MEA offers a variety of training and technical workshops throughout the year. If you are interested in any of the following training or technical workshops, please see our Events Calendar for appropriate times and locations.
Train the Evaluator
The Train the Evaluator session is tailored to meet the needs of the operators of natural gas pipelines who must comply with the federally mandated operator qualification program. This training provides information on the theory of evaluation, but its strength is in providing useful information and hands-on practice for conducting credible performance evaluations.Learn more
CERCplus Administrator Training
CERCplus is a complete recordkeeping system designed to handle all records of employee qualifications and stay compliant with the Department of Transportation regulations associated with pipeline operator qualifications. In this workshop, participants gain access to behind-the-scenes information ranging from requalification to site structuring, from assigning evaluators, to importing qualifications from external sources.
