**This is a previously recorded virtual training, now provided in on-demand format with PDHs available.**

In 1999, PHMSA issued the final Operator Qualification (OQ) rule enhancing training requirements for pipeline operators. The rule, which was adopted into the Code of Federal Regulations under Subpart N in 49 CFR Part 192 and Subpart G in 49 CFR Part 195, requires pipeline operators to document that certain employees have been adequately trained to recognize and react to abnormal operating conditions (AOCs) that may occur while performing specific tasks. Specific tasks include recognizing pipeline AOCs such as weld, material, cracking, corrosion that require training and certification for assessment of these defects. This on-demand course offers introductory training in the recognition of these defects and in-depth assessment of corrosion defects. Upon successful completion of the learning assessment, a PDH certificate will be issued.   

To receive Level 1 certification in the assessment (RSTRENG) of corrosion defects to meet your OQ requirements, you will need to register for a Live-Virtual or In-Person RSTRENG and Defect Assessment training. Engineers, Technicians and Managers who attend the live-virtual or in-person training and have demonstrated a sufficient understanding in the use of the RSTRENG calculations as required in 192 and 195 to assess corrosion by both written and a practical examination will receive their certification and education units.
