ASME Training Courses

With the vast and in-depth coverage of the Oil & Gas and Petroleum Industry, it is essential that International Codes and Standards are in place to preserve uniform operational practices across all organisations worldwide. In line with this, many international organisations have published several inspection codes and standards.
In order for Oil & Gas professionals to remain abreast in the innovations in technology and with the new & revised inspection methodologies and best practices, PetroKnowledge is pleased to offer American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME) training courses and seminars, that focuses on the understanding of the code objectives, intents, stated and implied requirements, as well as the mandatory, recommended and optional stipulations. The training courses also aim to impart the necessary knowledge and skills to prepare the participants before taking the required examinations and certifications.
