Magnetic Particle Inspection (Level I and II) (3 days each)
Liquid penetrant inspection level I/ii (visible dye) (1 day)
magnetic flux leakage inspection (Level I/II) (4 days)
1. Transverse inspection assembly2. Longitudinal inspection assembly3. Gamma wall thickness assembly (is it is being used by member so the class)4. Magnetic wall monitoring5. Grade comparator6. Requirements of API Spec 5CT and RP 5A5
Ultrasonic Inspection (Level I and Level II) (5 days Each)
These courses were developed to meet the guidelines of SNT-TC-1A. The Level I course provides a basic knowledge of Ultrasonic inspection. The course covers both compression and shear wave inspection. The student is provided with sufficient knowledge to standardize and use flaw detector ultrasonic equipment under the supervision of the Level II. The student is introduced to curved surfaces early in the course.
After a review of the Level I material, the Level II course work goes to work on flaw detection and sizing. The material is directed to being able to work with curved surfaces. The IPIA courses are the only ones we know of that are focused on curved surfaces. ASTM and API requirements are the basis of inspection requirements.
visual thread inspection (1 Day)
Thread gauging (5 days)
The students are required to obtain all the inspection data required for API Std 5B. They are also required to gauge selected connections. This requires them to extract or calculate dimensions and tolerances from API STD 5B prior to the actual inspection. In addition to the standard API requirements, functional diameter gauging is also taught in this course. The course is designed for those who gauge threads but is also popular with oil company personnel and third party monitors.
