Certified Risk Based Inspection for Static Equipment and Pipes Professional (CRBISEPP)

RBI is a mechanism for risk-based prioritization and management of an inspection program’s activities. Typically, a small proportion of a plant’s equipment carries a disproportionate quantity of its risk. This inspection technique permits a change in inspection and maintenance resources to provide a higher level of service, allowing inspection and maintenance resources to be shifted to offer a productive degree of coverage on high-risk equipment while exerting the required effort on low-risk equipment.

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. This RBI training course will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the RBI system, which efficiently determines the optimal combination of equipment inspection methods, scopes, and frequencies in accordance with API 580/581 standards. This course ensures that the likelihood of failure and the consequences of failure are minimized in order to determine the safe operating apertures for specific process equipment, such as static equipment or piping.
