Equipment, Facilities and Maintenance > Risk Based Inspection for the Oil & Gas Industry – In Compliance with API 581 & API RP 581. - Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Training Course

Risk Based Inspection (RBI) is a proven method used to optimise inspection activities based on risk analysis. RBI improves plant Integrity, reliability and safety while reducing unplanned outages and repair costs. Once the RBI program is operational, inspection learning is fed back to help lower the risk profile of the Asset. RBI is just one component of an overall integrated Asset Management Process. This course meets all requirements to comply with API 581 and API RP 581.

All participants will complete detailed pre-course questionnaires before the course, enabling trainers to tailor course content in order to meet specific delegate needs. Participant objectives are re-visited before, during and after the course, allowing us to focus on outcomes and address any participant concerns and specific issues during the program.

At the end of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate a holistic “Asset Management” program, and know where the RBI process fits in, and of course the benefits it will deliver
  • Carry out successful RBIs and introduce the RBI process in a sustainable manner into their company’s Asset Management Process
  • Understand the importance of Teams and have an appreciation of each other’s roles and responsibilities

RBI is primarily a team activity and as such benefits from a cross functional team participation. This course is aimed at Managers, Engineers, Inspectors Technicians and Operators at all levels who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of static equipment.

This course will help them to understand the risks on their unit, mitigate this risk and ensure resources are more effectively utilised, ensuring the integrity of plant and equipment and the safety of personal.

The design of this VILT course is such that all learning styles are catered for in a participative, friendly environment. Theory, techniques and principles are presented via video conference, video and practical case studies, then reinforced with individual and syndicate exercises. It is our goal to ensure the subject matter is relevant to all and delegates will be encouraged to share experiences and give their own personal insights into the subject matter. Questions and active participation is encouraged throughout particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss specific issues, and if possible, find appropriate solutions. Our goal is to maximise the benefit of this training for every delegate.
