Setting the Standard

Program Description

As an ASME Authorized Training Provider (ATP) you will be responsible for the On-Site – Hands-On Training portion of the ASME Bolting Specialist Qualification Program.

Since bolting is an inherent physical activity, it is essential that work skills as well as theory be taught and tested in any qualification course. 

Authorized Training Providers deliver this hands on portion in a one-day session:

  • Candidates will review, observe and demonstrate actual tool handling and safety principles under the guidance of a Authorized Training Instructor.  
  • Training day covers the application of principles and practices and demonstrates that the candidates can safely and effectively operate bolting tools and assemble functioning joints.
