API 510-Authorized Pressure vessel inspector


API offers a 510 certification through their Individual Certification Program. The purpose of the certification is to identify individuals that possess broad knowledge in maintenance, inspection, repair, and alteration of pressure vessels. In order to receive the certification, applicants must pass a two part — one closed-book and one open-book — examination. The closed-book test requires candidates demonstrate an everyday working knowledge of API 510 and related documents. The open-book test requires candidates to show proficiency in more detailed issues where answers aren’t normally memorized but can be found in relevant documents.
