Certified API 510 Pressure Vessel inspectors must have a broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, repair, and alteration of pressure vessels. The API 510 examination is designed to determine if individuals have such knowledge.
This certiﬁcation program beneﬁts employers and the industry as a whole by helping to:
- Improve management control of process unit operation, repair, and maintenance of pressure vessels
- Reduce the potential for inspection delays
- Provide a continued high level of safety through the use of highly specialized and experienced inspectors
The aim of this comprehensive preparatory course is to provide the delegates with knowledge on how to easily PASS and obtain the API 510 authorized pressure vessel inspector certification as well as:
