CodeWest has provided technical codes and standards training to industry professionals since 1990. We presented our first – and THE first – API-510 Exam Prep Course over 22 years ago. Since that first 510 course we have developed API-570 Process Piping and API-653 Storage Tank Exam Prep Courses as well.

CodeWest has trained almost 10000 candidates for the American Petroleum Institute (API) Inspector Certification Program exams through our US public exam prep courses alone.

CodeWest is certified under the API Training Provider Certification Program for the API-510, 570 and 653 Exam prep Courses presented in our public format courses in the US. This requires establishing a written quality program and undergoing a rigorous audit to obtain the certification.

We have also developed courses covering ASME Section IX, VIII Div. 1 and ASME V. API 650 and 653 can be covered in a non-exam prep format too. These courses are typically suited to an individual customer’s requirements and presented at the customers facility. Emphasis may be placed on design, inspection, or just every day implementation of code requirements at any level.

We have presented classes in Korea, South Africa, Yemen, the United Kingdom, Japan, Mexico, Aruba, Venezuela, India, Trinidad, Turkey, Portugal, Argentina, Columbia, Canada and other locations. We can present the API Exam Prep Courses – as well as others - in Spanish throughout central and South America through our partner in Venezuela – National Training Center (contact Marcos Prol at:
