Pipeliner Career Paths
Within the oil and gas pipeline sector, all duties are required to be executed by competent individuals. Each company is required to establish a Competency Management Program, identifying the roles and responsibilities for the individuals performing these duties which must include the training, experience and qualifications necessary to be deemed Competent for defined tasks. Code and regulatory qualification forms an integral part of this requirement. The Canadian Pipeliner Accreditation Council provides standardized testing of code and regulatory comprehension for individuals assigned various tasks as part of their duties. Each CPAC qualification examination is based on a scope of knowledge identified in the individual examination syllabuses. The Pipeliner Career Path is intended to provide guidance on the typical qualification certificates that are used to support competency qualification for those assigned duties at various levels.
