About the Pipeline Engineering Competency System

All elements of the APGA Pipeline Engineering Competency System have been duplicated for APGA Members on the new PECS platform with the APGA Knowledgebase. Please use your X-Info log-on and the link to access on the new platform. It will be accessible from noon AEST on Wednesday 16 September 2020.

If you need an X-Info log-on, please contact us.

The database works best with Google Chrome,

From 1 March 2021, the PECS will no longer be available on this site.

The APGA Pipeline Engineer Competency System creates a framework for understanding competency and a means of assessing and documenting competency for pipeline engineers.

The competency standards at the core of the system have consistent elements and a standard format that enable a quick understanding of requirements in every stream of pipeline engineering. Each competency standard clearly identifies the knowledge, experience and expertise required to achieve competence and outlines the roles and responsibilities that a pipeline engineer will be able to undertake after achieving that competency.

The APGA Pipeline Engineer Competency System was developed by panels of industry experts and then published for wide consultation before being finalised. The system is now the responsibility of the Pipeline Engineering Competency System (PECS) Committee which has developed and implemented a program of review to ensure the system remains current and fit for purpose.

The best place to start exploring the competency standards is via the PECS Database. This is available for members only. Use of the PECS is under licence. See the copyright statement.
