APGA’s competency system and the competency standards have been developed for the use of APGA members. As explained on the website the competency system can be used in many ways in training and developing pipeline engineering capabilities.
Members are encouraged to use the competency system. However, it should be noted that all elements of the competency system, including the surrounding descriptive and explanatory material, are copyright to APGA to protect the investment that APGA’s members have made in their development.
