Great Class

INSTRUCTOR DID A GREAT JOB.

Impressive Classroom Training

The instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to bring "real life examples" into the classroom. I also appreciated the fact that he did not allow students to spend time telling "war stories". The class was straight forward, and he was able to help those individuals with little experience in the pipeline world.

The hands-on aspect of the course is most beneficial. Learning to access the regulations quickly was a great help.

STRONGLY recommend

Without going thru the training, being removed from classroom setting, as I have been. I feel that it would have been extremely hard to pass this test. The instructor was very helpful with total knowledge of information and building confidence with test material. I would STRONGLY recommend this to anyone that is planning to take the API 1169. Great instructor and awesome tutorial.

Great Class

It showed me how to approach the available reference material in a manner that made it less intimidating. The knowledge of actual exam conditions is invaluable. The study information is broken down to the most important information needed to pass the test and be knowledgeable on the process.

Awesome Class

It has been a great experience being in the classroom setting taking the exam preparation course! I think it does help more than the online studying!!!

Confident About Passing

The instructor is an excellent instructor and cares for each of his students in helping them pass the 1169 test. I was pleased with what I learned about pipelines during the class time even if I wasn't doing it to be able to pass the test.

I WILL be recommending Velocity Training

I feel that the API 1169 training course has definitively given me the confidence and knowledge that I was lacking to successfully take and pass the test. I WILL be recommending Velocity Training to anyone that I find out that is going to take the test. I am very happy that I decided to take the training course.

Excellent course

It's one of the best courses I have attended.

Experience was great.

The classroom setting is by far the best way to learn the material due to the instructor being able to stop and explain in detail. having classroom discussion is also a way to retain and learn from others. Overall my experience was great.

Very Helpful

I don't think I would have passed the exam without this class.

Class Far Exceed My Expectations

I would like to say that the presentation of the course has a lot to do with the acceptance of the material presented, Matt from the onset of the course showed and administrated his knowledge of the subject matter, which I must say would be nice if a lot more instructors would demonstrate. In my experience it was indeed a pleasure to be put through such a rigorous ordeal of intense bombardment of knowledge and still come out a sane man. Thanks to all for your patience and support. To the VTES training and MR. Matt, I would definitely recommend this training and under Matt's instruction. QA NACE 3 Inspector, at Sasol LCCP (Lake Charles Chemical Project) – 4 yrs.

Good Class -- Good Exercises -- Good Instructor

I started in this industry in 1971, in the NDE field and have worked pipeline, nuclear, aerospace, refineries, combine cycle simple cycle power-plants, and compressor stations, all in the inspection field. Before coming to this class everyone asks me why I was taking this course, that I was very knowledgeable in all aspects of pipeline inspection. Well at first, I thought well yea maybe I should just take the test, but I do not like tests, I am not a good test taker and did not want to spend weeks picking up the wrong book to study for something that I hear from different people, my test was all welding or my test was all environmental. I decided to take the class. From the first day of class, it was very refreshing, and I was going over things I have not used in years, in fact there has been a lot of revisions of some things. One big thing right away was the fact of keeping records for the life of the project or facility. It used to be 7 years, but I can remember back when a pipeline project was completed, they threw all the radiographs and reader sheets in the ditch with the backfill. Instructor Matt covered a lot of material in a short few days and going over material, spending extra time with students as needed, giving all 20 students in the class the confidence of not only passing the API-1169 exam, but to make them a better inspector. I always like to make sure that all my inspectors have the right tools (specs. codes, alignment sheets, permit books, etc.) to do their job and be part of the inspection team and the API-1169 certification opens their eyes of what they need. As long as there are instructors like Matt Wearsch instructing this course, there will be a lot better inspectors in the field. Thanks Matt!!! Chief Inspector Sunoco/ETC Mariner East Spread 3 – 48 yrs.

I think the time was right and the instructor offered to go above the time if anyone was lagging or needed help.

Thank you, Matt, for being an Instructor.

Classroom training helped a lot!

Extremely engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Course material was very comprehensive.

