HOUSTON, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The new online API 653 training course offered by Atlas API Training will greatly reduce the learning curve associated with preparing to become a certified API 653 tank inspector in the petro-chemical and power industries.
According to Hannon McLeod, president of Atlas API Training, "The slump in the Oil and Gas Industry has caused many seasoned inspectors to change careers. This has left a void for experienced and certified inspection personnel. Many companies are requiring an inspector to carry more certifications to be considered for a position within their organization. This includes many companies outside the United States. Some countries are now requiring US personnel to have a degree or at the least a certification in order to obtain a work visa. The API 653 certification is being required by more and more facilities."
The Atlas API Training's comprehensive API 653 exam prep course is the most thorough in the industry. The course makes preparation for the certification exam much more convenient for the student. The course can be accessed from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. No lost time at work, travel, hotel, and meal or other expenses related to actual classroom training. The fact that this is an online course means that students can take the class in their own timeframe, wherever they are, even on a smartphone or tablet.
