ASME’s B31.1 Code on Power Piping is widely adopted by jurisdictions worldwide and applicable to various power plants, despite the energy source, including traditional hydrocarbon service or alternate sources such as solar and geothermal. Further it also specifies engineering requirements deemed necessary throughout the entire lifecycle at a power plant including safe and effective power piping design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
As a power piping engineering professional at various power plants, your success is predicated on a comprehensive understanding of power piping systems before, during, and after installation. This end-to-end learning path covers design & failures, materials, fabrication, examination, and testing—as well as thorough understanding of the ASME B31.1 code requirements and background. Safe and proper application of the B31.1 Code and insight into industry best practices from this learning path will help piping engineers to not only comply with regulations but succeed in achieving the operational, reliability, regulatory, cost, and safety goals of their organization. This official ASME learning path is designed to provide attendees with the key considerations, skills, and competencies to excel as a power piping engineering professional.  

This official ASME learning path consists of two courses:

Course 1:  ASME B31.1 Power Piping Design (Virtual Classroom)  Learn expert-provided insight into the code background, rules and trends in power piping design and analysis including design criteria, requirements and failure modes per ASME B31.1.

  • Course Schedule: this course commences at 9:30 AM and end a 3:30 PM Eastern each day.

Course 2:  ASME B31.1 Power Piping Materials Fabrication, Examination, Testing & Maintenance- (Virtual Classroom) Explore the background, rules and trends in power piping with a deep focus industrial and institutional power plant construction and maintenance per ASME B31.1.

  • Schedule: This course runs from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern, each day, with breaks throughout.

Who should attend?

  • Engineers within the piping design and analysis field.
  • Practicing piping engineers requiring background on Code compliance and trends in piping design and analysis.
  • Piping fabricators and suppliers wishing to understand the relationship of fabrication and manufacture to the design, construction, and maintenance of piping systems.
  • QA/QC personnel

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.  Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.
