The Canadian Pipeliner Accreditation Council membership program consists of two categories – Individual Pipeliner Members and Corporate Sustaining Members.
Individual Pipeliner Membership
Individual Pipeliner Membership in the Canadian Pipeliner Accreditation Council is automatic for Pipeliners holding one or more current Certificates of Qualification under the Canadian Pipeline Code Qualification program. Membership is also available to Individual Pipeliners who are preparing for a future code qualification examination.
Membership is maintained by meeting general and qualification specific requirements during the code cycle period. A code cycle period commences on publication of the CSA Z662 and concludes 365 days after publication of a new edition. Code cycles overlap by a period of 1 year to permit members time to meet the code update requirements specific to their certifications and credentials.
The current Code cycle period is the 2019 cycle which runs from July 1, 2019 thru June 30, 2024.
The previous Code cycle period is the 2015 cycle which ran from July 1, 2016 thru June 30, 2020.
***NOTE – Due to the COVID-19 situation, the 2015 code cycle has been extended to October 31, 2020, allowing pipeliners additional time to complete the online update examination and renewal.
