SELF STUDY Course Description
This course is an ONLINE SELF STUDY examination preparation course that will assist those who are planning on writing the API 653 Above Ground Storage Tank Inspector Certification exam. 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 specific instructional lessons, API and ASME course work and training questions, and practice exams
Important Information Regarding Course Dates!
You will have 120 days of access from the time of your registration.
This course is designed to cover the information contained in the API Body of Knowledge. It is important to note that Kinetic Inspection & Testing has no prior knowledge of what questions will be on the examination. Therefore, it is our 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 detailed lessons and practice questions, with instructor support. 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 a way that is designed to assist each course participant and address each person’s unique skill set. Self-Study course participants will have access to the instructor by email or phone up to the day of their examination to ensure that they understand all the required information.
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 of three main portions:
Pre-course lessons that will help course participants understand the use of the materials, study tips, and what they can expect in the course materials.
Detailed lessons covering each of the documents included in the Effectivity Sheet. These lessons contain practice questions and solutions with references and step by step explanations.
Practice exams that will enable exam candidates to continue to use the skills they have learned up to the exam day.
This course is $799.00
Required Code Documents for the Course
All course participants are required to have copies of the API and ASME Code documents that are listed on the API 653 Effectivity Sheet.
