Pipeline Assessments

Pipeliner Training and Assessment Program (PTAP):
Operator Qualification for Liquid & Gas Pipelines

NCCER has developed the PTAP in cooperation with API. PTAP consists of pipeline curriculum and pipeline skill assessments to qualify pipeline personnel under the Department of Transportation's regulation for Pipeline Operator Qualification. The pipeline assessments are tied directly to NCCER's standardized pipeline curriculum and will determine qualification on selected covered tasks as identified by API and the industry.

In order for a participant to PASS any Pipeline Assessment, the student must reach the cut score (stated in the specifications below) in EACH area of the assessment. If the student does not reach the cut score in each area, the student will not PASS this assessment per NCCER and will receive a TRAINING RECOMMENDED score.
