API 571 discusses damage mechanisms relevant to oil refineries but can also be extrapolated to petrochemical and various industrial contexts. For each damage mechanism delineated, the exam assesses the following aspects: Mechanism Name, Damage Description, Affected Materials, Critical Factors, Impacted Units or Equipment, Appearance or Morphology of Damage, Prevention/Mitigation Strategies, and Inspection and Monitoring Techniques.

  1. API 580 – Risk Based Inspection

The API 580 exam encompasses fundamental minimum and recommended components for establishing, executing, and sustaining a Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) program. Additionally, the exam addresses guidance for owner-users, operators, and equipment designers regarding the creation and execution of an inspection regimen for pressure-containing equipment.

The API 580 Risk-Based Inspection certification examination evaluates an individual’s comprehension and proficiency in the domain of Risk-Based Inspection. The Body of Knowledge for the API 580 exam is rooted in API RP 580 Risk-Based Inspection.
