API 510 training Course - Online Video Training for Exam Preparation (API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector)

I4I Academy provides API 510 training course (API 510 Pressure Vessel Inspector) - Online Video Training - for Exam Preparation and is 60 Hours (7.5 days) course and available online all over the world. Our Students Pass Rate in the API 510 Exam is 94.6 %

Hi, this is Bob Rasooli from I4I Academy. We know most people do not like online courses or do not see as effective as an in-person course; that is why we are using video training to simulate the in-person courses for our students.

I completed the API 510 exam training course through I4I academy.  The presented body of knowledge by Bob Rasooli was very comprehensive with detailed explanations.  His visual training aids, including an actual pressure vessel, was very helpful.  I would recommend this course to anyone interested in perusing the API 510 certification. I plan on taking his API 570 course next.

I took two online video training courses by Inspection 4 Industry LLC; API 510 Training Course and API 570 Training Course. 

Bob Rasooli has prepared videos in which he describes all main and essential aspects of related standards and exams in the best possible way. He explains everything in detail and covers all subject of the API 510 and API 570 exams. Undoubtedly Bob Rasooli is one of the best in teaching and preparation training for API exams. In addition to videos, each course consists of numerous questions and examples which helped me a lot to pass both of my exams. I highly recommend these training courses.

Each course comes with a handout which you need to review while/or after watching the videos. 

When you completed each video session and reviewed the corresponding handout, then you are connected to the practice question portal. You are going to answer the questions for each code section. The system lets you know if your answer is correct or wrong and provides you with code reference that question being taken.

You are going to take a final exam at the end of the course (50 questions open book and 100 questions close book similar to API 510 exam) and receive a certificate from I4I Academy (if you passed the exam). You can take the exam multiple times until you pass the exam.
