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.
