors, quality control personnel,
technologists, and engineers involved with welding for new fabrication, repairs, maintenance, and inspection for pressure vessel or piping. This course is also designed to assist Alberta
Welding Examiner applicants, although it is not a prerequisite that you be an exam candidate.
