As a piping engineering professional, your success is predicated on a comprehensive understanding of piping systems before, during, and after installation. This learning path covers a wide variety of stages in the full life cycle of piping systems, including design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing, inspection, and fitness for service & repair assessments of piping systems. This official ASME learning path is designed to provide attendees with the key considerations, skills, and competencies to excel as a process piping engineering professional. 
This official ASME learning path consists of two courses:
Course 1: ASME B31.3 / B31.1 Practical Piping Design for Process and Power Applications
This course covers the requirements of ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code for design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing, and inspection of process piping systems. The course explores the rules for various components, which includes fittings, connections, bends, valves, and specialty components. Since these requirements are similar to that of ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code, it identifies significant and subtle differences between the two Codes. Other topics include dimensions and ratings of components, fluid service requirement for joints, piping flexibility and support, welding, heat treatment, bending and forming, brazing, and soldering, assembly, erection, examination, and inspection.

  • Schedule: This course commences at 10:30 AM and ends at 5 PM each day, with breaks scheduled throughout.

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 runs from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern each day, with breaks throughout

Who Should Attend?
This exclusive learning path is intended for engineers, contractors, inspectors and engineering management engaged in the operation, design, analysis, and maintenance of plant facilities who wish to have a better understanding of the relationship of fabrication and manufacture to design and construction of pipes, with a thorough understanding of the API/ASME fitness-for-service standard.
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.
