Course Overview

The construction and inspection of Canadian pipelines require not only specific skill sets but intimate knowledge of the requirements of the CSA Z662 Oil & Gas Pipeline Systems. CSA Z662 is a National Standard of Canada, and is referenced in all federal, provincial and territorial pipeline regulations. Understanding the content of the CSA Z662 is not enough. Understanding the application of the document from the perspective of the Authority Having Jurisdiction is critical to successful and compliant installations.

Building on your experience, qualification and training as a Oil and Gas pipeline construction inspector, this advanced course of study will prepare participants to write either the Canadian or US version of the API 1169 examination. This condensed training provides the necessary understanding of the exam topics and use of the reference materials. All API 1169 clauses will be discussed as well as a review of the General Pipeline Inspectors Manual and its proper application and use in the Canadian exam.


Doors open at 7:40 am with coffee available. Training is from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and includes 2 coffee breaks. Lunch is provided. The course will address the following:
