This is a shortened version of our two-day course; highlights will be presented to provide the basic understanding of the fabrication, inspection and testing portions of ASME B31.3 for construction. Updates from the new 2012 version of the code are NOW included. An important part of achieving these objectives is covering the ProvincialRegulations that ABSA, TSASK or BCSA administer. The regulatory forms for design registration, completion of construction, data reports, and others will be reviewed. The course also includes an introduction to ASTM material standards and a brief introduction to ASME Section IX - Welding Qualifications. The jurisdictional boundaries between pipeline and facility pressure piping will be addressed. Practical field examples will be discussed.
