“The course was a great overview of API 579 / ASME FFS-1 and FFS-2. George talked through the level 1 and 2 assessment and examples for each Part (1 through 14) of API 579, and include additional FFS assessments for “Waterhammer” and “Flow-Induced Vibrations” (in draft to be Part 16). George is a wealth of knowledge. Because of his involvement with piping code updates and reviews, he was able to give us insight into the creation of these codes and upcoming additions.”

“The quality of the course surpassed my expectations in every way. The trainer’s experience and teaching method really helped to understand better the different complex notions covered by the ASME Section VIII Division 2 Part 5 code is a much better and more effective manner rather than simply learning it on my own. The course also raised several very good points regarding the general practice of FEA that I will apply to my practice outside the scope of the pressure vessels.”
