  • Operator Qualification Task Specific Training: Employees and contractors, whether they are rookies or veterans, will learn the safety considerations of specific tasks, duties, and positions.
  • Safety Training: All operators, contractors, and employees will learn how to satisfy requirements set up by OSHA.

We provide everything you need for each of these training options, including instructors, documentation, and even our own training center if you need it. Basic training programs are conducted inside a classroom setting. The Task Specific Training combines classroom and field training for a truly hands-on learning experience. Safety training is provided for employees and contractors in the field.

Operator Qualification Certification

Certification is just as important, if not more important, as training. A certified pipeline is one that complies with safety standards. It’s also a pipeline that stays in business as a result. For more than 10 years, we have helped oil and gas pipelines like yours achieve and maintain operator qualification certification.
