Risk-Based Inspection

This API-Branded, Risk-Based Inspection training course gives attendees the basic understanding of RBI principles, recommendations, requirements, and the methodologies of API RP 580 and 581.

Upcoming Courses:

Risk-Based Inspection (API RP 580/581)

July 25 @ 9:00 am July 29 @ 1:00 pm EDT

This API-U approved Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) virtual training course provides attendees with a basic understanding of RBI principles and methodologies given in API RP 580 and 581. With a heavy emphasis on API RP 581 technology, students learn how to apply RBI technology to processing equipment by determining the probability of failure, the consequence of failure, and risk.  The culmination of the course occurs when attendees learn how to plan the equipment’s next inspection based on risk criteria. Additionally, the instructors facilitate discussions on developing an RBI program using industry best practices to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes when implementing and maintaining your RBI program. Typical risk reduction and the benefits of shifting from a time or conditioned-based inspection program to an RBI approach are also presented. Finally, the instructors present a detailed, comprehensive example problem to demonstrate the step-by-step risk calculations for a typical pressure vessel using the methodology of API RP 581.
