A World Leader In Codes and Standards Training

Codes and Standards Training Institute (CASTI) was founded in 1982 when John E. Bringas, P.Eng. taught our first course in welding metallurgy. Since then, CASTI has presented over 1,500 courses internationally, specializing in the area of engineering codes and standards (API, ASME, ASTM, CSA, NACE, ISO, and others). The CASTI instructor staff includes members of many codes and standards committees as well as globally-recognized professional engineers with international accreditations.

CASTI technical courses are developed for inspectors, engineers, technologists, designers, supervisors, maintenance, and quality assurance personnel who work for owners-users such as petrochemical plants, refineries, gas plants, power plants, oil/gas pipelines, pulp and paper mills, municipalities, or those who work for engineering procurement companies, inspection companies, fabricators, and regulators in governing jurisdictions.

Our Instructional Philosophy

To ensure the highest quality education, all CASTI courses are developed and taught by highly knowledgeable and experienced instructors, who are or have been Code committee members. As an IACET Training Provider, CASTI training ensures course development, delivery, and evaluation is in accordance with ANSI/IACET Standard 1 which is recognize world-wide. We not only teach "what" is in the Code or Standard, but more importantly, "why" it is there.
