Robert clearly has substantial experience and excellent recall of the Code! He is very competent at explaining application of the Code and provides examples. Very good course!
On ASME B31.3 IPPCDR, October 2015
Excellent course! This is the third course I have taken with CASTI and I have been satisfied with each course and how they were presented!
On Welding Fundamentals, September 2015
I felt more confident with this exam (API 510), due to the material presented by CASTI than I did when I did API 570 (through another organisation).
on API 510 Exam Prep, August 2016
Course content was very good and thorough. The instructor was excellent and the "star of the show" with practical examples and suggestions of thought processes.
on API 579, June 2016
I always enjoy CASTI training classes as I know I come out with knowledge beyond the Code study material.
on CSA Z662 Sour Service, March 2016
Unbelievable how much I learned and understand from the course in such a short time. The training material will benefit me for years to come.
on ASME Sec. IX, April 2016
Overall great course, instructor was very knowledgeable and his industry experience was a great benefit to the course.
on API 571, November 2016
Overall excellent course, provided great insight to Sec VIII and practical applications.
on ASME Sec. VIII-1, FCR, May 2016
I like the history and background understanding conveyed by the instructor. It improved my overall understanding of the topics. Good course!
on ASME B31.3: FCR, April 2016
I really appreciate the online studies, being able to reset the lessons. The amount of practice questions is fantastic. Overall great experience!
on API 570, September 2016
After 30 years in the trade I finally received training on the procedural requirements of what I do daily. Engineering and trades rarely meet in my experience. This information would be most beneficial at the trade school level. Periodic discussions with our engineering department would further the trades understanding of this material.

About ASTM International
Committed to serving global societal needs, ASTM International positively impacts public health and safety, consumer confidence, and overall quality of life. We integrate consensus standards – developed with our international membership of volunteer technical experts – and innovative services to improve lives… Helping our world work better.
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. Many of our instructors are or have been Code committee members.
CASTI has also been accredited as an IACET Authorized Provider for more than 10 years, in compliance with the ANSI/IACET Standard that is recognized internationally as a standard of good practice. To achieve this accreditation, all CASTI course content and learning management systems are designed, developed, instructed, and assessed by highly knowledgeable and experienced instructors and instructional designers to meet the strict requirements of the ANSI/IACET Standard. As an IACET Authorized Provider, CASTI offers IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for all of its training courses.
At CASTI, we not only teach "what" is in the Code or Standard, but more importantly, "why" it is there and “how” to apply it in industry.
CASTI Publishing Inc.
CASTI Publishing Inc. was launched in 1992 with the release of the CASTI Metals Black Book - North American Ferrous Data, a metals data book which has sold over 20,000 copies in more than 80 countries worldwide. We now publish the CASTI Metals Data Book Series (2 volumes), the CASTI Handbook Book Series (4 volumes), and the CASTI Guidebook Series to the ASME Codes (4 volumes).
