A Prophetic Understatement

In August of last year, we published a blog article announcing the work we had completed in changing our approach to the frequency and style of our training presentations. At the time it seemed like a big deal and we had a great sense of accomplishment. Turns out it was kids play compared to the changes we have made over the past 6 months in dealing with the pandemic.

By August 1st 2020, our 4 most in-demand programs will be structured for presentation with a dashboard for material downloads and streaming video tutorials providing foundational information for the main lecture on the topic. The main training lectures are now a single day in length and while delivered live, they are structured to allow remote attendance.

While we hope to resume in person lectures in September, we are working to make all our training available for remote attendance on an ongoing basis to assist those who may have travel constraints. Our hope is that all course titles will be available for remote attendance by year’s end.

Summer course dates for August and September are available for registration, and fall training dates, locations (where applicable), and courses titles will be announced in late August.

  • Pipeline Credential Online Exams

Finally!! The Canadian Code Credential Update Exams are Available & Online

By |July 21st, 2020|0 Comments

CPA Council has just announced that the 2019 code update exams are now available online. It has been a long time coming as they have dealt with new computer program migration, membership clarifications to meet international qualification body requirements, and then of all things – a global pandemic. I guess this was a perfect storm from a Personnel Qualification organization, and to be fair we have had our own challenges in being able to offer our courses with a remote attendance option.

The quickie version of the CPA Council changes are as follows:

  • The open letter to Oil and Gas Pipeline Companies requesting extension of 2015 credentials has been updated to October 31, 2020. Read the letter here…
  • Clarification that credential holders are members and that maintaining your membership as current includes the code update exams and re-issue of certificates to the new code edition.
  • A member renewal page that registers you for the online exam
  • Level 1 & 2 code qualification exams will be made available online, however the Level 3 & 4 exams still require writers to attend and write a supervised exam.

For our part, we have added 2 dates (August 7 and September 21) for the Z662 update training to our calendar and will add a third for October shortly. These courses are being run remotely using Zoom, and some basic refresher videos are being added which you can watch.

Registrations for the training are open now and the dashboard is expected by August 1st. If you have not already attended an update through your organization, we will be happy to welcome you to the Zoom Classroom in August or September. Click here for more details.

There will no doubt be more announcements coming over the summer so be sure to stay tuned.
