API-U Q2 Practitioner

API-U Q2 Practitioner Training Course


Created by the American Petroleum Institute (API), the 4-Day API Q2 Practitioner course, teaches the stringent requirements of the API Specification Q2, 1st Edition: Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Service Supply Organizations for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry.

This course encompasses the following:

  • 3-day API Q2 Fundamentals
  • 1-day hands-on practice on key areas of API Q2.

The course is essentially three days of training on the standard, plus one day of training in a few key requirements of API Q2, focusing on three areas:

  • The foundation, background, and importance of API Q2.
  • In depth overview of each clause of the API Specification Q2, interpreting the requirements from API’s perspective, as well as providing the requirements for documentation, implementation and record keeping.
  • Extended hands-on practice on Risk Assessment, Contingency Planning, Management of Change (MOC), and Service Quality Plans.

Using “Think About It’s”, practical activities, and group workshops, this course helps attendees develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the successful implementation of a best in class Quality Management System certified to API Q2.

This course, accredited by IACET, was created by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and is distributed solely by authorized training providers such as Mireaux Management Solutions, under royalty contract agreement with API. Find Mireaux on API’s official website.
