Since 1986, the SAIW has held a two week course on the ASME Codes of
Construction including the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel
Inspection Code. This course now covers: National Board Inspection Code;
ASME Section I; ASME Section VIII Division I; ASME Section IX.

It has been agreed, in conjunction with the relevant committees,
that this course will be included in the modules required for
registration as a: SAQCC (IPE) Inspector of Pressurised
Equipment. The course is specifically designed to introduce
students on how to use the relevant code sections
logically and methodically. This course is aligned with
the NBIC for personnel aiming to qualify in the
categories mentioned above.

This ASME Code of Construction is ideal for welding inspectors
involved in boiler and/or pressure vessel fabrication, repair
or modification according to the ASME codes. This course is
mandatory for inspectors aiming for Inspector of Pressurised
Equipment (IPE) certification with the intention of working for an
Approved Inspection Authority.
