Course Overview

The design, construction and operation of Canadian pipelines is mandated within specific functional management systems. To ensure that these systems are performing at the highest levels, the CSA Z662 – 15 requires companies to conduct regular internal audits.

Internal audits, for maximum effectiveness, rely on the internal audit team which is comprised of internal staff competent in their and experienced contractors.

This training focuses on the entry and intermediate level skill sets required for competent pipeline professionals to participate in the internal audit process for their organizations. This intermediate level training also provides the prerequisite for those wishing to obtain advanced training in order to become lead auditors for their organizations.

Participants will receive a Course Completion Certificate and CEU credits.
