Pipeline standards and regulations explicitly require pipeline engineers to be both technically “competent in” and “qualified for” all the tasks they perform. As organizations and individuals, we try to ensure we can demonstrate competence in accordance with regulations and best practices.

But how does this work? What do regulations and standards say, for example, about the specific competency requirements for an engineer performing crack assessments in a pipeline? What recommended competency standard can we assess against and work towards satisfying? How can this be independently validated?

ROSEN’s brand-new learning platform, The Competence Club, is the response to the industry’s need for guidance on professional engineering competencies. It is a network that connects you with experts from the pipeline industry by offering

  • Learning
  • Competence Standards
  • Assessment
  • Certification

We are pleased to invite you to a free webinar that introduces The Competence Club by examining a pipeline engineer’s journey to competence and how they and their organization can ensure that it is demonstrable in accordance with standards and regulations.

The webinar will be presented live by Simon Irvine, Learning Manager, on December 14, 2017, at 8 AM and 5 PM GMT (London time).
