BODY OF KNOWLEDGEAPI-1169 PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION INSPECTORCERTIFICATION EXAMINATIONApril, August and December 2017API 1169 Pipeline Construction Inspectors must have a broad knowledge base relating to construction of newonshore pipeline construction. This knowledge base, at a minimum, includes such topics as inspectorresponsibilities, personnel and general pipeline safety, environmental and pollution control, and general pipelineconstruction inspection. The API 1169 Pipeline Construction Inspector Certification Examination is designed todetermine if applicants have such knowledge.Candidates will be given three hours to complete the 100-questions examination on a computer. Questions for theexamination are multiple-choice and personal reference materials are not permitted to be brought into the computertesting centers. US and Canadian government based reference materials will be provided to all the candidates duringthe exam on their computer monitors. Candidates may choose to use either set of references to answer all questions.Please see page two of the API 1169 Effectivity Sheet for a complete list of the documents that will be availableduring the exam.Please note: This exam has been reviewed and approved by Canadian experts for use by the Canadian pipelineindustry. When a reference has a Canadian equivalent, (for example API 1104 and CSA Z662-15), candidate maychoose to study either the American or Canadian reference(s) with the assurance that exam questions will focus onareas where the technical content overlaps.Please note that API has chosen to use certain standards and codes as representative of best practices within thepipeline industry. Local regulations may differ and it is the responsibility of the pipeline inspector to know andunderstand the applicable rules and regulations for the area where the pipeline project is undertaken. For this reason,some questions may only be answered using US OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910 and 29 CFR 1926). Thesequestions are clearly identified in the exam and will say “according to OSHA” in order that applicants will know touse the OSHA regulations provided during the exam to answer these questions.To determine whether the applicants have sufficient knowledge of inspection practices and related topics, aminimum of one question from each main category listed within this Body of Knowledge will be included on theAPI certification examination. Only information covered in one of the referenced materials listed in this body ofknowledge will be utilized for the examination questions.Page 1 of 91169 BOK 2017
