The ASME B31.3 course was enlightening and extremely well-organized. Your thorough knowledge of the subject matter was evident from the depth of your explanations and the clarity with which you presented complex concepts. Your ability to break down intricate topics into digestible segments made it easy for all participants to follow along and understand.

Very useful and great course.
I wanted to thank Malyomar for the ASME B31.3-Process Piping training . It has had a great impact on my work thanks to the knowledge I acquired during the training.
My deepest gratitude goes out to Mahmoud Abdallah, my instructor, for sharing so much of his wisdom and priceless experience in an incredibly transparent and illuminating way.
Dynamic and mastery of the subject by the teacher.
Concrete examples, materials for thought, exercises with correction, advice, everything that allows a better understanding of the field of process piping with an ever present assistance from the instructor.
I highly recommend taking this course if anyone wants to improve himself in the oil and gas field and earn a lot of knowledge.
It worth the price.

Very instructive course useful to all people in the piping field, I highly recommend it.
the quality of teaching of the instructor is excellent.

Very useful training , great instructor who can deliver information easily

Thanks so much for your very valuable training. I really enjoyed it, and appreciated that you made it a fun and very useful course Thank you for your experience and personable presentation
