HOUSTON, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlas API Training's new online welding training course greatly reduces the learning curve associated with becoming a welding quality control professional in the petro chemical and power industries. According to Hannon McLeod, president of Atlas API Training, "There is a growing need for this expertise across the industry, Quality control inspectors have always required a great deal of on the job training to attain the knowledge and experience required to become skilled at this craft. The creation of this online course will greatly reduce the amount of on-the-job training required to become a productive quality control inspector."
The course covers topics such as Inspection Packages, Inspection and Test Plans, the reading and interpreting of Isometric Drawings and Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams. It also covers the making and filling out of Weld Maps and Flange Maps, the basics of the Industry Standard ASME Section IX, Welding Procedure, and Welder Performance Qualification. Material Test Reports for welding consumables, as well as construction materials like Pipe and fittings will be highlighted. Even items normally covered by the Client Engineering Specifications will be discussed.
Atlas API Training provides online training courses on the API 510 Pressure Vessels Inspection, API 570 Pressure Piping Inspection, and API 653 Storage Tank Inspection. There are several classes that are presently in development, such as the API 1169, API 580, API 936, and Introduction to Petroleum Geology. The online format allows a student to study anywhere with an internet connection.
