A Mechanical Engineering graduate involved in industrial construction needs specialization before he gets assignment as QA/QC Engineer. The quality control of industrial construction is usually done in accordance with International Quality Standards such as ASME, API, AWS, ANSI, ASTM, BS etc. standards. The sectors of specialization courses are:
- Non Destructive Testing (NDT)
- Welding Inspection
- Coating Inspection
- Piping Inspection
- Tank Inspection
- Pressure Vessel Inspection
Usually American or British courses are recognized in these sectors which are expensive (Please refer to our brochure for recognized certifications). Hence we are giving basic classes for fresh engineers in above segments which will help fresh engineers in their carrier development.
Familiarization of Codes and Standards
A Codes and Standard can be defined as a set of technical definitions and guidelines that function as instructions for designers, manufacturers, operators, or users of equipment. Fabrications of tank, pressure vessel, heat exchanger, reactors, piping, pipeline etc. for industrial projects are done strictly in accordance with standards. Hence QA/QC engineers should be familiar with the relevant codes and standards. Accordingly we have defined this course which will be a great support to fresh engineers looking forward develop carrier as QA/QC Engineer or QA/QC Inspector.
Drawing is the universal language of engineers and QA/QC engineers working in the project should be capable to understand below listed drawings and have to work accordingly.
- P & ID
- Instrument Drawing
- Isometric Drawing
Usually drawings are done by the design engineers of the EPC companies and construction of the project are done as per the drawings.
Fundamentals of Quality Control
This course is designed in such a way that it will give a clear idea about Inspection and Test Plan (ITP) for the project. Moreover it will explain below duties and responsibilities of a Quality Control engineer.
- Pre-Inspection Meeting
- Inspection of Raw materials
- NDT / Destructive testing involved in raw material Inspection
- Material Certificate Control
- Review of Drawings
- Review of Procedures & Operator
- Qualification for Welding and NDT
- Fit up inspection of spools
- Monitoring of Welds
- Visual Inspection of finished welds
- Identification of spools
- Post Weld Heat Treatment
- Hardness Test
- Non Destructive Inspection of welds
- Surface Preparation and painting of spools
- Inspection at erection (Fit up, welding, PWHT, NDT etc.)
- Pressure Test
- Coating Inspection
- In-Service Inspection
Welding is the joining process used in the fabrication of steel components such as pipes, plates, structural, valves, tanks, pressure vessel etc. and there are various processes for welding. Hence QA/QC engineers associated with welding quality must have knowledge (ASME Sec IX) about relevant welding process. Accordingly this course will be highly supportive for candidates. Contents of the course are as follows.
- Welding Metallurgy
- Welding processes
- Welding Consumables (Electrodes, Shielding gas etc.)
- Type of Joints
- Welding positions
- Welding Procedure & Welder qualification ( PQR , WPS , WPQ)
- Welding Symbol
- Welding Defects (Causes & Remedies)
- Welding Documentation
Process piping interconnects various instruments in the projects and intended for the flow chemicals through it. Piping system uses different types of pipe fittings such as valves, tees, flanges, reducers, elbows, gaskets etc. in its fabrication. Hence engineers should be familiar with those fittings and its quality control.
- Introduction to Piping design
- (ASME B31.1/B31.3)
- Classification of straight pipes
- Classification of Pipe Fittings
- “O” Lets
- Pipe Supports
- Symbols used in drawing
- Interpretation of Pipe drawings
