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:

  • Welding procedures specifications
  • Welding procedure qualifications
  • Welder and welder operator performance qualifications
  • Welding Essential, nonessential and Supplementary Essential variables
  • Testing required for qualification PQR and WPQ
  • Welding limitation thickness, diameter and positions for welder
  • Identify the P number &F number and A number
  • Explain the welding process

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

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

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.

Accreditation

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.
