This combo includes two courses, scheduled in half-day and full day segments. Find detailed schedules and information on the individual course product pages. 
 
Routine and thorough fitness-for-service and repair assessments of your facility’s pressure equipment is critical to ensuring safety, reducing costs, and ideally, extending the life of your assets. These assessments require a multi-disciplinary engineering approach and a wide-range of skills and knowledge on various methods, criteria and standards including ASME B31, ASME VIII, API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, ASME PCC-2, NBIC parts 2 and 3, among others.
 
Together, the two courses in this official learning path unpack the complexities of fitness-for-service and repair assessments by providing an overview of industry recommended practices with a special focus on the API579-1/ASME FFS-1 standard. You will learn methods, skills, and best practices to analyze, evaluate, and monitor equipment for continued operation and make run-or-repair decisions for in-house pressure vessels, piping, and tanks.
 
This official ASME learning path consists of two courses:

Course 1: Failure Prevention, Fitness-for-Service, Repair and Life Extension of Piping, Vessels and Tanks This course brings together the methods and criteria of ASME B31, ASME VIII, API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, ASME PCC-2, NBIC parts 2 and 3, and other standards related to fitness-for-service and repairs to make run-or-repair decisions on degraded pressure equipment, piping, and pipelines.

  • Course Schedule: The course commences at 10 AM and ends at 2 PM Eastern each day

Course 2: API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Fitness-For-Service Evaluation
This course helps participants understand and apply the API/ASME fitness-for-service standard in their daily work. The material presented in the course shows how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment.

  • Schedule: this course commences at 9:30 AM and ends at 6 PM each day, over three days

Who Should Attend?
This exclusive learning path is intended for engineers, inspectors and engineering management engaged in the operation, design, analysis, and maintenance of plant facilities. 
 

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.
