Pipeline Engineer Training – 2

Further to the previous post on this topic, Chris Harvey has provided an outline of the next phase of this project:

  • Familiarising the membership with the Guide and the Competency Standards – largely through presentations
  • Setting up a mechanism for supporting members in their use of the documents – through a help desk and individual company support as requested
  • Working with industry and training providers to identify priorities for developing courses to assist in accelerating the rate at which engineers are trained
  • Assisting members identify existing courses
  • Developing a policy and strategy for APIA for Pipeline Engineer Training
  • Working with Engineers Australia to coordinate the APIA Pipeline Engineer Training with formal recognition of pipeline engineers
  • Coordinating with the Energy Pipelines CRC, especially with respect to the CRC’s education program
  • Finalising agreement with SAI Global for publishing the AS 2885.1 Issues Papers

That’s quite a lot.  The Pipeline Engineer Training project is a deceptively large undertaking, even without the inclusion of any actual training programs by APIA.  The scope is partly indicated by the list above, and partly by the sheer number of distinct competencies identified in the first phase of the project – about 220 (of which more than half remain to be written in a future phase of this work).

You may or may not be excited about pipeline engineer training but this APIA project is something that all engineers in the industry should be aware of, whether you are early in your career or a senior person managing a team.
