Liquefied Gas Carrier National Center of Expertise (LGC NCOE) - Carrier Surveyor Training

Liquefied Gas Carrier - Class Society Surveyor Training

DATES: Dates for upcoming Annual Class Society Surveyor Training can be found at the EVENTS link.

Seats available: 20


1) Be a liquefied gas surveyor or liquefied gas SME of a Class Society

The LGC NCOE conducted our first Surveyor Training/Information Exchange in 2017. The purpose of hosting the Class Society Surveyor Training is to conduct a professional exchange of information with our industry partners. We will share how the LGC NCOE interprets applicable Liquefied Gas Carrier regulations and how we apply them when conducting foreign gas carrier exams.

Bring the following three items with you:

1) Bring your electronic or printed copy of the USCG FGCE TTP found HERE (228 pages)
2) Bring your electronic or printed copy of the IGC Code (1993 Edition)
3) Bring your copy of the USCG Gas Carrier Inspector Student Guide found HERE (112 pages)
*** Item 3 has written exercise, you may find it more convenient to print, but it is not required. You would then need a notebook to make note of your responses. Take a quick look at it and decide.
Note: You can three hole punch the TTP, or some have found it nice to take the TTP to a document printing franchise where they can spiral bind books for a small fee ($10).

To get the most of out the training, attendees should bring a copy of the three items above.
