Plant integrity management training - an update

Description: Plant integrity management training - an update As mentioned in our June 2011 newsletter, the Plant Integrity management training has been restructured and now comes under the CSWIP Plant Inspection Levels 2 and 3 training programme.

The training is predominately based around asset integrity management skills, focusing on inspection and maintenance planning, integrity assessment and repair based around API and ASME standards and best practice.

TWI held the first pilot training course in September at their Abington training centre in the UK. The training covered four of the seven available modules that make up the CSWIP Plant Inspection Levels 2/3 programme. The four modules were: (Damage Mechanism Assessment , Risk Based Inspection, Fitness-for-Service and Weld Repair of Pressure Equipment).

The course was well attended with an average of 16 students on each module; the students' feedback was positive - they found the training very intensive but agreed that it met their needs.

TWI will be offering further Plant Inspection Levels 2 and 3 training in 2012 at Abington, UK and intends to run courses in South East Asia and the Middle East.
