Why Choose this Training Course?

ASME Section IX requirements relate to the qualification of welders, welding operators, brazers, and brazing operators and the procedures used in welding and brazing. This PetroKnowledge training course further establishes the basic criteria for welding and brazing requirements that affect procedure and performance.

ASME Section IX is a supplemental code. The requirements of ASME Section IX apply when referenced by the governing code or standard. It is usually referenced in other sections of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and ASME B31 Pressure Piping Code.

This training course will feature:


Training Objectives

What are the Goals?  

The aim of this PetroKnowledge training course is to provide the delegates enough knowledge and skills in the ASME IX for welding and brazing qualifications:

  • Identify the Welding and Brazing procedures specifications, qualifications and the Welder and welder operator performance qualifications
  • Explain the welding process and requirements
  • Receive the enough information about the test required for Procedure Qualification Record (PQR) and Welder Performance Qualification (WPQ)
  • Identify the ASME P-Numbers, F-Numbers and A-Numbers
  • Explain the welding position and the limitation related to the welder and the procedure qualification

Target Audience

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is designed for:

  • Those interested in ASME IX for welding and brazing qualifications
  • QA/QC inspectors
  • Maintenance, inspection testing Engineers
  • Welding professionals
  • Fabrication Engineers
  • QA/QC Reliability professionals in oil and gas (Petrochemical and Refining) operations

Training Methods

How will this Training Course be presented?

This training course will be conducted along workshop principles with highly proven interactive adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises and ample opportunities for discussion and sharing of experiences. The course instructor may modify the above training methodology before or during the course for technical reasons with no prior notice to participant.
