This course is designed primarily for Management and Engineering personnel.  The format is informal, but busy, and there’s a lot to do in a week. Most of the course is held in the Lab or the Digs, with the emphasis being on helping people who receive data from a Pipeline Integrity Professional understand how that data was gathered.  It’s fun, informative, and helps all of us in the industry improve our total understanding of the tasks required.  Students are welcome to bring their own data reporting systems along, or use the provided Pipeline Integrity software.
