Length: 43 days
From suppliers’ shops to construction sites, this advanced course details Code requirements for the design, fabrication, construction and life extension of nuclear power plants. Covering all aspects of the nuclear pressure boundary as well as the application of methods for fabrication of nuclear pressure boundary components, it provides the required skills for applying Code requirements for NDE (nondestructive examination) techniques for radiography, ultrasonic techniques and other forms of NDE. It also outlines the requirements for performing hydro testing and leak testing. Case studies examine real scenarios encountered in the nuclear industry.
This advanced course explores the requirements of Section III of the ASME B&PV code. Through a combination of information and case studies based on real-world problems, it provides the required knowledge and skills for the professionals who are involved in the design, fabrication, construction and life extension of nuclear power plant (NPP) components.
This is an online, instructor-supported course, which allows you to work at your own pace and convenience.
