Program seeks to address operator qualification rule for pipeline industry.

NACE International, Houston, TX and the Painters and Allied Trades Labor Management Cooperation Initiative (LMCI) have announced a collaborative program to provide training and qualification for the Operator Qualification (OQ) Rule for the oil and natural gas pipeline industry.

The NACE International Operator Qualification Program addresses 40 covered tasks for corrosion, including 13 coatings-related covered tasks, within the QC Rule. The program is open to International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) members working in the pipeline industry. LMCI is the labor management arm of IUPAT. The training provides the necessary skills to qualify personnel with respect to the federal pipeline regulations in the U.S.

"The LMCI is excited to partner with NACE International to provide coatings training and qualifications that address the OQ rules. Working with the leader in corrosion control and prevention enhances the quality of the training we are able to offer IUPAT members and the industry," says LMCI administrator William McDevitt.
