ASME Section IX - In Person Classroom



  • Describe the requirements for material joining procedure and performance qualifications, focusing primarily on welding qualifications
  • Explain the applicability of qualification rules for different welding processes
  • Discuss the documentation requirements for procedure and performance qualifications
  • Describe the requirements for supervision of qualification testing
  • Explain the certification and availability of qualification documents
  • Describe performance qualification continuity and requalification requirements
  • Discuss the use of Standard Welding Procedure Specifications (SWPSs)

Who the course is for

This course will be helpful for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of how to apply the rules for qualification of materials joining procedure and performance. It is especially helpful for those who are novice ASME Code users, but is beneficial for those with more extensive experience who would like are fresher to stay abreast of new developments over the years.

Course Contents

This course provides a high level over view of ASME Section IX, including its organization, responsibilities of various parties, and applicability to the various material joining processes. It is primarily focused upon the rules associated with welding processes, but some mention of brazing and plastic fusing is included. The material includes discussions on Part QG general requirements, the required contents and qualification of joining procedures, definitions of terms used in Section IX, an explanation of the essential, nonessential and supplementary essential variables, revisions to documents, limits of Section IX applicability, required testing for qualification, and use of the various tables in Section IX. A “How to” session on reviewing and writing a welding procedure is conducted to help participants understand how to apply the concepts that are addressed. Additionally, performance qualifications of individuals applying material joining processes are addressed, including responsibilities of various parties, performance variables, documentation requirements, required testing of qualification test specimens including mechanical and volumetric (UT or RT), acceptance criteria, performance qualification continuity, and requalification requirements. A “How To” session on completing performance qualification documents using the applicable performance variables and their limitations to establish personnel qualifications and their certification is included.