I would definitely recommend velocity to others.

I came mainly for the course material and to get more familiar with overall pipeline work (apart from my background). I feel the course exceeded my expectations in this regard and although I do not necessarily need the certification, I am confident the course prepared me for the test. Because most other people in the class are dependent on passing the test, I appreciate the amount of time Matt took ensuring their exam readiness. Assuming that other courses are run similarly, I would definitely recommend velocity to others.

Classroom training helped a lot!

Matt was an awesome teacher. His knowledge base of the material was right on point. I'm still very nervous test taker, but with his guidance and all of the practice material I feel I have a better idea of what to expect. I will highly recommend this course to anyone.

Classroom course is the best!

Classroom course is the best way to approach this certification. I don't think anyone would do as well on the actual test if they studied on their own or used online course. The trainer is well versed in all aspects of the API 1169 system and helped in so many ways to make me understand what needs to be remembered and where to go to find the answers.

I feel confident in sitting for the API 1169 exam after sitting through this class!

I feel confident in sitting for the API 1169 exam after sitting through this class. VTES has a high pass rate and I am confident I will pass the exam based on information and training presented. I did learn a lot of new information and found the class fun and entertaining, not the usual daily humdrum of repetition. Thanks Again for all the assistance.

Extremely knowledgeable!

This class was very helpful and very intense. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable.

Classroom training helped a lot!

I feel that the classroom training helps alot. There is alot of information to cover in a short period of time. The instructor helped us to utilize the resources available to us as study material and really helped with the navigation of the information (best way/place to find information). Coming from a survey background I had to take a different learning approach with the information but he really broke things down and helped with the transition. He keeps things interesting and fun which makes for easier retention of information.

I feel confident!

Before I even started my in classroom training with an instructor I was taking the 90 day online class. I had already recommended VELOCITY to several people because of how good the material was. Once I arrived on Monday, August 13th for my class I started to understand the material better and how to use the references almost IMMEDIATELY. Matt is a very gifted and well educated instructor and was truly able to help me as well as the other students. He knew the material front and back and also had personal experiences in the field; using this knowledge he was able to help paint pictures for us to understand and grasp the material better. I'm taking my exam Friday, August 17th and I feel confident enough that I'll pass it.

Knowledge of API 1169 is unmatched and very helpful.

Matt was very thorough in his instruction and made sure that each question was addressed. His knowledge of API 1169 is unmatched and very helpful in preparing attendees for the certification exam. I would recommend this training for anyone in leadership role or inspection role for the pipeline industry.

I feel better prepared!

The classroom training, I feel is the best way to study for an exam. I had a great learning experience in class. The instructor, Matt, was very knowledgeable and patient with the students. I feel better prepared for the 1169 exam due to the classroom training. I will keep VTES in mind for all my additional future studies.

This is the ONLY way to go!

The Course helped extremely, the instructor was patient with all the students to ensure the knowledge was learned by each of the students. I have taken 2 of the online courses and the in-class course was a lot more hands-on and one on one time if needed, if weaker in on subject more than another. I would highly recommend this class to any inspectors or anyone in the position to need to know this knowledge or how to prepare for this API 1169 exam. This is the ONLY way to go!

Highly recommend!

Would recommend this class to anyone.

I have enjoyed the classroom training. The instructor was very upbeat. I learned a lot and I would recommend this class to anyone.

Class was everything that I was hoping it would be.

The class was everything that I was hoping it would be after reading all reviews online. Definitely held up to its expectations. I especially liked the size of our class. It gave us more individual time to have 1 on 1 conversations about any difficulties understanding sections of the material.

Very confident!

I feel very confident that I will do well on the test.

Very educated & the overall experience was great.

The class was very informative & well prepared. The instructor was very educated & the overall experience was great. Learned a lot.

This was a great course and helped me very much due to the fact I have no pipeline experience. Helped me understand pipeline inspector responsibility's.

MY EXPERIENCE AT VTES HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL!

