This program is designed to train and evaluate a bolter’s ability to inspect, assemble, disassemble and tighten bolted joints in an effective and safe manner.
Through online courses and hands-on training, successful candidates will understand and demonstrate the principles and practices of safe bolted joint assembly as outlined in Appendix A of ASME PCC-1: Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly. Successful candidates will show their ability to apply these practices in the assembly of bolted joints safely and effectively.
The program consists of four online modules and a one-day hands-on training session. Candidates who successfully complete the online courses and pass the online final examination – as well as the hands-on instructor’s evaluation – will receive the ASME Certificate for the Qualified Bolting Specialist.*
