After taking this course, you will gain specific insight into how to use Section XI to save millions of dollars in plant operating costs. Covering all aspects of Section XI, this course highlights repair, replacement, modification, and maintenance activities; pressure testing; and the relationship between the Code and regulatory and enforcement requirements. It addresses many controversial issues facing the nuclear industry and presents a broad spectrum of opinions regarding practical application of Code requirements.

Course materials include many published ASME Interpretations that explain how Code requirements can be applied to problems that have confronted other companies. The course also highlights significant changes in the Code requirements in the last ten to fifteen years.

The course is designed to provide an introduction to Section XI for people who are not familiar with it and to give experienced Section XI users an entirely new understanding of some of the confusing and controversial parts of Section XI. 

You Will Learn to:
 - Explain in-service inspection requirements for Class 1, 2, and 3 systems, components, and supports, and steel and concrete containment vessels
 - Describe requirements for qualification of nondestructive examination personnel and performance of nondestructive examination
 - Explain basic requirements for flaw evaluation and acceptance
 - Identify Section XI requirements for repair, replacement, modification, maintenance activities, and pressure testing
 - Explain how to use recent revisions to Section XI to your advantage
