API 1169 Exam Preparation Course with PBOK’s Centre for Pipeline Knowledge

This training comprehensively prepares individuals for the American Petroleum Institute (API) 1169 certification exam by reviewing all information in the API Recommended Practice 1169 and API 1169 Body of Knowledge. The training features U.S.-specific study material including key highlights, recommended reading, terminology, scenario-based assessments, self-assessments, and practice questions organized by topic. The course concludes with a practice exam that has been developed to mimic the style and content of the API 1169 multiple choice exam. The practice exam can be repeated multiple times, as the question bank includes over 200 practice questions.

As an INGAA member company (PBOK Technical Training) we recognize the increased demand for API 1169 certified inspectors by operators. The CEPA and INGAA Foundations and their member companies have set out a goal of 100% compliance for inspectors with API 1169 by the end of 2018.
