Top 8 Online ASME B31 Pressure Piping System Courses

Virtual Classroom and On Demand Courses from B31 Pressure Piping Codes

ASME’s courses in B31 Pressure Piping Systems enable learners to apply knowledge related to the ASME B31 Codes to safely and properly design, manufacture, fabricate, test, install, construct, operate, and maintain pressure piping systems. With an ever-changing line-up of Virtual Classroom, Self Study, and Guided Study options, we’ve leveraged our deep history with the B31 Codes to build a collection of courses that focus on the complex decision-making and critical thinking required throughout the entire lifecycle of various piping systems using real-world situations.

Go beyond code interpretation and into the practical application of piping industry best practices with immersive courses developed and delivered by leading industry expert. Individuals and teams of engineers gain critical knowledge of the design, analysis, testing, and inspection behind power and process piping systems—while taking their professional development to the next level.

ASME has defined piping systems safety since the 1920s and continues to set the standard for B31 training with high-quality instructors delivering courses in piping design, materials, detailed design, fabrication & construction, operations, and maintenance & reliability.

From entry-level to advanced engineers, gaining knowledge of the latest B31 piping code requirements is crucial to those involved in pressure piping industries, so we have compiled a list of 9 essential piping systems courses in 2023 including a brand new course on B31.3 Process Piping as well as a new free companion Guide to B31.3 Process Piping.

1. NEW! ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code (On Demand)

Understand requirements of the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code for the analysis, testing & inspection of process piping systems in this on-demand training. This video-based course features several case studies based on industry standards, with example calculations of the fitness-for-service assessment of actual damage and the remaining life of pressure equipment.

2. ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code (Virtual Classroom)

Apply the requirements of ASME B31.3 to the design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing and inspection of process piping systems.

3. ASME B31.3 and B31.1 Practical Piping Design for Process and Power Applications (Virtual Classroom)

4. Detail Engineering of Piping System (Virtual Classroom)

Develop Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P & IDs), plot plans, and arrangements for process, power and utility equipment piping systems.

5. Failure Prevention, Fitness-for-Service, Repair and Life Extension of Piping, Vessels and Tanks (On Demand)

Learn methods and criteria of ASME B31, ASME VIII, API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, ASME PCC-2, NBIC parts 2 and 3, to make run-or-repair decisions on pressure equipment, piping, and pipelines.

6. ASME B31.8 Gas Transmission & Distribution Piping Systems (Virtual Classroom)

Gain an understanding of ASME B31.8 including design, operation, maintenance, and repair of natural gas distribution and transmission pipelines.

7. ASME B31.4 Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquid Hydrocarbons and Other Liquids (Virtual Classroom)

Adhere to principles of ASME B31.4 Code for the design, construction, and operation of liquid pipeline systems while minimizing risks.

8. Nuclear Piping Systems ASME BPV Code, Section III and B31.1: Design, Integrity-Operability Assessment, and Repairs (Virtual Classroom)

Apply ASME Section III, Division 1, Subsections NB/NC/ND to the design, analysis, and qualification of nuclear power plant piping systems.

All the above courses are IACET accredited and offer CEUs and PDHs. A Certificate of Completion is awarded when courses are successfully completed.
