About our CEU and Certificate of Completion program:
1) A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) equals ten (10) contact hours of student and instructor interaction. We do not offer self-paced petroleum industry related training.
2) We only provide full "contact hours" of training which in turn must then be divided by ten (10) to obtain the number of CEU hours being awarded, and they are always expressed in 1/10th of a CEU; that is; twelve (12) contact hours equate to 1.2 CEUs.
Again, the accumulation of twelve (12) contact hours would result in 1.2 CEUs being awarded. Most of the courses we offer are one (1) contact hour in length, which will typically require unawarded time to be spent before and after the “training is in progress” time period
3) Contact hours do not include:
a) Login time or arrival times either for online or in-person training courses.
b) Group introductory times, break sessions or time spent loitering before or after training is in progress.
c) Time spent registering, paying for, or other such allotments of time which are deemed outside of the "training is in progress time".
4) Acceptance of our CEUs, as with most of those provided elsewhere, is entirely out of our control and left up to the party of which their acceptance is being requested.
5) Any publications, recommended practices, standards, and etc. that might be related to this training program are not included in the fee listed for subject matter courses.
6) No CEUs will be finalized and awarded until a final quiz is completed by the participant and a passing grade / score of at least 80% has been achieved. If the 80% grade / score is not achieved, the participant, if they would want to retake the training session at a later time, would be required to re-register and re-pay the required registration fee.
7) No refunds will be provided for cancelations that are initiated by the participant or others outside of our organization, including government lockdowns and etc.
8) No entrance into the training session will be granted for anyone logging in or arriving late, regardless of the reason, unless the fault is our own.
*Training is in progress time. This is to be understood to be the actual time in which the participant is to be recieving training and instruction regarding the actual subject matter.
A partial list of training classes that we are awarding CEUs for are listed below.
For one (1) contact hours.
1) Introduction to the inspection of bolted tanks.
a) Course 1, identified as HIRTS101010. This course identifies the past uses of bolted tanks in the petroleum industry and highlights the reasons for the devlopemnt of the early "Chime" bolted tanks.
b) Course 2, identified as HIRTS101020. This course helps the particiapnt to understand the design concepts and main differances of the more traditional Chime tanks as compared to the modern RTP or the more simplier "flat panel" designs as provided by several manufactures.
c) Course 3, identified as HIRTS101020. This course discusses the actual inspection of Chime bolted tanks and provides insights into some of the differance with the inspection of these tanks versus welded tank inspections. It is recommended that the attendee purchase Publication 2018 from Techstreet by following this link. This link may used to learn more about the Publication and will not require a purchase to be made.
2) Introduction to the proper installation of urethane wiper seals for internal floating roof systems.
a) Course 1, identified as HIRTS107101. This course shows how shorter sections of typical urethane wiper seal materials can be jointed together in the field, or in the shop, to produce a long, continiuse wiper seal system tha can be used to susussefully close-off the annular space existing between the ourter edge of the IFR and the inner face of the tank shell.
b) Course 2, identified as HIRTS107201. This course is designed around the understanding of early delvopment of mechanical shoe seals used in large aboveground steel weled or rivet tanks.
b) Course 3, identified as HIRTS107300. This series is being specifically tailored to provide training on seal and floating roof issues such as new releases, product details and of course product failures.
3) Introduction to the inspection of fiberglass tanks as per FTV RP 2007.
a) Course 1 of 4.
This course expains only the concepts of FRP tank inspection and is not concidered to be part of the training course that is required to be completed in order to become a Training and qualified FTV RP 2007 Tank Inspector.
b) Course 2 of 4.
This course focuses in on the use of Borcol hardness testing procedures and the reasons that this type of NDE must be included in the inspection of FRV abovegoround storage tanks and is not concidered to be part of the training course that is required to be completed in order to become a Training and qualified FTV RP 2007 Tank Inspector.
c) Course 3 of 4.
This course strutue and content are currently be developed.
