The pipeline sector is dealing with a multi-faceted challenge in terms of its workforce. A number of factors limit the available workforce in a growing industry that requires more skilled expertise for maintaining an aging infrastructure. To ensure leading edge safety and operational practices, the industry is meeting the challenge in a number of ways — a critical element of this approach is to take a proactive and focused approach to competency development.

As part of its fundamental approach to developing training, PBoK Technical Training Ltd. launched an initiative to review the range of current industry training strategies and put forth a best practice approach for maturing competency development based on these learnings. In particular, the team identified a number of consistent themes, and, upon combining them with both sound educational theory and industry experience, has developed a practical process for effective workforce competency development.
