Career Possibilities

It is estimated that approximately 20 million tons of industrial paint is produced annually world-wide. Such large amount of paint requires a proportionately large number of personnel for its application, supervision and quality control.

QA/QC



Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance focuses on preventing defect. Quality Assurance ensures that the approaches, techniques, methods, specifications and processes are designed for the safe and successful completion of a project and all standard parameters are met so that the entire project can be implemented to the client’s satisfaction.

Quality assurance activities monitor and verify that the processes used to manage and create the deliverables have been followed and are in operation. It is a proactive process and is preventive in nature. Quality Assurance has to complete before Quality Control.

Quality Control

Quality Control is to test or verify actual results by comparing it with the defined standards and it mainly focuses on identifying a defects. QC ensures that the approaches, techniques, methods and processes designed for the project are followed correctly. QC activities monitor and verify that the project deliverables meet the defined quality standards.

Quality Control is a reactive process and is detective in nature. Quality Control has to begin after Quality Assurance.

What is the difference between QA and QC?

Many people think QA and QC are the same and interchangeable but this is not true. Both are tightly linked and sometimes it is very difficult to identify the differences. Fact is both are related to each other but they are different in origins. QA and QC both are part of Quality Management. However QA is focusing on preventing defect while QC is focusing on identifying the defect.

Oil and Gas QA/QC Training programs

Maintaining consistent quality in any product helps to attain customer satisfaction and to reduce the risk of replacement due to improper functioning. Quality can be achieved by following proper Standards, Specifications and Procedures.

These courses generally refers to Piping Engineering, Design analysis, Fabrication and inspection of piping systems and provides a thorough understanding of QA/QC Documentation process to fresh graduates as well as experienced QC personnel who wish to orient their careers towards QA/QC Engineer in Oil and gas / Petrochemicals / Refineries / Energy and power sectors.

This line of studies consists of five basic parts and these can be completed in a single package or as separate modules as per student objectives as follows:

  • To evaluate Radiographic sensitivity
  • Interpretation of Radiographs
  • Specifications
WPS – PQR Preparation

Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is a written document that provides direction to the welder or welding operator for making production welds in accordance with certain code requirements. The purpose of qualification of a WPS is to determine that the weldments proposed for a given construction project is capable of providing the required properties for its intended application. Welding procedure qualification establishes the properties of the weldments, not the skill of the welder or welding operator. Welding Procedure Qualification Record (WPQR) documents what occurred during welding the test sample and test results of the same which was made as per WPS explained above. In performance qualification, the basic criterion established for welder qualification is to determine the welder’s ability to deposit sound weld. The purpose of the performance qualification test for the welding operator is to determine the welding operator’s mechanical ability to operate the welding equipment. This course trains a student how to draw-up a WPS document for a given project and methods of evaluation and documentation (WPQR) for approval of a weld sample (coupon) created based on the given WPS. (Reference – ASME section IX, ASME B 31.3, ASME section – II part C)
