API101 - API 570 Piping Inspector Certification Examination
(Training only) - Preparatory course (19 - 23 October 2014, Dubai)
Course Description
Who Should Attend?
This 5 days training course is designed to give a detailed discussion on the required engineering knowledge for In-service Piping Inspection (API 570) before
appearing for examination. This preparatory course
will cover the fundamental Piping Design with emphasis on syllabus published by API body for the said examination. It includes all the code sections referred by
API-570 committee to the extent required from examination point of view. This course will clarify basic intentions of all code sections, how to interpret code rulings and at the end, build-up the confidence among the
participants for taking Run, Repair, Replace decisions.
The participants will receive comprehensive course
notes, Exercises, Practical case studies, Numerical examples, Mock-examinations, Main punch-points of the
course and extensive question banks to give the participants the confidence for getting certified successfully.
This course is designed for the Inspection engineers,
plant maintenance persons and QA/QC engineers,
Plant integrity specialists who wish to appear for API
570 examination. It is equally valuable to the Engineering Consultants and Contracting Companies who
provide support services to Refining, Petrochemical
and Chemical industries in the areas of shut-down inspection, maintenance, Repairs or plant up-gradations

ing management of Creep and Fatigue damages.
n Feed water Piping in ALL Power plants-Flow Assisted Corrosion and Corrosion Fatigue
High pressure Gas Transmission Piping- Involving Microbiological Corrosion
n High Pressure Anhydrous Ammonia Piping- Involving
Stress Corrosion Cracking issues.
n High Pressure Acid Piping:- Involving severe corrosion and
flow induced erosion.
n Often integrity management program of these piping involves state of art NDE technique such as phased array UT.
The life/integrity management of above piping involves sound
application of ASME PCC-2, PCC-3, ASME B-31.1, B-31.3 ,API
-570, and EPRI guidelines. Also API RP-579/ASME-FFS Code
(Fitness for Service) is applied for piping , whenever required.
All these piping systems mentioned here involves C-Mn steel,
Various Low Alloy Steels such as P11, P22, P23, Grade-91
Steel. Also the other materials of construction are Alloy-20, 6Mo
alloys and Duplex S.S.
