ASME Plant Inspector L1 – eLearning

Study in your own time: Restrictions of rotas and training dates are a thing of the past with our new ASME Plant Inspector Level 1 – eLearning

This eLearning course covers the same content as our traditional classroom based course only amalgamated into an eLearning format. The same topics are delivered in an easy digestible manner. The ASME Plant Inspector Level 1 training course provides the fundamental principles of the inspection, assessment and management of fixed pressure equipment.

It is aimed at the upstream and downstream Petrochemical industry but is equally relevant to stakeholders from other sectors that utilise pressure equipment.

Course Suitability:

A particularly invaluable course for;

– NDT Technicians/Inspectors
– Inspection/Integrity/Project Engineers
– Technical Assistants
– Project/Inspection Coordinators
– Plant Supervisors

Still not sure, have a look over a detailed explanation of the ASME Plant Inspector Certificate here.

eLearning Subjects Covered:

– Introduction/Reasons for Inspection
– Risk Based Inspection (RBI)
– Engineering Materials and Basic Design Principles
– In-Service Piping Monitoring
– In-Service Pressure Vessel Monitoring
– Useful Remaining Life Assessments
– In-Service Storage Tank Inspection
– Testing and Examination
– Inspection Plans

eLearning Duration:

Approx. 40 hours of training with 3 month online access.

All of the same content as our 4-day classroom course however with more time, so you can work your way through each topic comfortably at your own pace. This means plenty time to return to each module and revise till your heart (or brain!) is content. You can arrange to sit your exam as soon as you feel confident, you do not have to wait till the end of your online training access before sitting your exam.

When & Where Do I Sit The ASME Examination On Completion Of eLearning?
