This 820‐page handbook is your learning guide to passing all three main API ICP examinations.

It covers the full scope of:

API 510: Pressure Vessel Inspector

API 570: Piping Inspector

API 653: Above Ground Storage Tank Inspector

API ICP examinations are a stringent test of candidates’ ability to assimilate several thousand pages of code material and answer a large number of open and closed‐book exam questions over a 7 ½ hour exam session.

This handbook covers the API Bodies of Knowledge (BoK) for these three certification examinations in a structured way that makes the material easy to understand and learn. 270+ figures and flowcharts explain the code principles and content with specific reference to code clauses and exam question types used.

Learning methods are provided to help exam candidates understand ICP exam questions and compile their own learning program for the Boks. Sample questions and mock examinations are provided with worked calculation examples. The handbook is updated to match new API ICP exam formats and Alternative Question Types.
