ASME Plant Inspector Level 1

The Wilkinson and Coutts ASME Plant Inspector Level 1 training course provides the fundamental principles of inspection, assessment and management of fixed pressure equipment, also commonly known as static mechanical plant. The content of the course is delivered in a methodical manner from the inspection planning process to the inspection practices and assessment of the associated equipment. It is aimed at the upstream and downstream Petrochemical industry but is equally relevant to stakeholders from other industries that utilise pressure equipment.

This intensive course covers the in-service inspection methodologies and requirements for piping, pressure vessels and above ground storage tanks.

The ASME Plant Inspector Level 1 is an ideal course for learning the fundamentals of pressure plant and inspection. It serves as an introduction to the field for those looking at pursuing a career in plant inspection as well as giving engineers and managers a solid foundation in inspection principles.

The examination for the course is conducted on the last day of the course and is included in the cost of the course.
