ASME to Offer MasterClasses for the First Time in Milan

Mar 12, 2015

ASME Training & Development is collaborating with two Italian professional societies to offer five ASME MasterClasses on Pressure Technology and Standards for the first time in Milan, Italy. The Society is working with the Federation of the Italian Associations of Mechanical and Engineering Industries (ANIMA) and the Milan-based Association of Pressure Equipment Manufacturers (UCC) to present the MasterClasses, which will take place from June 22 to 26 at the Crowne Plaza Milan-Linate.

Led by recognized experts who are also ASME code leaders, ASME MasterClass Series courses are practical, case study-driven training sessions for experienced professionals that emphasize learning through discussion of real world case studies and practical applications. The MasterClasses stress interactive collaboration and knowledge-sharing, where participants may actively contribute to the discussion and have an opportunity to share real-life experiences with other members of the class.

The five MasterClasses on Pressure Technology and Standards, which will be taught in English, will focus around critical design rules and ASME code applications that address current industry issues. The following MasterClasses have been scheduled in Milan: “Design by Analysis Requirements in ASME Section VIII, Division 2 – Alternative Rules” on June 22 and 23; “Techniques and Methods Used in API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 for Advanced Fitness-For-Service (FFS) Assessments” on June 24; “Bases and Application of Heat Exchanger Mechanical Design Rules in ASME Section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code” on June 25 and 26; “Structural Materials and Design for Elevated to High Temperatures” on June 25 and 26; “Structural Materials and Design for Elevated to High Temperatures on June 25 and 26; and “Inspection Planning Using Risk-Based Methods” on June 25 and 26.

ASME Training & Development will also offer more than a dozen traditional public training courses in Milan between June 22 and 26, in conjunction with the MasterClass Training Event. The courses will range from fundamental to intermediate level courses, with topics covering boilers and pressure vessels, bolting, fluids and heat transfer and nuclear components, to piping and pipelines, and welding.
