Event Details

Skystone International Inc. presents:

We at Codewest have established an outstanding and consistent record with our course for preparation for the API 1169 inspector examination. We have successfully trained thousands of API 510/570/653 inspectors and we have now launched this service for prospective API 1169 inspectors with a 90% success rate.


The development of this course presented many challenges not the least of which is the myriad documents contained in the Body of Knowledge for this examination. It is totally impossible to structure course material to cover everything listed so we had to decide which of the described documents were most relevant and likely to be sources for exam questions. Also, API has significantly altered the applicable documents, within the Body of Knowledge (BOK) over the first two – three years of the program. A huge change for the April 2017 exam has been implemented by API.


The Codewest course text contains a condensation of selected codes/standards as well as hundreds of sample questions likely to be encountered on the closed book 100 question exam. We are confident that if the student devotes the necessary effort, working after class, within this text that positive results will result.


Unlike our other courses we do not offer a “pre-course study guide” electing instead to recommend that the student devote pre-course activity to reading the materials that will not be included in the course. All applicable documents are listed below – both those included in the course and the ones that constitute recommended reading. Should you have any questions or require additional information please contact Marvin Coats at or 830 832 2112.
