SSPC Pipeline InspectorSSPC Boru Hatları Kaplamaları Enspektör Kursu

Pipelines are our energy lifeline, making almost every daily activity possible. Pipelines play a huge role in everyday lives and are essential to the worlds industries.

There are around 40,000 kilometres of pipeline in the UK and over
2 million kilometres of pipeline in the USA. Pipelines cover all parts of the globe carrying everything from oil and gas to fresh water, diesel and petrol to jet fuel.

Pipelines are essential in transporting water around the globe as well
as removing sewage away from homes. Steel pipelines are used to transport oil and gas which has been collected from its natural residence to the refineries and further to suppliers and distributors.

Often the contents of these pipes can be hazardous and corrosive and corrosion prevention methods are required to ensure the pipeline stays in a safe condition with little risk to people and environment. This training course looks at the corrosion protection of steel pipelines with the
use of protective coatings and cathodic protection and the duties and responsibilities of the pipeline coatings inspector.

The course also includes an introduction to wet thermal insulation used on subsea pipelines and associated fittings. Case studies for field joint wet thermal insulation are also included. The online course has ongoing assessments and a final examination for certification which can be undertaken at any one of our approved assessment centres.
