Pipeline Personnel Certification
The pipeline industry requires pipeline operators to have personnel (including contractors) with appropriate levels of competence in terms of education, training, knowledge and experience. Certification tells employers and your professional peers that you are competent and qualified to perform the required tasks as detailed in competency standards.
Individuals who achieve a certification will have knowledge and understanding of best practices in pipeline integrity, and understand the effects and consequences of their actions, but will still require some supervision from a more qualified individual. This level of certification is defined as ‘foundation’ (F).
