Overview od Design Requirements, Manufacturing,

Inspection, and Certification According to

ASME Code Section VIII Div. 1, 2015 Edition

Training Duration: 14 hours total (2 days x 7 hours)

(Certificate of Attendance will be provided)

The ASME Code, Section VIII, Division 1, 2015 edition, among others subject to the Canadian Code CSA
B51 (Boiler Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code), contains all the design requirements,
manufacturing, inspection, and certification for all pressurized tanks.

The objective of this training is to understand all the requirements related to materials, design,
manufacture, inspection, non-destructive testing, heat treatments, and certification related to the ASME
Code, Section VIII, Division 1, 2015 edition (interpretations included).
