API 653: Tank Repair and Inspection

Online Training Course for the API 653 Exam


API 653 Pass Rate

Over 95% of our online training students pass the API 653 Tank Repair & Inspection Exam. Our online training material is designed to maximize your exam prep efficiency and help you pass the test on the first try.

“I just took the 653 exams, and I can say that If it wasn’t for the course being online, I would not have been able to pass the exam without going to a forty-hour course. I would have been out of pocket at least $4,300 for the course and hotel etc. I recommend all of Atlas’ training to all my co-workers.

Overview of the API 653 Course Study Material

This API 653 training course online is 60 hours long. This is the easiest and least expensive way to prepare for the tank inspector certification exam. This training is self-paced. You can stop and start whenever you like. Your stopping point is bookmarked so you can pick back up where you left off. You can repeat the entire course, or individual lessons that you would like to review. Work at your own pace. You will never be rushed, and you will never be slowed down. You can email your questions to the instructor for quick answers when you need help.

There are practice quizzes throughout the API 653-course study material along with timed, practice exams at the end of the lessons. There are over 1,000 exam type questions in the quizzes to help you become familiar with the kind of content that will be asked on the actual exam. This is a significant part of the Atlas API training. The timed practice tests are beneficial in letting you know how well prepared you are. There are also three additional practice tests that are made up of API 653 exam questions available to download. There are audio flashcards containing questions and answers that can be listened to while driving, at the office, or just relaxing at home.

Training online is the best option for the busy industrial professional. The course is open for 120 days after purchase. We can make exceptions to this if you contact us.

    Please Note the Following:

    Our goal at Atlas is to provide you the necessary tools to pass the certification exam the very first time you try. Many of our students have considered themselves more hands-on when it comes to training courses. After taking our online training courses, these students have discovered that not only is online training a more economical way to prepare for a certification exam, but that online training is just a better way to learn the material. With the online training course, the student can start and stop whenever he/she may want. Students may also progress at their own pace, repeat material when needed, and use the interactive quizzes to train. This is by far the easiest way to study. The Atlas 48 hour money back guarantee means that you can check out the course with zero risks. If you are not happy with your purchase, we will gladly refund your money with no questions asked.
