The course is well worth the time and money 11 Dec 2020

Twenty four years of working in the utility construction field, seven of those years as an EI. I feel the course material and the instruction received in the class were of great value. I myself have learned a lot of information, including how to take the API-1169 exam. I feel the course is well worth the time and money, the instructor, (Matt) is of great value.

The best Memphis Classroom Training 25 Aug 2020

I just want to thank you guys for a great class and the time that you guys have put into making the study material more user friendly. I could tell that the instructor really cared if I passed and everyone for that matter. That means a lot! I told the instructor that even if I didn’t pass, I didn’t regret spending the money for the class. He was a great teacher. When you can teach from material like that and still keep it from being boring that’s an accomplishment. I have a few people on my job that are supposed to take y’all next class.  If you guys ever teach another type of class in-person, I will sign up immediately. Thanks again!

Tricky API 1169 exam 24 Aug 2020

The wording was so tricky and almost incoherent on some of the questions it was frustrating. I’m glad I took the Velocity course going into this and I will recommend you for anyone I encounter in the future who will be taking the API 1169 exam.

Thank you 21 Aug 2020

Thanks Matt, for all your hard work, appreciate what you do on teaching this class.

Highly recommend Velocity Training 20 Aug 2020

Class training was what i needed. I've been told to NOT take any classes from others that have passed the API-1169 exam. I am glad I did not take their advice. One thing, as a CWI that helped me make my decision to take a class was the 40 PDH hours that will go towards my next 9-year renewal. The last day where the instructor went around the room putting students on spot was actually very helpful for me. I like where the instructor knew the material he was teaching very well. He could give you directions to the answers where he found them. Great class. Thanks for the knowledge and I will highly recommend VTES to other inspectors.

Class Far Exceed My Expectations 24 Jan 2019

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 24 Jan 2019

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 learned a lot from this class. I thought I knew more than I did. By the end of the week I am confident that I can pass my test. The quizzes helped. The exercises and shortcut to navigate through the references helped. It's a ton of work in a short time. I wish it could have been longer. Thanks for all the help.

Thank you, Matt, for being an Instructor. 13 Dec 2018

Matt was great with reference & knowledge of the course material. Helpful is covering & assisting on ways to look at the materials covered. I would recommend this lass to people looking to complete this API 1169 Course. Thank you, Matt, for being an Instructor.

Classroom training helped a lot! 13 Dec 2018

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

I would definitely recommend velocity to others. 13 Dec 2018

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.

Great Class! 29 Nov 2018

I thought this was a great preparation class for the API 1169 certification test, whether you are new to the industry or have many field years of experience. The instructor did a great job of helping understand the proper study skills and techniques needed for a successful outcome. There are many regulations and study documents and he did a great job of helping us understand how to read the test questions and determine which tool we need to use to be able to answer the questions correctly.

Very informative! 29 Nov 2018

This course was extremely helpful, especially for someone with limited knowledge in the field of study. The instructor far surpassed the term "knowledgeable". His understanding with the material and references was far beyond expectation. This course has helped me retain far more knowledge that i assumed it would and i would feel confident in take my exam with the information and training that i have received.

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! 25 Oct 2018

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.

Very informative! 25 Oct 2018

Good job. I learned a lot. The classroom style was great for me.

Well worth the time. 23 Aug 2018

I believe the class is well worth the time. The course teaches you how to use available references for the test. The class size I attended was small and I believe that helped a few in the classroom.

Great practice material! 23 Aug 2018

Great practice material that simulates the real test. Change nothing. Seems to be the best possible strategy.

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! 16 Aug 2018

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

Classroom training helped a lot! 16 Aug 2018

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! 16 Aug 2018

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. 16 Aug 2018

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! 16 Aug 2018

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.

Feel really confident! 16 Aug 2018

I feel really confident in my ability to now take the API 1169 test due to my experience in attending the Velocity prep course. Matt was a great instructor that was very knowledgeable in the material needed to take the exam.
