Zoom – Tubing and Casing Thread Inspection Course

COURSE SCHEDULE & CONTENT

The Tubing & Casing course is based on API 5CT & RP 5B-1: Threading and Gauging of casing ,tubing and line pipe threads. This course is intended for both new and experienced thread inspectors.

The Basic Gauge Measurement Instruction course for Tubing and Casing is designed to
introduce, familiarize and teach correct gauging techniques for the proper measurement of
tubing and casing threads utilizing equipment commonly found in the industry. The course is a
full day, eight hour course comprising four sections with a break for lunch.

The student is given a brief history of gauge use, a description of how the connections are used, definition and importance of each individual thread element, proper setting and measurement techniques on a variety of gauges across multiple manufacturers and the importance of proper gauging techniques followed by Instructor lead gauging of various threads in both passing and failing conditions.

We encourage end user companies to provide gauges and test pieces for their class participants to practice with during the course. Instructor will observe students as they adjust, zero and measure with the different thread element gauges. The GT instructor will advise class participants on proper gauge handling and measurement techniques to ensure the gauges are used to their full capability. For the final hands-on measurement examination, Gauge Training will send GT test pieces to the customer’s location to be used with their company gauges. The instructor will coordinate with the end user to set up a zoom call for the final hands-on examination. Each class will have two hours to complete the final hands-on examination via zoom. Upon completion, all final tests will be scanned and email to Gauge Training for grading. All class participants who participate in the zoom class will receive a “Certificate of Attendance” for making it through the entire presentation. All class participants who pass the final hands-on examination, with an 80% or higher, will receive a “Certificate of Completion” and a personalized API-U approved thread inspector ID card.

Testing is done on sample pieces supplied by Gauge Training Inc. Please contact us at Sales@gaugetraining.com to organize the delivery of sample parts. (Additional charges may apply)

Students are tested for understanding and implementation of lessons and then
graded to achieve passing completion of the course. Students are supplied with a Certificate of
Completion, an official API-U approved thread inspector identification card.

Calibration Theory

Gauge training is proud to offer our new Calibration theory course. This course is a primer course to calibration designed for the average calibration technician to get a better understanding of the industry and their responsibility in it. We will cover a great deal of information including traceability, repeatability, and accuracy. We also cover basic calibration procedures and why each step of the process is so important. This course is perfect for anyone who is interested in taking the next step in their quality career and would like to understand the whys behind many of the policies and procedures put in place by governing bodies and company policy.

In this course we do not show you how to calibrate any single type of gauge, instead we focus on the over arching principles of calibration.

St. Patricks Day

Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (IrishLá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland),[4] the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,[3] and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.[5] Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilís, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.[6] Christians who belong to liturgical denominations also attend church services[5][7] and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.[5][6][8][9]

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[10] Northern Ireland,[11] the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador (for provincial government employees), and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated in the United Kingdom,[12] CanadaUnited StatesBrazilArgentinaAustralia and New Zealand, especially amongst Irish diaspora. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival.[13] Modern celebrations have been greatly influenced by those of the Irish diaspora, particularly those that developed in North America. However, there has been criticism of Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations for having become too commercialised and for fostering negative stereotypes of the Irish people.

Easter

Easter,[nb 1] also called Pascha (GreekLatin)[nb 2] or Resurrection Sunday,[5][6] is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.[7][8] It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a 40-day period of fastingprayer, and penance.

Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as “Holy Week“, which contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper,[9][10] as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus.[11] In Western ChristianityEastertide, or the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the 50th day, Pentecost Sunday. In Eastern Christianity, the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the 40th day, the Feast of the Ascension.

Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the Sun; rather, its date is offset from the date of Passover and is therefore calculated based on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries and generated a number of controversies. It has come to be the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March.[12] Even if calculated on the basis of the more accurate Gregorian calendar, the date of that full moon sometimes differs from that of the astronomical first full moon after the March equinox.[13]

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In most European languages the feast is called by the words for passover in those languages; and in the older English versions of the Bible the term Easter was the term used to translate passover.[14] Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greetingclipping the church,[15] and decorating Easter eggs (symbols of the empty tomb).[16][17][18] The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection,[19][20] traditionally decorates the chancel area of churches on this day and for the rest of Eastertide.[21] Additional customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades.[22][23][24] There are also various traditional Easter foods that vary regionally.
