Training - API-510 Preparatory Course

The industry of inspection has changed in the last ten years and the new buzzword seems to be certification. Old time, seasoned inspectors are finding that almost every new job is asking for a certified API-510 inspector to perform external or internal pressure vessel inspections. Even though one might have the experience, certification is now required.

The Base Line Data, Inc. API-510 Preparatory Course is designed to prepare inspectors for this rigorous exam. It covers in depth the Body of Knowledge one must be familiar with to pass this examination. The nighttime courses are tailored for the working man or woman who just can't miss a paycheck to go out of town to take a week long crash course. The daytime courses are for those people who are already familiar with the material, but need some reinforcement.

The nighttime course consists of two three-hour nights a week for a total of eight (8) weeks. This course will allow plenty of time for reading and exercises for preparation. The daytime course will consist of eight (8) hours a day for six (6) days. Both courses will assist in being prepared for the examination. Both day and night class alternatives are available. A minimum of at least fifteen (15) students is necessary for the class to form. The cost of the course will cover the training and classroom workbooks. All code material and API exam fees are the responsibility of the student. These courses are offered at least four times a year and the dates, pricing and sign-up can be accessed through the posted schedule.
