Upgrading IPEI

Pressure Vessels and Pressure Piping to IPEI

Persons certified as In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector Certificate of Competency (Pressure Vessels and Pressure Piping) are eligible to upgrade their Certificate of Competency to In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector Certificate of Competency if they have subsequently passed the National Board In-Service Commission examination and have the required in-service boiler inspection experience or equivalent.

To obtain an upgraded Certificate of Competency, the candidate would follow the application process for certification. If the candidate was previously exempted from Inspector Certification Examination for his/her In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector certification (Pressure Vessels and Pressure Piping), he/she will have to successfully challenge the Inspector Certification Examination. If the candidate previously passed the Inspector Certification Examination, he/she will not be required to re-write the examination for the certification.

A person who holds both Certificates of Competency will, upon expiry of either certificate, be able to renew only the one Certificate for the In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector. The Certificate of Competency for the In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector (Pressure Vessels and Pressure Piping) will be superseded by the In-Service Pressure Equipment Inspector Certificate of Competency.
