API run RBI courses based on their standards. Relevant API-issued certification would appear to be beneficial, though whether you can gain certification without the requisite experience is doubtful.

I have worked in an O&G RBI-environment as an Inspection Engineer. Its such a mixture of specialities which can only be provided by a team of specialists each contributing to the effectiveness of the scheme. Even the specialites such as corrosion, metallurgy, process, inspection will not guarantee a good scheme as data collection and management is of such very high importanceto the scheme quality.

Best of luck in your endeavours, Anwar

You need to do API 580 Certification. Pre requisite is API 510.
Thanks.

Re: RBI
The API endorsement in RP 580 Risk Based Inspection is an extension of the base inspector certification process. You need to hold one of the current main inspector certificates 510, 570 or 653 to sit the exam.

I would point out that most of the major guidance documents on RBI API 580, 581 and the UK HSE best practice identifies RBI as a process with multiple inputs and not the product of one individual. Holding the API RBI endorsement demonstrates an inspectors advanced knowledge of the 580 document not an endorsement that he is certified to perform RBI.
