Operator Qualification Training

We offer several options for training programs for your pipeline. These include PEC Basic Orientation, OQ Basics, OQ Task Specific Training, Safety Training, and Specification Training.

  • PEC Basic Orientation Training prepares contractors for the job before they enter the job site. We provide instructors and documents, so all you do is send the contractors our way. The training is conducted in a classroom setting and can be done at your location or our training center. 
  • Operator Qualification Basics Training prepares new employees for working on your pipeline. It will teach them the basics of Operator Qualification and what to expect from evaluations.
  • Operator Qualification Task Specific Training is applied to specific tasks, duties, and positions. It can serve as a beginner course for new employees or as a refresher course for existing employees. It includes both classroom and hands-on training for coating, line locating, pressure tests, flange and threaded connections, and other areas.
  • Safety Training provides instruction in satisfying OSHA standards. We offer training to your employees in the field for safety during trenching, shoring, hot work, scaffolding, fire protection, and other duties.
  • Specification Training is special training that you require for your pipeline. We will provide this specialized training to your employees and contractors.
