To support the development of competence in the pipeline industry, we knew there was a need to define a process to develop, benchmark, and quantify the ability of your workforce. That is why the Competence Club collaborated with industry experts and members of the Qualification Panel for the Pipeline Industry (QPPI) to create the Competency Standards Manual for pipeline integrity.

The Competency Standards Manual lists and defines over 40 competencies at awareness, foundation, practitioner, and expert levels. These competencies offer the basis for our training and examination process.
