“The IPEIA codes course (now known as “Student Pressure Equipment Fundamentals Seminar”) was an amazing opportunity for both a crash course and a summary for the codes that I briefly learned about in school. Having the information provided in the weekend course format and instructors who were willing to answer any question– Tina Chen, NAIT Graduate (Materials Engineering Technology)
“I attended both the IPEIA codes courses, Beginner and Advanced, in 2022 (now known as “Student Pressure Equipment Fundamentals Seminar”) . This course covers a lot of content in the allotted time and has helped me make the transition from new student grad, to working in a live facility. I still find myself recalling things I learned in the course that I can apply to the job, Definitions, construction codes, CRN numbers, over pressure protection, and more. The codes course is a great addition to technical knowledge for anyone looking to get into, or are new to, the industry.”– Cheyenne Starblanket, QC Level 1, NAIT Graduate (Materials Engineering Technology)
