Operator Qualification (OQ) Program

An operator qualification (OQ) program defines all training tasks that are required for gas utility system operators. This ensures that the operators can safely and properly operate the system.

IAMU developed a model natural gas operator qualification program for Iowa. IAMU also administers the OQ Program for participating Iowa gas utilities.

IAMU OQ Program National Leader

A national industry-government small operator task force reviewed several model plans and concluded that the model plan developed by IAMU provides an excellent model that small operators can use as a model for their OQ compliance programs. IAMU’s plan is used as a model for the “Guidance Manual for Operators of Small Natural Gas Systems” available from the Transportation Safety Institute.  Also available is the Small Natural Gas Operators Qualification Guide.
