Advice on taking NDT courses, CSWIP, or API 570 certifications

Greetings everyone!!!

I am a piping inspector working in the middle east for 5 years and I am looking forward to expand my knowledge by taking courses/certification for NDT,CSWIP,or API 570.

Most of my job assignments were for newly constructed facilities or expansion of Refineries, Steel Plant and booster gas stations.

My questions are:
1.If I were to take NDT courses, which specific field would be worth the investment and in demand?
2. As I understand CSWIP 3.1 requires full understanding of welding theory and Inspection, I believe I have a basic idea of what its all about but I want to start at the beginning so which welding course will I take?Also, is CSWIP 3.0 better to take first prior to CSWIP 3.1?
3. To API 570 certified experts who are members of the forum, since most of my experiences were newly constructed piping installations, will API allow me to take the API 570 exams?

Comments and suggestions are welcome and I appreciate any advice that you can give me.
