In this module you shall learn about:
Our e-learning services and benefits,
Know about API certifications in general and API SIRE in particular,
How to apply and
What you should expect on exam day
You may appreciate the fact that API wants to verify your understanding of the topics and hence the exam questions are mostly rephrased and given in the context of a scenario.
We shall provide you with all the knowledge and information you need to know in order to pass the API SIRE exam.
We shall explain the concepts and where necessary, shall elaborate by giving examples and pictures.
We shall provide you with flash cards for quick reference
We shall highlight areas that are potential exam questions
We shall provide you with three sets of mock exam questions that are specifically designed in line with the spirit of API exam questions.
Our course editors are all qualified API SIRE Inspectors as well as experienced inspection engineers who have edited the course based on the latest revision of study material, who have years of industry experience and many have passed the exam for the past 3 years, so, they are fairly up-to-date.
Our course content goes through seven check points to ensure that it is easy to understand, focussed on the body of knowledge and is in line with ISO 29990:2010 Learning services for non-formal education and training; so you know what you are expected to learn at the end of each module.
Your study plan can be based on four definite leads to help you understand what type of questions to expect during examination. These are:
1- API SIRE reference materials (see Module 2 or API SIRE Body of Knowledge)
2- Experience of other candidates who attempted the exam
3- Mock exam questions ( see module 21)
4- Exam Score Report showing the study areas versus number of question (see module 2)
Regardless of which study plan you may wish to take or which training course you opt for; these leads shall help you focus your efforts and use them as a pulse check to ensure that you are on the right track.
You can start the self study by obtaining the reference study materials and start self study.
Obviously, you would save some money but instead may be prone to make some silly mistakes that can cost you the success in the API SIRE exam that you rightfully deserve; miss the chance to review our latest question bank based on real API score sheets; miss those key points and potential exam questions presented by our team of course instructors in the form of flash cards plus missing the all important concepts that what we offer to make your life easier right from the beginning in the form of 20 sets of E-learning course modules.
Your approach and study plan is also very important. If you merely memorize the facts and figures without fully understanding the concepts, there is still a high chance of getting the answer wrong, because API exam questions are often rephrased. In other words, API questions do not use statements from codes and recommended practices word by word (ad verbatim) except for day to day routine information that an inspector is expected to know (API calls these type of exam questions as ”Practical Questions). API wants to verify your understanding of concepts and how you use the recommended practices, codes and standards to perform as a source inspector of rotating equipment.
You can choose our training package that has the advantage of explaining core principles and concepts while our flash cards and mock questions are in line with actual API SIRE exam questions aimed at helping you understand the concepts and how to apply them; and how to handle the trick questions.
We shall explain all the topics in sufficient detail so the course would benefit all candidates with any level of knowledge and expertise, that is, the less experienced candidates would learn the basics while the more experienced candidates could refresh their knowledge.
Our training approach helps you solve any relevant questions within any context and scenario, since you would be capturing the concept, principle and the theory rather than memorizing some numbers or facts without understanding the underlying reason or how it is applied.