I HAVE ENJOYED THIS TRAINING PROGRAM. THE INSTRUCTOR MATT WAS PROFESSIONAL IN EVERY WAY. COMPARED TO OTHER API, AWS AND ASNT TRAINING COURSES I HAVE TAKEN, MY EXPERIENCE AT VTES HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL.

Matt was very friendly and informative. I was very unsure about taking the API 1169 exam, but I feel more confident after taking this course. Matt was awesome and really got everyone involved with the course material.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS CLASS!

I HAVE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE. FEELING CONFIDENT GOING INTO THE TEST BEING INFORMED OF ELIMINATION TECHNIQUES, NAVIGATION THROUGHOUT ALL DOCUMENTS, AND SO MUCH MORE. I APPRECIATE THE TIME AND EFFORT PUT INTO THE CLASS FOR OUR LEANING BENEFIT.

Fabulous job

The instructor Matt did a fabulous job of conducting the class. I feel that I have received a great deal of 1169 information. Thank you Matt.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Thanks! Preliminary pass! I was nervous! I followed training recommendations, I did fine. I felt great on 80 quest, marked 20 for more review.

Great experience!

It has been a great experience been inside class room taking the exam preparation course! I think it does helps more than the online studying!!!

Excellent instructor

Matt is an excellent instructor and cares for each of his students in helping them pass the 1169 test. I was pleased with what I learned about pipelines during the class time even if I wasn't doing it to be able to pass the test.

Confidence and knowledge!

I feel that the API 1169 training course has definitively given me the confidence and knowledge that I was lacking to successfully take and pass the test. I WILL be recommending Velocity Training to anyone that I find out that is going to take the test. I am very happy that I decided to take the training course.

Really enjoyed this class!

I have really enjoyed this class. I have already recommended 2 friends to the class.

Very informative!

The course and classroom training experience were great it was very informative, and all questions were answered. I will recommend this course to anyone interested in the 1169 certification.

the course is most beneficial!

The hands-on aspect of the course is most beneficial. Learning to access the regulations quickly was a great help.

I would STRONGLY recommend!

Without going thru the training, being removed from class room setting, as I have been. I feel that it would have been extremely hard to pass this test. Matt was very helpful with total knowledge of information and building confidence with test material. I would STRONGLY recommend this to anyone that is planning to take the API 1169. Great instructor and awesome tutorial.

Most important information needed!

It showed me how to approach the available reference material in a manner that made it less intimidating. The knowledge of actual exam conditions is invaluable. The study information is broken down to the most important information needed to pass the test and be knowledgeable on the process.

My experience was great.

The classroom setting is by far the best way to learn the material due to the instructor being able to stop and explain in detail. Having classroom discussion is also a way to retain and learn from others. Overall my experience was great.

One of the best courses!

Excellent course! A white board was missing but it's one of the best courses I have attended. Congratulations!

Class has opened my eyes!

Class has opened my eyes, I am looking forward to taking the 1169 and feel that Matt has helped in both the knowledge and right frame of mind for taking this exam.

Extremely helpful

Matt was extremely helpful and his experience and knowledge of the testing procedures as well as all facets of the material from the regulations is amazing.

Very good!

The classroom lessen were very good. Matt was the best!!

A lot more insight

I am glad I decided to take the API 1169 course. I have a lot more insight to what an inspector really is all about.

GREAT CLASS

Enjoyed the class and will recommend it to anyone preparing to take the API 1169 exam.

It was a fine course!

It was a fine course. I learned what was going to be on the exam and what to study.

Recommend Velocity

Mr. Matt is a AWESOME instructor that makes the class fun, to the point that I wanted to absorb all the information that he was teaching. I have taken several in classroom training's and this one has been the most enjoyable. I have already recommended Velocity to my coworkers and friends who are pursuing a API 1169 certification preparatory class. THANKS, Lynn Unger

Very knowledgeable!

Matt was excellent. I felt he really cared about my training. He is very knowledgeable on all parts of the API 1169.

Helpful!

