Update - March 2020: In response of the current COVID-19 situation, and as a means to limit exposing staff to community transmission, TIC Council Members feels that it is prudent to suspend IFIA petroleum inspector and agricultural superintendent certification examinations until further notice. The validity of current certifications coming due for renewal during this period will also be extended until examinations can be resumed.
Test Question update: As of February 1 2020, all Agricultural superintendent examinations will follow the January 2020 test question set found below replacing the July 2018 version. The training requirements have also been updated.
As of 1 November 2019, all IFIA Certification Programme applications and registrations are to be made on the TIC Council page. The procedure is identical to the IFIA procedure for registering candidates and branches, and therefore, there is no need to re-apply if you already have a Branch Code. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Agricultural Superintendent Certification Programme was introduced in 2014 (formerly under IFIA), and follows the same format as the existing Petroleum Inspector Certification Programme. Examinations in Africa, Asia and Europe, and in Central and South America and the Caribbean will take place on a rolling programme, with examinations being offered in each country every six months. Please follow the link to the examination schedule page to see when examinations will be offered in your region, and also to see when applications must be submitted to TIC Council for approval.
Examinations in the US, US Territories and Canada take place throughout the year, and applications can be submitted at any time.
Candidates must be employed by, or contracted to, an TIC Council member company, or to a company which has completed the required registration process.
Candidates must complete a specified set of training tasks as defined in the Training Requirements List and pass an examination. Successful candidates will receive a certificate to document their achievement. Certificates are valid for a period of five years, following which it is necessary for inspectors to be re-examined.
