The design requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 will be explained and the application of those requirements demonstrated through example problems. General, material, and fabrication requirements with related documentation will be covered. The participants will not only gain the knowledge for design of safe and economical vessels, they will also learn how to pick proper materials, avoid common fabrication problems, and prepare data reports. A number of important Code Cases, which will result in more economical construction will be introduced. The latest Code revisions and the work being performed on future revisions will be reviewed.
Individuals involved with the purchase, design, fabrication, or inspection of pressure vessels. (Engineers, designers, fabrication personnel, QA supervisors, and inspectors who work for pressure vessel owners, fabricators, inspection companies, EPC's and government agencies.) Some degree of technical background will be helpful, but individuals are not required to have an engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter.
CASTI is recognized by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs), under the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard, for good practices and quality continuing education and training programs.
Each participant will receive a CASTI certificate of completion and 3.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for attending all 4-days of the classroom training.
