As an engineering professional working with pressure equipment, your success is predicated on a comprehensive understanding of pressure vessel systems before, during, and after installation. This end-to-end learning path covers design, materials, fabrication, examination, and testing requirements found in the current ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1.

The proper application of Section VIII, Division 1 codes and insight into industry best practices from this learning path will help pressure equipment engineering professionals to comply with these rules and succeed in achieving the operational, and regulatory 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 pressure vessel engineering professional. 

This official ASME learning path consists of two courses, which runs for seven days over two weeks: 

ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Design and Construction (Virtual Classroom): ASME’s BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1 course is a comprehensive introduction to Code requirements based on the current Section VIII, Div 1 rules for pressure vessel design and construction.

  • Schedule: The course commences at 10:30 AM and ends at 3:30 PM Eastern each day, with breaks scheduled throughout.

Inspection, Repair and Alterations of In-Service Pressure Equipment (Virtual Classroom): Focusing specifically on in-service pressure equipment, this course introduces attendees to the requirements of various codes and standards, and highlights inspection, repairs and alterations of in-service pressure equipment, and in particular, pressure vessels.

  • February - June Schedule The course commences at 10:30 AM and ends at 3:30 PM Eastern each day, with breaks scheduled throughout.

This course is taught by a rotating pool of instructors including the following experts listed in alphabetical order below.  

Hugo Julien, P.Eng., began his career, in the field of pressure equipment, pipeline and storage tanks, as Designer and Quality Manager at HC Vidal Ltd., (1998 to 2002) a pressure equipment and boiler manufacturer. He then worked as Quality Systems Manager at Xebec, Inc. (2002 to 2007) another pressure equipment manufacturer. From 2007 to 2019, he has been the Mechanical Integrity Advisor at GCM Consultants, an engineering firm. Since January 2019, he has been working for CEP Forensic as a Forensic Engineer, where he investigates the causes of rupture, leakage, explosion, etc. 

An active associated member CSA B51, he is a certified API 510, API 570, API 571, and CSA W178.2 Level II (CSA B31.3, ASME W47.1/W59, and CSA Z662) inspector. Mr. Julien graduated from l'École Polytechnique of Montréal (1997) in Mechanical Engineering.

Ramesh Tiwari, P.E., is an ASME member and a specialist in the areas of pressure vessels, heat exchangers, and storage tanks.  He is recognized for his expertise with the ASME Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2 (pressure vessels), NBIC and API 510 (repair and alteration of pressure vessels), TEMA and API 660 Standards (shell and tube heat exchangers), and API 650 and API 620 Standards (storage tanks).  Ramesh holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering and is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas and Maryland. 

Ramesh has over 25 years of experience across a variety of projects and disciplines, such as mechanical design of pressure vessels and storage tanks, thermal and mechanical design of shell and tube heat exchangers, fatigue analysis of pressure vessels, fitness-for-service evaluations to assure structural integrity of equipment, and owner’s engineer for procurement of pressure vessels and heat exchangers. He is also the editor-in-chief of “Fixed Equipment Newsletter,” which is read widely and respected worldwide since 2007.
