API 570 Preparatory Course – Piping Inspector Certification – 7 Days

This course is designed to maximize your success in passing the API 570 piping inspector certification. The API piping inspector examination course is also beneficial for piping design, maintenance, fabrications, repairs, operations, engineering, and inspection departments.

The 7 days API 570 piping inspector examination preparation course gives a broad knowledge about “In-Service Piping Systems” and emphasis on the use of the related ASME codes and calculations.

Our API 570 training course enables inspectors to perform an active role in improving your industry health and safety, environmental performance, ensuring compliance, strengthening management control and internal inspection capabilities.

Vegas Consulting helps you to understand the API 570 inspection requirements, deep insights of ASME and API codes during the examination.

Upon completion of the API 570 preparatory course, participants will be able to:

  • Improve process piping systems, unit inspection, repair, alteration, maintenance, and re-rating
  • Reduce the potential for inspection delays from regulatory requirements
  • Maintain a continued high-level of safety through the use of inspectors specialized in process pressure piping
  • Apply the best practices to the maintenance of pressure piping inspection, and components
