Announcing Inspectioneering and API’s Mechanical Integrity Professional Initiative

January 6, 2020

Inspectioneering and the American Petroleum Institute have partnered to create the Mechanical Integrity Professional Initiative, an online educational experience focused on raising the industry’s benchmark on technical knowledge and developing the next generation of experienced personnel. The initiative is built on the shared belief that, by equipping mechanical integrity professionals with greater knowledge, education and proficiency, the industry will be safer and more reliable.

Visitors on can now access tools and resources that are designed to guide them down the path toward subject matter expertise. Starting at the initiative hub, visitors can choose from various subject areas to learn more about mechanical integrity-related subjects in an interactive and engaging manner. The first iteration includes modules on Risk-Based Inspection, Damage Mechanisms, and Source Inspection. In the coming months, additional modules covering Welding Inspection, Ultrasonic Testing, and Refractory will also be available.

The resources provided through the Mechanical Integrity Professional Initiative are intended for anyone with a desire to obtain technical proficiency in the identified subject areas. We hope that entry-level and advanced inspectors alike will take away insights from this project.
