API 936 Refractory Inspection Code
July 22 - July 24
This API Certification Program is designed to train individuals on Refractory installation, inspection, testing and repair in accordance with API 936 Standard. API 936 provides guidelines for the installation quality control of monolithic refractory linings which is used to supplement owner specifications. The course also covers the material, equipment and personnel qualification requirements along with procedures and responsibilities for quality control inspection personnel.
API Refractory Certification Program provides the industry with a means for central, independent, unbiased and defensible certification and ensures that refractory personnel demonstrate competence in content areas that are relevant to their practices. The program raises the bar of competence for qualified personnel and provides a peace of-mind to the industry that the certified individual has demonstrated knowledge of the relevant content of refractory installation and inspection.
For the refractory personnel, this certification provides a method to demonstrate knowledge and experience with refractories and refractory inspection to employers and clients. By participating in API’s 936 Certification Program, inspectors and other professionals serving the petroleum, petrochemical, and chemical industries are readily able to provide evidence of proper qualification. Certification provides personnel with industry-directed and industry accepted professional credentials.