The course was very helpful. The assistance with learning how to navigate the material available for reference was invaluable. The assistance with learning what to expect at the testing center was helpful as well.

Very good class, very informative.

Very good class, very informative.

Showed a ton of knowledge!

I learned quite a bit from Mr. Matt as he showed a ton of knowledge from API material to all the regulations and terms. He made the classroom experience really laid back and didn't make anyone feel embarrassed to ask any questions. He treated everyone with the upmost respect and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to take a course for the 1169 test.

Overall great!

The training was very helpful. The material and feedback covered was helpful in retaining the information that was gone over during the class. The modules were very helpful in understanding the processes, great for listening to at night for extra homework. For the people that didn't get signed up for the test window during the class window, the modules need to be available longer for study references. Overall great class.

Very informative!

This course was very informative.

Thankful!

Matt has good understanding of the subject, and also makes every effort to connect with the individuals in the class. I noticed this on the first hour of the first class session, when Matt learned each student’s name and continued to use first names the entire course. I am thankful for the opportunity I had to participate in this training.

Good Job!

I feel like the training did a good job of teaching the class the appropriate way to take the API 1169 exam. Understanding the Body of Knowledge is important, but it is also important to know which resources will be available during the exam, and what resources to consult for specific questions.

A lot to learn in 3 days!

A lot to learn in 3 days!

Good review!

Good review and refresher of the industry standards. I have forgotten more than I remember.

I feel the course was very informative and instructor did excellent job interacting with class and covering required material.

Thank you! I would have never passed it if it wasn't for the study materials you provided.

Very educational!

Very educational, lot to absorb but we had a great teacher, thank you.

Good Class!

Good Class.

GREAT JOB!

Matt was very knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to attend training with. One of the best Instructors I've taken with any Certification course. GREAT JOB!

Very knowledgeable!

Matt was very knowledgeable and had a teacher’s heart. Was patient with those (me) who struggled with some of the material covered and was very engaging. Kudos for memorizing every student's name, this enabled him to better interact and relate to the class.

This class is a must!

This class is a must for me to be able to pass.

Very helpful!

This class was very helpful for studying for the API 1169 test. The instructor was very knowledgeable about what he was teaching. The instructor had a good sense of humor and made the class enjoyable.

I’ll definitely recommend VTES to others!

For being as intense as it was, as it had to be, the training was methodical and thoughtful and very well structured. As mentioned, I’ll definitely recommend VTES to others. Regarding the instructor, Matt was great -- kept code interesting, endured to some light-hearted ridicule and grief, and certainly returned the challenges. He was appreciated by all of the students.

Had the knowledge we needed.

Instructor was cool and had a great way of making sure we had the knowledge we needed.

Very knowledgeable!

It was very informative. The instructor was very knowledgeable.

Boost my confidence!

Instructor worked with us personally and helped boost my confidence.

Professional presentation!

Very knowledgeable and professional presentation. Instructor took the time to answer all questions and explain discrepancies. As enjoyable of a class as I have attended.

Designed to help understand!

This class is clearly designed to help understand the criteria of the testing. In addition, it highlighted areas that each inspector could identify as a lack of knowledge at a personal level. This information will no doubt benefit our Companies pursuit of due diligence and excellence in the construction world. The take away is knowledge and learning of rules and Regulations the side effect is the team will excel on test day. Great class!

More confident!

Class was a great help, made me feel more confident in taking the test.

I got a lot out of the class!

The class and classroom were great, I got a lot out of the class and Matt was great helping me get to where I needed to be!!!!!

Very knowledgeable!

Over all the class helped me understand guidelines that must be followed in the oil industry. Trying to understand and follow some the train of thought on how questions were developed on the test was extremely frustrating. This course hopefully will allow me to be successful on test day. Our instructor overall was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and tried to give us hints on how to prepare for test day.

I highly recommend this prep course.

Before this class I felt very stressed and doubtful of passing the test. With Matts help, I feel that I can walk in knowing what to expect, how to use my references, and my eyes were opened to great resources that I wasn't aware of before. I highly recommend this prep course.
