ASME Course Update Schedule

November 28, 2018

We have been busy updating the ASME online library of courses. So far 72 training and knowledge tests have been updated, and we still have 226 to go. As the course updates continue, we do not want to bombard administrators with blog posts and emails every time we do maintenance, so we will instead provide where interested parties can monitor the ASME course maintenance schedule.

Please click HERE to view the status and schedule for ASME course updates.

Course maintenance will typically occur on evenings and weekends. If you cannot find a course in your course list, please refer to the online document for the course status.

For example, course maintenance will be performed on the following six courses on Sunday, December 2, 2018 beginning at 8 a.m. CST:

  • ASME-0051 e-TNG Installation of Exothermic Electrical Connections
  • ASME-0051 KNT Installation of Exothermic Electrical Connections
  • ASME-0211 e-TNG Measure and Characterize Mechanical Damage on Installed Pipe and Components
  • ASME-0211 KNT Measure and Characterize Mechanical Damage on Installed Pipe and Components
  • ASME-0871 e-TNG Installation of Steel Pipe in a Bore
  • ASME-0871 KNT Installation of Steel Pipe in a Bore

The online document will reflect these courses as being offline. Once course maintenance is complete, the updated courses will change in status.

As always, make sure users understand that courses should have a status of “Not Started” prior to launching. A KNT with a status of “Failed” or “In Progress” must be reset by the administrator.

Feel free to contact MEA Support with any questions or concerns.

Course Maintenance Now Complete

November 20, 2018

Course maintenance is now complete on the following courses:

  • ASME-0821 e-TNG Tubing and Fitting Installation – Instrument, Control and Sampling
  • ASME-0821 KNT Tubing and Fitting Installation – Instrument, Control and Sampling

Remember… After a course has undergone maintenance, it is important that users verify a status of “Not started” to ensure proper recording of a new score.

Course Maintenance Scheduled for November 20, 2018

November 20, 2018

The following courses are scheduled to undergo maintenance tonight (November 20) at 6:00 p.m. CST:

  • ASME-0821 e-TNG Tubing and Fitting Installation – Instrument, Control and Sampling
  • ASME-0821 KNT Tubing and Fitting Installation – Instrument, Control and Sampling

We expect maintenance to be completed by 10:00 p.m. CST. A blog post will go out when maintenance is complete.

Course Maintenance Now Complete

November 15, 2018

Course Maintenance is now complete on the following courses:

  • ASME-0131 e-TNG Insert and Remove Coupons/Probes for Internal Corrosion Monitoring
  • ASME-0131 KNT Insert and Remove Coupons/Probes for Internal Corrosion Monitoring
  • ASME-0261 e-TNG Inspection, Testing, Corrective and Preventive Maintenance – Tank Gauges for Leak Detection
  • ASME-0261 KNT Inspection, Testing, Corrective and Preventive Maintenance – Tank Gauges for Leak Detection

As previously communicated, these courses are using the refreshed MEA brand and new user interface.

In addition, the updated courses will also have the new knowledge test functionality. Course users will only be allowed to open a KNT course once. If a course session is ended for any reason prior to receiving a passed or failed score, the status will change to “In Progress” and the EnergyU Administrator will be required to reset the course. Users will not be able to launch an “In Progress” knowledge test until the course is reset.

Functionality of the training (TNG) courses will remain the same — users will be allowed multiple sessions to complete, and users will be able to review learning content of completed courses.

If a course session is ended for any reason prior to receiving a passed or failed score, the status will change to “In Progress” and the EnergyU Administrator will be required to reset the course. A trend toward tighter regulations and a desire to have more oversight of online knowledge tests has prompted this recommendation by the MEA Technical Training Committee.
