Certified Pressure Safety Valve Integrity Training (CPSVIP)

A safety valve is a valve that serves as a failsafe route. During the Industrial Revolution, steam furnaces were the first to incorporate safety valves. In the absence of cautious operation, early boilers were prone to explosion. For PSV, spring-loaded and pilot-operated pressure safety valves will be utilized. Pilot-operated relief valves are a subset of pressure relief valves. When the pressure or temperature exceeds predetermined limits, a pressure relief valve (PRV) will autonomously release a substance from a boiler, pressure vessel, or any other system. A rupture disk is a subpar, non-leaking option for one-time emergency use.

AIBM has a “learn to ace” philosophy; our team consists of professional and expert educators who ensure that your abilities and skills are enhanced by effectively acquiring course-specific knowledge. PSVs and Safety Relief Valves are referred to differently and interchangeably in the technical industry. This course aims to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of PSV’s technical methodologies without compromising safety standards, thereby enabling your business to grow proficiently.

Certification Program Objectives: 

  • Identify and classify the various varieties of PSVs, including conventional, bellows, and pilot-operated.
  • Evaluate and describe productive function and operation procedures.
  • Describe prevalent inadequacies.
  • Identify and assess PSVs that are conventional, bellows, or pilot-operated, testing, and certified for productive operations.
  • Recognize essential elements in strip and refurbishment.
  • Summarize efficiently the reference data and technical recommendations for selecting safety valves for various applications.
  • Cover terminology, standards, codes, fundamental design, troubleshooting, and installation should be thoroughly understood.

Certifying Examination:

  • To be certified as CPSVIP, student should take up a 1.5 hours exam at the designated examination centers.
  • The qualifying exam would consist of 50 multiple choice questions, testing core certification modules.
  • Professionals with relevant experience and other qualifying criteria may be exempted from the examination.

Materials Provided:

  • Presentation slides
  • Study references


Upon successful completion of the CPSVIP training, participants will receive a “Certified Pressure Safety Valve Integrity Training ” certificate.
