The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Repair Seminar  focuses on organizations preparing to perform repairs and/or alterations in accordance with Part 3 of the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC), and now includes extended sessions on ASME Code calculations and alteration plans.

Students begin with a review of the National Board accreditation process in its entirety, including an overview of the NBIC. A follow-up workshop provides detailed information on the application process, completion of Qualification Review Reports (QRRs), Quality Control programs, and QC manuals.

Next, is a step-by-step through the repair process. Instructors guide students through a repair and alteration beginning with determining the scope of the repair/alteration and closing with the final stamping and proper documentation needed.

This training has been redesigned to be conducted by instructors in a remote classroom setting. Class is held Monday - Friday between 12:30 - 4:30 pm Eastern each day. This new format allows students to split their time between work and class each day.
