Global) has established a new and comprehensive Auditor Certification Program,

which is the first to be developed by industry experts.

   "API is committed to safety as a core value, and we are pleased to offer

this new auditor certification program to help improve the safety and

performance of oil and natural gas operations worldwide," said Lisa Salley,

vice president of API Global. "API standards and certifications are the

industry gold standard. The program is designed specifically for and by oil and

natural gas quality management professionals and draws upon API's deep industry

knowledge and expertise."

API's globally-recognized standards. The certification of credentialed auditing

professionals will play a key role in advancing quality programs, efficiency,

and safety within the industry.

education, qualifications, training, and audit logs as part of the application

and pre-qualification process. They must also sit for and pass a 150-question

exam, administered worldwide at Prometric computer testing centers. The first

exams will be offered March 1-15, 2016, and the registration deadline is
