Course Overview:

This 4 days classroom-based course is suitable for QA/QC inspectors, engineers, managers, and supervisors who are already employed or acquainted with thermal insulation, or protective coating/painting, or inspection and quality control. The course will provide a deep understanding of inspection and quality control requirements of the various types and forms of thermal insulation materials and systems used to reduce the rate of heat transfer from piping, flanges, valves, tanks, exchangers, vessels, subsea equipment and the like. The course syllabus also covers the acoustic insulation that is used to prevent noise pollution and is used to insulate pumps compressors and the like.

Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is one of the major and a trillion-dollar problem for the oil and gas processing industry, this problem can only be avoided or reduced when an educated and well-trained workforce is involved in Insulation system designing, installation, inspection and quality control, and maintenance activity.

IOGS/CII Level 2 certified insulation inspectors would aid in reducing the CUI possibilities, improving project performance, and guarantee ITP and specification goals are sustained through the proper installation of an insulation system at a facility.

Is this ideal for me?

IOGS/CII Level 2 course is suitable for QA/QC Inspectors, Engineers, Supervisors, Managers, Operators (engaged in plant operation), Insulation Contractor Workforce and so forth.
