It was a good informative course overall but not enough info on how to efficiently navigate the code.

I found the over all coarse very in formative and having the coarse and piping code to fall back onto as needed. Also instructor gave us his contact info if any questions or needing assistance to clarify code requiremts.

I personally found this course to be of great value. After attempting to apply the code for about 1 year from my own interpretations, it was very beneficial to have an expert clarify parts of it as well as expose me to sections I did not previously know. The first 2 days were the introductory course and covered more basic topics such as code definitions and general statements of requirements relating to pipe/fitting selection, materials, pressure design, valve selection, intro to flexibility, fab and install, inspection/examination/testing, and other systems (instruments, pressure relieving, etc.). The second 2 days covered the more advanced topics of the code, mainly covering calculations of the various type of loads to consider (pressure, sustained, and displacement), types of supports and where to locate them, various flexibility considerations, reaction forces exerted on equipment, supports, and flanges from adjacent piping, performing flexibility analysis by hand and using Caesar, and designing with expansion joints. Other topics such as non-metallic piping systems, cat M fluid service, high pressure piping, API 570 requirements, B31.1 requirements, and underground piping were touched on in lesser detail (no calculation examples on these topics).
