Certified Structural Integrity Management Professional (CSIMP)

Structural Integrity Management is one of the primary branches of engineering that ensures the dependability of a structure or structural component, thereby defining its primary function under normal conditions. Even if conditions exceed those specified in the original design, it must be guaranteed that a structure or structural component is safe.

The Structural Integrity Management System (SIMS) is an ongoing process designed to demonstrate the fitness-for-purpose of structures and offshore structures from installation to decommissioning. It is an embedded framework for planning, maintaining, and restoring platform inspections.

In accordance with ISO 19900, ISO 19902, ISO 19904, and API RP 2 SIM standards, AIBM’s Structural Integrity Management (SIM) training course identifies and lays out a thorough explanation of the fundamentals of Structural Integrity Management (SIM). Important roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders, as well as the significance of effective communication between them, will be emphasized in detail throughout the SIMS training course.

  • Recognize and articulate the significance and utility of the Structural Integrity Management System.
  • Apply and demonstrate the essential components of a successful SIM system.
  • Utilize ISO 19900, ISO 19902, ISO 2004, and API RP 2 SIM standards to precisely define SIMS.
  • Recognize the safety, environmental, and commercial risks associated with the operation of structures in order to implement effective techniques for risk reduction.
  • Maintain the integrity of structures throughout their entire life cycle.
  • Identify and implement the data, evaluation, strategy, and program phases of the SIMS process.
  • Identify and evaluate the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, as well as their mode of communication
  • Demonstrate a thorough comprehension of the SIMS’s scope, implementation, and outcome dependability.
