PSV Inspection & Verification

Course Details

This two day course focuses on PSV test types and the interpretation of valve data, test specifications and acceptance criteria. Following training, attendees will understand whether a test is accepted or failed, recognise if a test has been sabotaged and will appreciate the consequences of incorrect inspection techniques.

The course is 50% workshop-based and practical training is delivered in our custom-built training workshop, resourced with a full range of specialist equipment including a PSV test cell. An extensive range of training valves in a variety of conditions is used during workshop sessions to provide training delegates with experience in realistic working scenarios.
