API RP 1169, 2nd Edition – Pipeline Construction Inspection
API 1169 is a certification program offered by the American Petroleum Institute (API) that validates the competency of pipeline inspectors involved in the construction, inspection, and maintenance of oil and gas pipelines. The certification is based on API’s Recommended Practice 1169 (RP 1169) for pipeline inspector competency, which provides guidelines for the knowledge and skills required of pipeline inspectors.
To obtain API 1169 certification, candidates must meet certain eligibility requirements and pass a computer-based exam that covers topics such as pipeline regulations, inspection techniques, materials and construction, and pipeline maintenance and repair. The exam consists of 120 multiple-choice questions and must be completed within 3.5 hours.
API 1169 certification is increasingly being required by employers and regulatory agencies to ensure that pipeline inspectors have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their job duties effectively and safely. The certification demonstrates that the holder has a comprehensive understanding of pipeline construction, inspection, and maintenance practices, as well as the applicable industry standards and regulations.
API 1169 certification is valid for three years, after which it must be renewed by meeting certain continuing education and work experience requirements. The program is part of API’s efforts to promote safe and reliable pipeline operations and to ensure the competency of the personnel involved in the construction, inspection, and maintenance of oil and gas pipelines.
