Most energy companies have set a target of 100% of pipeline inspectors to be API 1169 certified by 2018. GIFS clients are already asking for, and giving preference to, inspectors who have obtained the certification.
Gulf Interstate Field Services (GIFS) has partnered with Velocity Training to offer API 1169 Exam Prep Courses. The training courses are on-line and self-paced which allows you to study according to your schedule. GIFS discounts for the training are:

- 90 Day Course - Normally $795; with GIFS Discount: $600
$195 off the posted rate
Velocity backs all 30 and 90 day training courses with a 100% guarantee. If any student fails the exam after completing their course, you simply need to send Velocity the fail letter and retest confirmation. Velocity will then set you up with another course for free leading up to your re-test date.
