API 577 Welding Inspection And Metallurgy


API 577 Welding Inspection & Metallurgy Course – 3 months of online training in preparation for the API 577 examination

The objective of the API 577 Welding Inspection and Metallurgy Course is to provide preparation for those is wishing to undertake API 577 certification. This is to provide documented evidence of advanced knowledge and expertise in the area of Welding Inspection and Metallurgy based on the information contained in API RP 577.

API 577 training course is an excellent reference code covering several welding techniques, basic metallurgy, and inspection methods. This valuable qualification demonstrates that inspectors, welders, engineers or QA/QC personnel have obtained excellent knowledge in welding processes.

The course provides an understanding of the welding requirements for fabrication, inspection, and testing requirements of ASME Codes for new construction and how they work with API Codes for post-construction inspection, repairs, and alterations.

It provides the process, oil, gas, petrochemical, and other process industries with the assurance that personnel trained and certified under this internationally recognized program have the required knowledge and experience for the job in the field.

The training is conducted online with lecturer support when required.


The API 577 training course provides participants with the knowledge necessary to pass the exam and includes:

  • Welding inspection
  • Welding processes
  • Welding procedures
  • Welding materials
  • Welder qualification
  • Welding procedure review
  • Non-Destructive Examination
  • Metallurgy
  • Refinery and Petrochemical plant welding issues
  • Terminology and symbols
  • Actions to address improperly made production welds

The content in this course is covered in many of the ‘core’ API inspector certifications such as API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector, API 570 Piping Inspector and API 653 Storage Tank Inspection.
