API 510 Online Self-Study Exam Preparation
This course is an online self study exam preparation course specifically designed to assist those who are planning on writing the API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector examination. While this is a self study program, course participants are fully supported by the instructor and will be assisted with any questions they may have as they work through the course material.
This course will teach the following:
Navigation within the required Code documents (an essential skill for answering questions accurately and in a timely fashion)
The required knowledge to pass the examination as listed in the API Body of Knowledge
Methods and skills required to perform Code calculations during the examination
This course contains explanatory lessons, training questions, example questions and samples, and 3 practice exams and videos to assist with the contents and use of the various codes and recommended practices.
- Course participants will receive a certificate with up to 80 hours of training time (dependant on the actual timed hours spent in the course material) that can be used towards other training requirements for organizations such as CWB, AWS, etc.
This course will cover the information and topics contained in the Body of Knowledge published by API. It is important to note that Kinetic Inspection & Testing has no prior knowledge of what questions will be on the examination. Therefore, it is the intent to train exam candidates sufficiently to answer anything that API could ask from the topics listed in the Body of Knowledge.
During the course participants will have the opportunity to be guided through the Codes by sets of training questions, practice exams and written instruction. Course registrants also can communicate and be supported by an experienced instructor. They will have the chance to answer questions that are similar to the ones that will be asked on the exam, and have concepts and calculation steps demonstrated in the written material in a way that is designed to assist each course participant and address each person’s unique skill set.
The instructor will be available for one-on-one assistance and discussion by email or if necessary by phone.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration in this course does not register an individual for the actual API ICP examination. This must be done through API at www.api.org. API expects all examination candidates to have relatively broad experience and knowledge prior to attempting this examination. If you have any questions regarding your suitability and chances of success in writing this challenging examination, please contact Kinetic Inspection & Testing and we will discuss your specific situation and give you recommendations on courses and training that will suit your specific goals and circumstances.
This course consists the following:
- Introductory and explanatory videos
