** US issued API 1169 certificates are considered a Level 3 credential meeting the prerequisite requirements for US for Level 4 examinations. US issued API 1169 certificates are considered a Level 2 credential in Canada as they are not based on Canadian codes and regulations and accordingly are not acceptable as prerequisite for Canadian Level 4 designations. Canadian issued API 1169 certificates will clearly identify the jurisdictional code of construction (CSA Z662 or ASME B31 series) and the code edition for which the certificate is issued.
