Training Services • Operator Qualification

Operator qualifications are necessary to reduce human error and to protect our employees and the communities they serve. Under the Operator Qualification 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, each pipeline operator is responsible for developing an OQ program, following their written OQ plan, establishing a covered task list applicable to their system, and defining the training and qualification requirements for personnel performing covered tasks on their pipeline facility. Additionally, it is the operator’s responsibility to ensure their contractors and vendors comply with their program requirements.


At Sunrise, we are here to help train your pipeline operators, as this can be a very time consuming and complicated process. Our evaluators are authorized by the following OQ providers:


  • Industrial Training Services (ITS)
  • Energy Worldnet (EWN)
  • Veriforce
