As an engineering professional working with pressure equipment, a comprehensive understanding of the design, fabrication, inspection, and fitness-for-service of pressure equipment is essential. 
This official ASME Design, Fabrication and Fitness-for-Service of Pressure Equipment Learning Path is comprised of two self-study eLearning courses accessible via ASME’s Learning Hub. The courses provide an introduction to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1 and training in ASME B31, API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, ASME PCC-2, NBIC parts 2 and 3, and other Standards related to fitness-for-service and repairs. It is designed to equip learners with the theoretical and practical skills to excel as a pressure equipment engineering professional.

This learning path features recordings of Live Virtual Classroom sessions taught by ASME’s expert Instructors designed for learners to gain first-hand experience completing a user design requirement (UDR) form, selecting materials, identifying design load conditions, determining post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) requirements and data report preparation. This is complemented by real-world examples to understand the risk-based inspection planning process and inspection techniques for fixed equipment with example calculations for the fitness-for-service assessment of actual damage and the remaining life of pressure equipment.

By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully: 

  • Describe scope, purpose, and organization of the ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Rules for the Construction of Pressure Vessels
  • Define allowable materials, explain how to reclassify materials and identify material traceability requirements
  • Explain how to apply the Code rules to common design and fabrication situations Detect types and causes of failures
  • Make run-or-repair fitness-for-service decisions and assess how to make the right decision on equipment life extension

For the full list of learning objectives and detailed descriptions for this learning path, please click on the links to the individual courses above.
Who should attend?
This learning path is intended for engineers involved in the design, fabrication, inspection, evaluation of damage, determination of remaining life, and run-or-repair decisions on pressure equipment. It is also useful for personnel who would like to update their knowledge with the latest version of the aforementioned ASME Codes.

A Certificate of Completion will be issued to registrants who successfully complete each course in this Design, Fabrication and Fitness-for-Service of Pressure Equipment Learning Path.
