Aicip vs Api 510

Hi,

Iv been thinking about doing my Aicip for a while now and was about to book the course when someone told me i would be better off doing Api 510 so you can work overseas as well. Which appealed to me as there is apparently a lot of work coming up in Indonesia.

Can anyone tell me if this is true. And what are the key differences between the two if any?
Is Aicip only recognized/used in Australia?

Dan

Hello Dan,
Im an API 510 holder, and can honestly say that this is the first time I have heard of AICIP.

I know this doesn't really answer your questions, but might give some idea about the portability of the scheme.

Dan,
AICIP is an Australian qualification run by the WTIA. I believe it is applicable to inspections of in-service pressure equipment subject to Australian Standards and legislation. It is not recognized as far as I know by US and other international companies , particularly in the oil & gas sector.
Research and know the market you are aiming at.
Cheers, Nick
