a) Course Memo
Quality like safety should be treated as a collective responsibility across any organization. Therefore, individuals working for energy industry specially those dealing with the design, fabrication, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and turnaround in oil and gas terminals, refineries, petrochemical plants and the like should know about the importance of compliance with codes, standards and recommended practices.
API codes, standards and recommended practices are not written with the intention of training individuals on general understanding, design skills, application, etc. nor API would respond to such queries.
