Federal Gas Pipeline Requirements
As of October 29, 2002 the federal government requires any individual who installs, replaces, or repairs service lines and meter settings must be Operator Qualified in accordance with Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Department of Transportation Part 192, Subpart N. Operator Qualification is a federally mandated program of the Department of Transportation's Office of Pipeline Safety. It requires pipeline operators to develop and maintain a written qualification program for individuals performing covered tasks on pipeline facilities. The intent of this qualification is to ensure a qualified workforce and to reduce the probability and consequence of incidents caused by human error.

UTI offers development of OQ written programs and training courses to meet these federally mandated training requirements as well as providing gas operations related training programs to meet specific industry requirements. UTI has led the development effort for OQ training programs for meeting the needs of companies in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and West Virginia areas.
