  • 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

Important Information Regarding Course Dates!

You will have 120 days of access from the time of your registration. If you need more than that, or your schedule changes, please call Todd at 780-213-0292 and we will do everything we can to accommodate your specific schedule!

Topics Covered

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.
