*5. ASME Hardcopy Certificate 1: Qualified Bolting Specialist from ASME NYC HQ with the Gold Seal.

This is what ASME has to say:
ASME has launched a new training program, the ASME Bolting Specialist Qualification Program, which is specifically developed to enhance a bolter’s ability to safely and effectively assemble and disassemble pressurized joints.
Preventing gasket leaks in these types of joints is one of the single most effective ways to improve safety, reduce fugitive emissions, lower maintenance costs and shorten turnaround times during shutdowns. The key to achieving these improvements is enhancing the bolter’s understanding of both the functions and limits of bolts, gaskets and flanges -- and especially the importance of following formal tightening procedures.
“While welders have long had the training they need to prevent leaks, bolters now have the formal training they need,” said Michael Ireland, associate executive director, Engineering. “ASME’s new qualification program was developed by a group of bolting industry experts — with over 193 collective years’ of bolting experience — whose prime motivation is preventing bolted flange connection gasket leaks and who recognize the need for this training program.”
The new program, which incorporates online courses and hands-on training, will help participants understand and demonstrate the principles and practices of safe bolted joint assembly as outlined in Appendix A of ASME PCC-1: Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly. They will also learn to apply these practices in the safe and effective assembly of bolted joints.
The ASME Bolting Specialist Qualification Program consists of four online modules and a one-day hands-on training session. The online training portion of the program is designed to improve bolters’ knowledge of the principles and procedures of safe and effective bolting, as assessed by an online test following each module.
The hands-on tool demonstration and testing portion of the program allows candidates to review, observe and demonstrate actual tool handling coupled with the practical application of the principles and practices to show their ability to safely and effectively operate bolting tools and assemble functioning joints.
Candidates will receive the ASME Certificate for the Qualified Bolting Specialist upon the successful completion of the online courses, the online final examination, and the hands-on training. While the program is intended to enhance participants’ familiarization with the general principles and best practices of bolted joint assembly, it is not a certification program. The determination of an individual’s competency for assigned tasks and work remains the responsibility of his or her employer.
