Our Pipeline Inspector Training Program (API 1169) is making a positive impact in the industry. Read this review of one of EWN’s clients that completed the course and passed the API 1169 Certification Exam with flying colors! Greetings, I just thought I would drop EWN this note regarding your Pipeline Inspector Program. I am pleased to say that I was the very first person, according to your records, to sign-up, take, and complete this course. I decide to take this program, in my preparation for the American Petroleum Institute 1169 Pipeline Inspector Course. I found your program to be extremely beneficial in preparing me for API 1169.
