Thank you so much! Y'all are awesome. I passed my API 1169 exam!
I’d like to compliment you, Velocity Training, for building a great API 1169 Prep course. Cost, accessibility, ease of access and of course the in-depth information pertaining to all aspects of the API 1169 certification. I passed!
This course was exactly what I needed to get over the hurdle, boost my confidence and personal knowledge and now I feel 100% confident that I will pass the API 1169 EXAM after the third time. I can recommend this course of study with a clear heart to any one. This course is worth it and a must in my opinion. I wish I have chosen to take this course before taking my first API 1169 EXAM. I could have saved myself so much stress. I tip my hat to my instructor who gave a brilliant course. No one can do it better! I passed my exam!!
Instructor was very thorough and detailed regarding the information and definitely made sure that all students understood what was being explained. The venue was very nice and contributed to the experience. I would without question recommend this course to others. Passed exam!
Everything was great Passed
Very knowledgeable of the material and explains the content to the student.
This is exactly how all instructed classes should be taught.
The training and material covered was exceptional!
The instructor did a fantastic job of teaching the material to the group. He was very knowledgeable about the material and the API 1169 test.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and knew the material very well. The instructor took his time explaining all the material and answered everyone's questions.
Great Instructor. Very clear! THANK YOU Velocity Training! Passed the exam!
Excellent knowledge, excellent motivation, excellent with helpful hints on using our pcs, showing us test day expectations and pc tips on test day!! Excellent with creating a sense of urgency and encouraging us to desire to persevere! Thorough practices, homework and testing with a guy who has a genuine desire to see you succeed! Doesn't embarrass us or behave in a cocky manner and VERY approachable! Thank you to the instructor for giving me more than my money's worth! Passed API 1169 exam!
The class helped me better understand how to take the test exam for referencing questions ,and missing key points of knowledgeable information. I passed the exam
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. His concern for each and every student is evident, very unique and professional teaching style. No student was left behind, I highly recommend the classroom training. Thank You!!!!! Passed
I felt the class was very informative and appreciated the work load to study the material. I enjoy the different types of study habits the instructor tried to offer to help with retention. I passed the exam.
Communication/ teaching style excellent, pushed us to learn the material and kept it interesting I passed!
It was very informational
I LIKED THE COURSE. THE INSTRUCTOR REALLY KNEW EVERYTHING
Preliminary pass. I wanted to say thank you for a great class. Your way of teaching helped me pass. Thank you once again.
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!
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.
Thanks Matt, for all your hard work, appreciate what you do on teaching this class.
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.
Great course! Really learned and understood the material.
Very informative instructor and willing to work with students that needed help on computer. Thank you very much
THE INSTRUCTOR DID A GREAT JOB AND IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE IN THE API 1169. IT HELPS WHEN THE INSTRUCTOR WORKED IN THE TRADE.
It really helped me understand the material, and how to locate it in the Standards.
I just took the API 1169 prep class last week and passed the test on Friday. Matt's instruction with the prep was absolutely awesome and one of the best courses i have ever taken.
I just wanted to thank you again! I have told all the inspectors I know about you all!!!!

Extremely happy with the instructor in their teaching methods. I usually have a difficult time learning in classrooms, It was very easy to learn when teacher knows, wants you to learn, and succeed. I passed! Thanks!
The Instructor was very informative, patient and in tune with the class. This course helped me extremely in the resource department. It helped me to understand where to look up information and how to detect items in the correct forms. Assigning the homework was a plus as well as it was an extension of the course that keeps the mind working. This course was very helpful. I give the Instructor 2 thumbs up and 5 stars.
I learned ALOT!

Thanks for the material! Top notch!
INSTRUCTOR DID A GREAT JOB.
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.
AWESOME instructor. He takes his time and explains it in a way that everybody can understand. You can tell that he cares if people pass or not.
Excellent instructor. Gathered a lot of knowledge I feel will be valuable on the test.
The instructor and the course VTES provides is very informative and was extremely helpful in preparing me for the test. I would suggest those that sign up for the class be prepared to spend a lot of time studying. In my opinion excellent course.

Really appreciated the instructor and the way he conducted the studies of the class. I really feel like he helped me to be not only prepared for the API 1169 exam...but I feel confident, that I will do a great job when I take my test.
Instructor was knowledgeable, engaging and presented information in a way that was easy to understand as well as being able to apply it to field use.
The instructor did a very a good job teaching the class. Glad to have a instructor that has had field experience.
I thought class was very strong and prepared me for test. Instructor was very thorough and very knowledgeable.
I felt the instructor was well versed on the subject and the class worth the time and money.
