Basic Information About the Training.. 

What does this training cover?

This course is designed to introduce individuals responsible for the purchase, use, or control of metallic alloy materials; the owner/user, vendors, fabricators, or contractors to the guidelines for a material and quality assurance system.

It will instruct them how to verify that the nominal composition of alloy components within the pressure envelope of a piping system is consistent with the selected or specified construction materials in an effort to minimize the potential for catastrophic release of toxic or hazardous liquids or vapors.

In addition, course materials will review guidelines for material control and material verification on ferrous and nonferrous alloys during the construction, installation, maintenance, and inspection of new and existing process piping systems covered by the ASME B31.3 and API 570 piping codes.
