Our instructors are industry experts focused on excellence
Becht employs several hundred senior specialists, serving the process and energy industries. Many of Becht’s specialists are also experienced instructors, with countless years of experience in mentoring and teaching other professionals. Becht’s specialists teach a variety of technical courses around the world and are industry experts, who have spent their careers in pace setting owner-operator organizations. Arrangements can be made for any of the courses listed in the current training brochure to be taught at or near your site and most courses can be modified to custom suit your training needs. Becht Performance Group’s workshop and scenario-based exercises encourage trainees to synthesize new information and best practices into their daily tasks, bridging the gap between learning and practice. As compared with typical PowerPoint-focused lectures during which trainees are rarely engaged and frequently lose information before they even leave the classroom, this methodology has been proven to maximize retention and synthesis of information by incorporating multimodal learning techniques and engaging trainees. As German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus stated in “The Forgetting Curve”, if new information is not applied, 75% of the information will be forgotten within six days.
Our trainings ensure your team’s skills and knowledge stay sharp

“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.”

Becht’s team of NDT experts provides “hands-on” NDT training for the owner operators on or off site. Virtual training is also available as simple as a “Lunch and Learn“. The intent of this training is to inform the owner operator that hires inspection services what is “highly effective inspection”, NDT limitations, personnel qualifications and many additional instructions pertaining to purchasing the correct inspection. The training can include actual NDT techniques performed in the class room on real samples with all the explanation pertaining to what is a good inspection, what is bad inspection, how to enable repeat inspections with comparable results. Becht’s NDT training can be custom tailored to your order including duration, topic, degree of complexity and or by NDT techniques applicable to damage mechanisms.
