Course Overview:

Our 3-day Pipeline Integrity Management Training Course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the crucial elements necessary for an effective pipeline integrity management system. The course is interactive and allows participants to fully engage with the material and leave with ideas to take back to their places of work.

Starting with an overview of asset integrity management elements and progressing through the pipeline lifecycle, participants will grasp the interconnectedness of each phase. Modules also cover threat assessment, defect evaluation, and advanced techniques such as smart pig inspections.

The course is delivered in 11 modules some of which involve case studies and examples where delegates are allowed to collaborate and implement the course teachings with guidance from our leading industry experts.