I enjoyed the course very much. I think without having this classroom led training, I would not have the same study habits and explanations for the material. Sr. Tech Specialist (Inspection Management) - 6 yrs.
Class was great. Commissioning Spec - 25 years
The instructor is very knowledgeable of all materials with a passion to teach material in a way that people retain and become better stewards of the profession of inspection. Pipeline Superintendent - 43 years in the regulated industry
Our instructor did a very swell job, he was very helpful to answer any question myself or others had about question pertaining to the study document or past experience. He was very good at giving analogies to help break down the understanding. Would recommend everyone to take the practice exam
Great class. The instructor was a wealth of knowledge.
Look forward to taking the test and passing. Thanks for the help
Everything about the class was helpful and informative.
It was a lot of information in just a few days, but the instructor was very helpful. I feel confident that I can pass after taking this class.

Excellent course, looking forward to taking the exam!
Instructors insight on test questions asked and experience with taking the test is greatly appreciated!!!
Great class. Extremely helpful.
The instructor is a wonderful, with extensive knowledge of the content and how to prepare for the exam. He truly cares that his students are learning material in a useful manner and is eager to help those who are struggling. Even when asked about questions outside the body of knowledge, the instructor uses his experience to help students understand. He is kind, courteous, and professional.
Good training, a very good instructor.
The course content was good and the exam taking techniques discussed were very helpful.
What made the course a real benefit was the knowledge of the instructor and the study material.
Class and instructor were just plain awesome. It was the perfect amount of joking around and professionalism to make the class fun but also get the point across of what’s needed to be known to be successful on the exam. Thank you all for all the help in preparation for this test, it was a huge help! I’ll definitely recommending you guys to others!
Excellent course. well delivered. Good mix of instruction and knowledge testing
Instructor was excellent
Great class, good prep for the certification.
The instructor was very knowledgeable on the material.
Good format. Instructor was good. Course was good prep to take test.
The instructor was very well prepared, demonstrated tons of industry knowledge and experience. He also gave us ample breaks and time to finish the quizzes and homework.
Good presentation skills and thorough knowledge of material. I really enjoyed that it was not just slide reading and was interactive with quizzes and learning modules.
I thought the instructor was knowledgeable and personable and took time to get to know each of us and to address our questions and concerns.
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 hands-on aspect of the course is most beneficial. Learning to access the regulations quickly was a great help.
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.
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.
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!!!
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 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.
It's one of the best courses I have attended.
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.
All the info that was given to me in the class I found very useful.
The Course was set up very well, materials were covered in an open class environment. I feel this class should be attended by all who are planning to sit for the API 1169 exam.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Was never a dull moment in his classroom which enabled all students to take this seriously but at the same time relax!
The instructor was very knowledgeable about the content and presented the material in a way that was easy to retain and reference.
GREAT CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE, INSTRUCTOR WAS VERY HANDS-ON AND FULL OF KNOWLEDGE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS CLASS TO ANYONE WANTING TO BE A BETTER PIPELINE INSPECTOR OR JUST TO BE A BETTER EMPLOYEE IN THE FIELD.
The class brought awareness to where to find the regulations for different construction related activities.
Informative class, knowledgeable instructor.
The instructor exhibited in-depth knowledge of the course material and presented a well-organized presentation. He took time to explain topics that were hard for some to grasp and did it in non-condescending matter. I'm confident I now have the ability to take and pass the API 1169 exam.
Instructor created an atmosphere that helped to learn and maintain the material.
I got a preliminary pass. Your class was very helpful, and I will recommend to anyone wanting to pursue the API 1169 certification.
The class was very well laid out, the instructor was great.
Very informative and the instructor was thorough covering the material discussed.
The instructor was very engaging. The material is quite dense, but he did a very good job of maintaining the studious environment and maintain the concentration of the students. He was extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. Overall this was a very helpful course and would be highly recommended for anyone planning to take the API 1169 exam.
Great prep course....understand much more about what to expect from the test
Took the API 1169 today and got a preliminary pass. Just wanted to say thank you for the course. You all have done a great job with prep course.
I don't think I would have passed the exam without this class.
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.
it was informative 510/570 inspector – 6 yrs.
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 it's all on point couldn't really ask for anything better! CWI Inspector – 9 yrs.
He was an awesome instructor. I was unable to pass API 1169 due to not knowing what material to study before taking this class. He gave material and his teaching abilities helped me retain a lot of information. Coating Inspector – 8 yrs.
I enjoyed the class. it was very informative. The whole experience, including the hotel, gets an A+ rating from me. Matt is AWESOME! COATING INSPECTOR – 7 yrs.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained the test where you could understand and very helpful in using the computer. ASSISTANT CHIEF INSPECTOR – 8 yrs.
