Pipeline Operation Qualification Training
International Safety Training Council, in conjunction with OverNite Software, Inc., has the solution for compliance with the Department of Transportation’s Operator Qualification Rule.
Members of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC), with the capability of delivering Internet-based training, are already delivering over 70 modules that comply with the covered task list mandated by the DOT. ISTC has the solution for pipeline operators – transmission, distribution, and liquids – and their contractors.
All ARSC safety councils are evaluation centers that ensure quality control and quality assurance for the training and evaluation of contract employees. As such, these centers provide quality, verifiable and audited training and testing on demand. By utilizing ISTC for this training, you can avoid redundancies in training and expenditures for training, as ARSC participants have established reciprocity for qualifying courses.
The Pipeline Operator Qualification training is interactive and allows trainees to learn at their own pace. Every module has been designed to deliver all of the learning objectives and then evaluate the proficiency of the trainee. Upon successful completion of various modules, trainees will receive a badge with photo ID and completed courses. A Certificate of Completion can be provided upon request. As an added bonus, member organizations can run their own training reports online at no additional cost!
Each employer is responsible for determining the required training modules for their employees based on the tasks they will be performing.
