This online course consists of 8 linked sessions designed to provide a sound overview of Pipeline Integrity Management concepts, principles, and strategies. The course considers pipeline integrity management plans and the links between the various elements of risk assessment and mitigation; determining the current condition of a pipeline; and common repair techniques.

On completion of the course, participants will have a solid understanding of the procedures, strengths, limitations, and applicability of the main issues that comprise a Pipeline Integrity Management Program designed to meet regulatory requirements, including self assessment and continuous improvement.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
