Construction Inspector Training

For new or existing pipeline inspectors


MEA Energy Association (MEA) has been closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as well as the impact on the companies we serve. Your wellbeing and the safety of your communities are paramount to us. For that reason, we have cancelled the Construction Inspector Training scheduled for March 16-18 in Chicago. We truly value your support and commitment to MEA and our in-person learning events. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We plan to reschedule this event for fall 2020 in Chicago, IL. We will publish more information as we finalize details.
