Prometric to work with API to expand test taker access and convenience for the global certification of the petroleum and petrochemical profession

Prometric® has expanded its work with the American Petroleum Institute (API) for exam development and global administration of their Individual Certification Programs (ICP), including the introduction of Prometric’s ProProctor™ secure remote assessment solution. This multi-modal approach will leverage Prometric’s investment in its integrated exam content and delivery platform for both in-center and remote assessment to ensure consistent, reliable, and secure administration of API’s examinations anywhere in the world.

Since 1989, API has provided the petroleum and petrochemical industries with an independent and unbiased way to evaluate the knowledge and experience of technical and inspection personnel. API individual certification through ICP testing, developed in partnership with industry leaders and used with confidence worldwide, confirms that certified inspectors and personnel demonstrate the professional competence required to uphold public safety and ensure the successful administration of industry operations.

Regarding the future of the partnership, Sean Burke, Prometric’s Chief Client Officer, stated, “We are pleased that API has once again selected Prometric to be their assessment development and delivery partner, this time for both test center and remote assessment delivery. In collaboration with API, we have delivered more than 90,000 exams globally over the past decade for professionals working in the natural gas and oil industry. We are committed to leveraging our global scale and continued investment in innovative technology and operations to enable API assessment delivery wherever and whenever they are required.”
