API Releases 2018 Schedule for Individual Certification Program

Inspectioneering Staff, August 15, 2017

The American Petroleum Institute has released the 2018 Schedule for its Individual Certification Programs (ICP).  Individual Certification Programs have been offered by the American Petroleum Institute (API) since 1989 as a way to test the knowledge and document the experience of inspection and technical personnel. These programs provide certification for several different API standards. Most API ICPs remain valid for three-year terms and can be renewed after that period.

API Individual Certifications are powerful assets for inspectors and other personnel looking to advance their careers. They enable a person to separate themselves from the pack by demonstrating their knowledge, skills, and experience to potential employers or clients. Over 23,000 certified inspectors now exist in 118 different countries worldwide. Those 23,000 individuals hold over 41,000 certificates.