The class taught me a lot about inspection and hope I can learn all I need to know. The instructor did a great job. Teamster - 12 years in pipeline industrial
The instructor is very good at presenting the material. When completed, we all walk away with a better understanding, of what is expected of us as Utility Inspectors. 3rd Party Utility Inspector – 10+ yrs.
Very informative. Well laid out and instructor very knowledgeable. ROW Agent – 12 yrs.
Class was interactive and engaging. Instructor had a wealth of knowledge I wish that I had at this moment. lol Thank you Matt!!!! CWI, Instrument Tech, BTJ Steam fitter – 34 yrs.
The Instructor was very helpful as well as knowledgeable of the test and materials. All in all was a good experience for me to take this class and learn more about referencing. Utility Inspector – 8 yrs.
Instructor had great knowledge of the course. Environmental Inspector – 14 yrs.
Great class and teacher Coating Inspector/ROW Supervisor – 14yrs.
Instructor stuck to the plan of training for the test. He did not run of course with personal stories unless it was related to the class. The expense and time I put into this class was worth it. Chief Inspector – 23 yrs.
This class was very helpful, and I would refer to other people.
Hands on use to the references was a real plus in understanding the references and what are in them. Focus on how to take the test with a "plan" has instill confidence.
The instructor did a great job getting the information across to all of us. Making us feel comfortable and positive on taking this exam. I think this class was done in a professional and timely manner covering all the basis needed to pass the test.
Ihe instruction was very good. The instructor took the time to make sure every student was comfortable in the material. Great class. I liked the structure of this class. It worked for my learning style very well.
The instructors style of teaching was perfect for our class was able to make sure we all knew how to look up and retain all learning material. Would highly recommend using this training class and teacher for future classes with our company. I feel fully ready to take and pass this test with some more studying in the areas that this training showed that I was deficient in.
Having been in the industry for 20yrs, I have been through a lot of training. This has got to be the best structured training I have ever been through and the instructor is top notch. Material and instruction were on point.
The class instruction and class material were presented in a very professional manner.
The instructor was great at picking up on individual needs and suggesting ways to address those needs. Very knowledgeable.
The instructor knew the material in and out. The style of presenting was the right mixture of learning and then testing that teachings.
The instructor was great, very engaging, a wealth of knowledge.
Excellent class. Instructor was very knowledgeable of the subject matter. Instructor was also very well versed in learning theory which set this class apart from similar test prep classes. Very well done and impressive.
This course compared to the other I had taken was the equivalent of driving a Pinto and then getting a Porsche. The material from the teacher to the computer modules was excellent. I feel I have been given the tools I need to successfully pass my exam. I will be telling others this is the course they need to sign up for. I think the time was right and the instructor offered to go above the time if anyone was lagging or needed help.
The Instructor was very knowledgeable API 1169 and provided a great training experience with amazing take home study and exam preparation practices. I felt the duration fell in line with my learning style
Teacher is very knowledgeable on all test questions
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.
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.
Extremely engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Course material was very comprehensive.
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.
Matt was awesome! Took the time to make sure everyone understood the material
Great course! Great teacher! Left me highly confident in my abilities to complete the API 1169 without fear of failing miserably. Big Thanks to Matt the Velocity team!
Great course! Great teacher! Left me highly confident in my abilities to complete the API 1169 without fear of failing miserably. Big Thanks to Matt the Velocity team!
Great instructor and will be recommending this course for many others.
Thank you for your support! You guys were such great help. I'm 100% satisfied and happy with your course you guys provided.
I've had many instructors of 39 yrs of service in the Houston Texas Fire Dept, Nace certification, and this instructor not only instruct, but teaches a way you can understand the material, he was very knowledgeable of the course material
I would recommend this classroom training to everyone.
HE DID A GREAT JOB ON MAKING SURE EACH AND EVERYONE OF US UNDERSTOOD HOW TO REFERENCE AN ALSO USE COMMON SENSE TEACHING US TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE CLASS. I WAS NOT ABLE TO SET MY EXAM DATE BEFORE THUR MY OWN FAULT BUT MATT WALKED ME THROUGH IT AFTER CLASS WISH I COULD HAVE GOTTEN A EARLIER OPEN DATE BUT I WILL BE FINE THANKS FOR THE COURSE AN THE KNOWLEDGE.
I found this course to be very informative. The instructor did an excellent job keeping me focused on the subject at hand.
Instructor took time to accurately explain and answer every question asked patiently.
