ASME Plant Inspector Level 2


ASME Plant Inspector L2 – eLearning


ASME Plant Inspector Level 2 eLearning – Study in your own time: Restrictions of rotas and training dates are a thing of the past!


ASME Plant Inspector Level 2 eLearning is much the same as our original ASME level 2 course only amalgamated into an eLearning format. All of the same topics are delivered in a systematic format. The course is designed to cover the in-service processes of the pressure equipment life cycle. Primarily, it is intended to provide the knowledge to compile an Inspection Plan/Written Scheme of Examination and conducting the relevant post inspection assessments. The ASME Plant Inspector Level 2 training course introduces management and planning activities such as Risked Based Inspection and screening of pressure vessels for Non-Intrusive Inspection.

Delegates will be introduced to API 579/ASME FFS-1 and will learn how to conduct Level 1 assessments for localised and general metal loss while being provided with an insight into the applicability and limitations of such evaluations.

The course provides the necessary knowledge to make Run, Repair or Replace decisions. ASME PPC 2 is introduced to give the repair options, while API 510/570 is introduced for the re-rating procedures.



Course Suitability:

Ideal for those wishing to progress from Level 1, or for experienced inspectors and engineers looking to expand their technical knowledge, the ASME Plant Inspector Level 2 eLearning training course provides an intensive but practical challenge.

eLearning Subjects Covered:

– Pressure Equipment Design and Materials
– Damage Mechanisms and Inspection
– Inspection Planning and RBI
– Fitness for Service
– Repair Selection

eLearning Duration:

Approx. 60 hours of training with 4 months online access.

All of the same content as our 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 duration before sitting your exam.

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

The ASME eLearning exam is completed online on a date of the candidates choice. Candidates require a reliable internet connection and webcam for invigilation purposes.
