Actually, an ASME Authorized Inspector is different than an Inspector certified under API provisions.

You would need to be in the employment of an ASME Authorized Inspection Agency or a Juridiction to be able to take the NAtional Board examination.

Better to contact the National Board at 614-888-8320 and get clear information.

You do not need to be in the employ of anyone to take the National Board Commission test. I just took it and passed, and have no job right now. You have to be in the employ of an AIA to get a commission, but you have 3 years after passing the testto do that.

Sir

I just read your forum message that you took AI exam without being employed by an AIA or jurisdiction.

Did you find it easier to get a job after securing passing grade in AI exam.

I am also planning to take up the AI exam, but i am not employed by AIA or jurisdiction.

Please provide your input about how to prepare for the exam.
