This would include an API issued letter, certificate, and a wallet card. This certificate adds significant value to one’s professional credentials. It shows employers and clients a high level of proficiency and understanding in the field. The supplemental inspection certification program is open to anyone who is currently certified to API 510, 570 or 653. Included with the course is a pre-study guide and student classroom workbook. The student receives instruction on how to take the test and gains insight into the applications of RBI in “real world” situations. Daily tests are designed to gauge students’ proficiency and understanding of the material.
