Anyone may challenge a pipeline industry code qualification examination to demonstrate their knowledge and comprehension of the regulatory and code requirements for their position. Certification of an applicant’s code qualification is a critical component for companies in demonstrating competency for the roles and responsibilities they wish to assign. The qualifications issued under this program do not infer any level of training or experience and companies are reminded they have responsibility within their Competency Management Systems to determine and assess the training, experience and qualifications that may be required, in addition to a CPAC code certificate, for assigning or contracting positions, work or tasks.

NASA Corp. administers exams on behalf of the Canadian Pipeliner Accreditation Council (CPAC). As part of our training program the option to write exams is available with registration for your training course. Those individuals who have obtained alternate training, or who feel that their industry experience is sufficient may challenge the examinations.

If you require training the CPAC qualification exam can be written at the conclusion of your course. The examination fee includes the exam, issuance formal Certificate of Qualification and registration on the national database.
