Please be aware that an API-recognized certification may only be obtained directly through API by taking an API developed examination. These examinations are administered only through API’s contracted third party exam delivery provider (Prometric), and API does not authorize any other organizations to offer its examinations on its behalf.
Once you become certified by API, your certificate is globally recognized, and your credentials can be verified in our online ICP directory (www.api.org/icpdirectory). There is no need to apply or register with another organizations’ National Registry. If you have any questions about validating a certification, your certification, how to be certified or the API 1169, please contact API’s Individual Certification Programs (ICP) by phone (202) 682-8064 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
