Passing your ASME certification audit without any trouble! When you have applied to ASME for a Certificate, the Joint Review, Audit or Nuclear Survey will be deciding about whether or not you make it. As you do not want to fail we can show you how to survive. Feel safe and well prepared with our workshop.

This workshop will be the ultimate preparation for your Joint Review. Of course you must prepare your manual, construct your demonstration item, qualify procedures and personnel. In this workshop we will show you how to prepare efficiently in order to pass effectively. “Effectively” means to get the desired Certificate, “efficiently” means to invest adequate efforts, rather than too much.

Our instructor manages an entire team of specialists for all kinds of ASME certifications. Dr. Kölbl has been active as a consultant and supervisor in hundreds of ASME audits all over Europe and on the adjacent continents. He shares the tricks and tribal knowledge to make your audit run smoothly, to stay calm and professional and to be successful.

The seminar language is English.
