API 579-1 / ASME FFS-1 Fitness-For-Service Assessments

Course Outline | Who Should Attend | Registration | In-House | On-Demand | Online Courses | PPT Slides+Testbank |Course List | Why WebCorr


 Course Overview

 

The Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments are quantitative engineering evaluations that are performed to demonstrate the structural integrity of an in-service component that may contain a flaw or damage.

 

This 5-day advanced course provides guidance for conducting FFS assessments using methodologies specifically prepared for pressurized equipment. The guidelines discussed in this course can be used to make run-repair-replace decisions to help determine if pressurized equipment containing flaws that have been identified by inspection can continue to operate safely for some period of time. These FFS assessments are currently recognized and referenced by the API Codes and Standards (510, 570, & 653), and by NB-23 as suitable means for evaluating the structural integrity of pressure vessels, piping systems and storage tanks where inspection has revealed degradation and flaws in the equipment.

 

The assessment procedures discussed in this course can be used for Fitness-For-Service assessments and/or rerating of equipment designed and constructed to the following codes:

 

a) ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 1

b) ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 2

c) ASME B&PV Code, Section I

d) ASME B31.1 Piping Code

e) ASME B31.3 Piping Code

f) API 650

g) API 620

 

This course is available for in-house training, online and distance learning worldwide. It can also be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.

 In-House Training Corrosion Courses/On-Site Training Corrosion Courses

 

If you are concerned with corrosion in your company, in-house training or on-site training is a great solution to train a group of employees from design, production, operation, quality assurance, inspection and maintenance, and technical sales and support on corrosion control and corrosion prevention technology. The contents of all our corrosion courses can be customized to fit your organization's needs.

 

There is no limit to the number of participants required for in-house training corrosion courses. We conduct the in-house training corrosion course at your company's premises worldwide, and at a time convenient to your company.

 Corrosion Course-On-Demand

 

All our publicly scheduled corrosion short courses are conducted once a year. However, you do not need to wait for one year if you have missed any of the publicly scheduled corrosion courses as we have this unique corrosion course-on-demand scheme: we will conduct the course just for you (on an one-on-one basis) or for a small group from your company at a time and in a location convenient to you. This option costs significantly less than a full-scale in-house or on-site corrosion training program.

 Online Corrosion Courses and Distance Learning Corrosion Courses

 

All our corrosion short courses are available for online or offline distance learning. You can start an online corrosion course at any time and learn at your own comfortable pace and schedule, whenever and wherever you are. You have around-the-clock access to the interactive and media-rich course materials, virtual labs, course instructions and course assessments. Discussions and questions related to the corrosion courses are posted on the website or exchanged through email for a period up to 3 months. Video conferencing or instant messaging can also be arranged for discussions of course topics. For those who do not have ready access to internet, we can send you our online course materials on a CD-ROM, or DVD, or USB flash drive for offline distance learning.

 PowerPoint Slides and Test Banks for Trainers, Instructors, Tutors, University Lecturers and Professors

 

If you are involved in teaching or training, you may wish to purchase a complete set of the trainer's package for this training course. The trainer's package comes complete with ready-to-use PowerPoint slides (fully editable) and test bank (with answer keys). These ready-to-use PowerPoint slides contain high quality color photographs, illustrations, animations, audio and video clips. The test bank contains questions conveniently grouped into four categories: (1) true or false, (2) multiple choice, (3) calculation, and (4) reasoning and open-ended discussions. The trainer's package is suitable for in-house training and university teaching (30 lecture hours). This is exactly the same package that WebCorr uses to deliver our current training course.

The one-time lump sum fee allows your organization to use the training package and also modify it. For example, your organization may modify the course contents and re-name/re-brand the course under your organization’s name. WebCorr only retains the copyright of the original PowerPoint slides and test banks.
