The Mechanical Integrity Professional Initiative

A joint project by Inspectioneering and
The American Petroleum Institute

Welcome to 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.

This initiative provides education on a number of topics that are important in becoming proficient in mechanical integrity. We’ve started by creating units for Risk-Based Inspection, Damage Mechanisms, Source Inspection, and Refractory. Each unit uses a structured approach to explain the topic, and much of the information is based on existing API documents that have been developed by recognized industry subject matter experts.
