A Quick Guide to API 570 Certified Pipework Inspector Syllabus
A Quick Guide to API 570 Certified Pipework Inspector Syllabus data books are intended as simplified, easily accessed references to a range of technical subjects. The initial books in the series were published by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (Professional Engineering Publishing Ltd), written by the series editor Cliff Matthews. The series is now being extended to cover an increasing range of technical subjects by Matthews Engineering Publishing.
The concept of the Matthews Quick Guides is to provide condensed technical information on complex technical subjects in a pocket book format. Coverage includes the various regulations, codes and standards relevant to the subject. These can be difficult to understand in their full form, so the Quick Guides try to pick out the key points and explain them in straightforward terms. This of course means that each guide can only cover the main points of its subject – it is not always possible to explain everything in great depth.

The difficulty comes when, in using these codes in the context of the API ICP examinations, it is necessary to distil both approaches down to a single style of ICP examination question (always of multiple choice, single answer format).
