Improved adult interactive learning design and enhanced audio.
Eagan, MN (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
MEA and EnergyU are proud to announce that over 15 OQ CFR Part 192 courses have brand new robust content. Changes include improved adult interactive learning design and enhanced audio. Within the next year all 192 courses will be updated and new covered tasks will be added. These changes comply with the SCORM format for ease of use on a company’s internal LMS.
The courses are designed to comply with MEA’s Best Practices Program based on PHMSA recommendations. Additional enhancements include more frequent task simulations and interactivity to supplement the learning. New and additional content was added to reinforce the 192 regulations.
The following 192 training (e-TNG) and assessment (KNT) courses are updated:
- 192-0401 Corrosion Monitoring (Atmospheric, External, Internal)
- 192-0402 Coating Maintenance
- 192-0511 Soil Resistivity Testing
- 192-1003 Plastic Pipe – Butt Heat Fusion
- 192-1004 Plastic Pipe: Sidewall Heat Fusion
- 192-1005 Mechanical Joints
- 192-1006 Plastic Pipe: Socket Heat Fusion
- 192-1202 Outside Leakage Investigation
- 192-1203 Inside Leakage Investigation
- 192-1301 Leak and Strength Test: Service Lines, Mains, Transmission Lines
- 192-1405 Underground Clearances
- 192-1410 Cover – Service Lines, Mains, and Transmission Lines
- 192-1411 Inspection

EnergyU courses are accessed via the internet or through a company’s intranet. In addition, course content can be presented in a traditional classroom setting with a laptop and LCD projector for review and to discuss proper procedures. Courses are assigned, delivered, and tracked using either MEA’s or a company’s own learning management system (LMS). Every course offers a pre- and post-course knowledge test and recordkeeping feature. In addition, most courses have one or more Performance Evaluation Forms (PEF). The PEFs are designed for use in simulated hands-on training to determine if an individual has the knowledge and skills to perform a particular task. Courses are AICC and SCORM compliant.