Definitely gave me the confidence to take the API 1169 test. I learned a lot.
I strongly recommend the API 1169 study course if you want to pass test on first time around, very educational, all questions answered and beyond Matt showed a lot of professionalism his duties as a training instructor.
Instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable. I feel that this class well prepared me for the test.
Course was great, lots of information and Matt was very informative.
The instructor was very knowledgeable in the subjects that pertained to the 1169. I feel confident taking the exam after attending this class.
I strongly enjoyed this course, Inspector was knowledgeable and gave us sufficient breaks and not so much homework to overload us like some courses given.
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.
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.
Enjoyed the training and learned a lot.
Great Instructor and course!
Very good and very knowledgeable
Enjoyed the class as well as you can for 4 days of cramming all this information in my pea size brain but appreciated Matt's patients ! He was very helpful in training me thanks Steven Sumner GUNTUCKY !!!!!!!
Believe the course will help pass the API 1169 test.
I was reluctant on taking the training class. I found my instruction to be very knowledgeable and had a way to of delivering the material that actually made it fun. He gave good test suggestions as well as studying practices.
This was an exceptional course. I have been through many and this material was true to the subject matter and presented in a way that i had no issues understanding and retaining. The test taking tips were spot on for a timed multiple choice test.
Matt did an exceptional job in his presentation of all class materials; he was very knowledgeable of where the information was in all the reference material from the CFR's
Classroom was really good
The classroom tests were beneficial, everything was good.
Thought the class was helpful and very informative. The instructor had a very strong knowledge of the material. Would recommend the class to anyone taking the 1169.
Very knowledgeable on API 1169 and associated documents. Easy to understand. Very Helpful if one did not understand a section of material.
Matt has a lot of knowledge of the course, Very interesting class good learning atmosphere.
I appreciate the patience that was shown to each individual student, i felt that the instructor really cared about the success of each student. I felt that the instructor was reassuring to all of the students, which was very helpful because it created a calming atmosphere, and it instilled confidence in each of us.
Overall great experience! Quality of instruction was excellent. Would definitely recommend to others.
Great course. I was well prepared.
Good Job Matt. Thank for the Help!!!
I think Matt was a great instructor. He gave us the knowledge that he had in a way that we could understand. Classroom discussion was excellent also.
Instructor knowledge the best i have ever seen.
Enjoyed Matts sense of humor and his knowledge of the course subject. I will definitely recommend Velocity to everyone.
Matt is very knowledgeable!!! Great Class!!
He made sure that everyone understood or at least made the attempt. He knew the subject matter well and tried to get the important points across. He and questions to make sure he was getting thought to us . I think he did well.
Really enjoyed the classroom setting, instructor is very knowledgeable and would explain things in a way one could grasp the questions better.
The class was very helpful. The instructor Matt keep things entertaining while also make sure that the tools needed to pass the test were instilled into us. great class and great instructor.
Very pleased with class. Went into class very nervous & unprepared to take the upcoming exam. Instructor has broken down material exceptionally well. Looking forward to taking the exam & feel confident & prepared.
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 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.
Instructor was very informative.
The classroom training helps in retaining the information provided
I learned a lot of information as well as techniques and knowledge on where to find the information I need. Matt is a man who is very knowledgeable on the course information.
Good job. I learned a lot. The classroom style was great for me.
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 that simulates the real test. Change nothing. Seems to be the best possible strategy.
Instructor was very helpful.
I Loved IT! :) No! And I wouldn’t change the course at all
It was a great class!
The course materials and instructor was very informative and extremely helpful in helping me to understand the basics of pipeline construction.
The class was one of the best classes ever. With one of the best knowledgeable instructors I have had.
I enjoyed the class and have learned alot.....
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.
Matt did an awesome job, very well prepared in the training content and kelp the class involved. Thanks
Class was clear and concise, to the point. Not too much classroom time that would over work a student.
Instructor was very helpful in explaining the documentation that was presented in class, also made class fun not boring. Will highly recommend class to co-workers and friends.
This class was very helpful and very intense. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable.
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.
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.
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.
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 CLASS ROOM COURSE AND TRAINING WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EXPERIENCED SINCE I TOOK MY CWI COURSE WITH REAL EDUCATION. MATT THE INSTRUCTOR DID AN AWESOME JOB AND WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE MATERIAL AND DID A GREAT JOB AT MAKING SURE THAT EACH AND EVERY STUDENT UNDERSTOOD ALL MATERIAL. THANKS SO MUCH I WILL RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYBODY THAT WANTS TO GET ANY CERTIFICATIONS.
The instructor was awesome, but the room was too cold. 2x thumbs up!
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.
