PV Elite 2015 Training
ECE is holding a 2 day PV Elite training class at our Houston Training Facility on Jones Road.
PV Elite 2015 Training: Houston, March 17-18, 2015
PV Elite Training covers fundamental guidelines for pressure vessel design. The course will be focused on Section VIII Division I, and will cover local wind and seismic codes; however other codes and standards will be referenced. Best practices for pressure vessel design are based on industry provided experience, which will allow attendees to ground engineering principles to real world applications. This course is not lecture based. Content is applied to each core aspect of PV Elite to facilitate hands on learning. Attendees will learn not only how to use PV Elite effectively but also learn how to become better engineers.
