ICP has been working with industry leaders to ensure that certified personnel are constantly meeting the demands that the industry expects. Starting on January 1, 2022, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities will be added to the ICP recertification requirements. These requirements will support certified individuals in enhancing and strengthening their knowledge, skill set, and overall value to industry operations. This also aligns ICP qualifications with other recognized professional credentials. Please review the CPD Requirements for additional information.
ICP has been working with industry leaders to ensure that our Auditor programs meet industry expectations. Through this process, we have revamped our Auditor Certification Programs (ACP) by flattening the structure across auditor roles for a more relevant and valuable certification. We will thus be sunsetting the current suite of six programs. The new program structure is titled Certified Auditor Professional (CAP) and will now consist of two certifications categories: Auditor Q1 and Auditor Q2. This change will take place starting in November 2021 and will replace the current ACP structure. For any questions, please contact Inspector@API.org.
For individuals who hold any ICP Auditor certification or have applied under the previous structure, please review the ICP Auditor Program Restructure factsheet.
We are excited to announce the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) accreditation of three ICP certification programs - 510, 570, and 653. This recognition further validates API's ongoing commitment to develop and deliver world-class programs to support the oil and natural gas industry.
