Fundamentals of Petroleum Certificate Program


A convenient format that reinforces learning and tests knowledge. This online tool provides an easy, immediate way to ensure understanding of the many key concepts presented in the Fundamentals of Petroleum, 5th edition text. Includes a 500-question test, plus an alternate test set of 500 questions as a retest. Questions address each of the five parts of the book presented in multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank formats with illustrations accompanying some questions to assist learning. Satisfactory completion earns each participant 4 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs), and a Certificate of Completion.

Important Note: Hiring and promotions are a matter of judgment, and any written test can only be a small part of the candidate evaluation process. PETEX does not recommend that a PETEX assessment be used as the only criterion to evaluate a person’s knowledge or skills.
