About Us

Get to know the team behind Atlas API Training

Atlas Trainingis an online exam prep and training company focused on serving student customers in the industrial industries.  We specialize on creating courses that will help you prepare, train and study for your certification exams and pass them the first time around.  We recognize that the cost of training in classroom settings can be very expensive, and our goal is to provide to you a better training experience than you can get in a classroom setting.  We provide a training experience that you can use over and over again until you are sure you know the material well enough to pass your exam the first time.  This saves you time and money in the long run.  With today's costs of travel expenses to a testing center, meals, hotel stay and other added expenses along with the actual cost of the exam can be daunting, so passing the exam the first time to avoid repeating those costs all over again is of paramount importance and we get that.  That is why we pour so much time and effort into each and every course we develop.  We feel that we are the industry leaders in industrial training and look forward to having you are our next student.

Our Story

In 2014, after 65 years of combined engineering experience in the petro-chemical and power industries, Hannon McLeod and Oran Lewis recognized how important providing a more convenient way to train and acquire industry certifications and advanced education qualifications in these industries – This led to the development of Atlas API Training LLC. Atlas turned the tables on the industry standard and ended the expensive tedium of travelling to specific locations to take the courses with the development of a convenient online format that saves time and money. Over the past two years Atlas has received multiple request to expand their offering of advanced API certifications and is now developing additional industry specific training courses that will soon be available.

Atlas API Training was started with quality, value, and convenience in mind. Our online training courses are designed to give the API students the best opportunity to pass the certification exam. The goal is to provide that opportunity in the most convenient manner possible. All course courses are frequently updated to reflect the most current industry specific changes and testing parameters.
