API Establishes Auditor Certification Program

Jan. 15, 2016
API launches new certification program for quality systems auditors.

The American Petroleum Institute's Global Industry Services department (API Global) establishes a new, comprehensive Auditor Certification Program, which is the first to be developed by industry experts, according to the organization. Company personnel and self-employed individuals can register to be trained, tested and certified to audit various quality management programs according to API's globally recognized standards.

Certification candidates must provide proof of appropriate education, qualifications, training and audit logs as part of the application and pre-qualification process. They must also sit for and pass a 150-question exam, administered worldwide at Prometric computer testing centers. The first exams will be offered March 1-15, 2016, and the registration deadline is February 5. API plans to hold three auditor certification exam periods per year.

Each of the three levels of certification can be obtained with a focus on either API Spec Q1 (Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Manufacturing Organizations) or API Spec Q2 (Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Service Supply Organizations).
