Course Maintenance Now Complete

June 24, 2018

Course Maintenance is now complete on the following courses:

  • ASME-0761 e-TNG Joining of Plastic Pipe – Butt Heat Fusion: Hydraulic Machine
  • ASME-0761 KNT Joining of Plastic Pipe – Butt Heat Fusion: Hydraulic Machine
  • ASME-0771 e-TNG Joining of Plastic Pipe – Sidewall Heat Fusion
  • ASME-0771 KNT Joining of Plastic Pipe – Sidewall Heat Fusion
  • ASME-0781 e-TNG Joining of Plastic Pipe – Electrofusion
  • ASME-0781 KNT Joining of Plastic Pipe – Electrofusion
  • ASME-1011 e-TNG Coating Application and Repair – Wrapped
  • ASME-1011 KNT Coating Application and Repair – Wrapped
  • ASME-1061 e-TNG Composite Sleeves
  • ASME-1061 KNT Composite Sleeves
  • ASME-1251 e-TNG Hazardous Liquid Leak Investigation
  • ASME-1251 KNT Hazardous Liquid Leak Investigation

As previously communicated, these courses are using the refreshed MEA brand and new user interface.

In addition, the updated courses will also have the new knowledge test functionality. Course users will only be allowed to open a KNT course once. If a course session is ended for any reason prior to receiving a passed or failed score, the status will change to “In Progress” and the EnergyU Administrator will be required to reset the course. Users will not be able to launch an “In Progress” knowledge test until the course is reset.

Functionality of the training (TNG) courses will remain the same — users will be allowed multiple sessions to complete, and users will be able to review learning content of completed courses.

Remember… After a course has undergone maintenance, it is important that users verify a status of “Not started” to ensure proper recording of a new score.

Course Maintenance scheduled for June 30-July 2, 2018

June 22, 2018

Both the training and knowledge test courses for the 13 tasks listed below are scheduled to undergo maintenance (26 courses total). The courses will be offline beginning Saturday morning (June 30) at 7:00 a.m. CST. We expect maintenance to be completed by Monday morning (July 2) at 10:00 a.m. CST. A blog post will go out when maintenance is complete.

Both the TNG and KNT for each covered task will be updated.

  • ASME-0041 Installation and Maintenance of Mechanical Electrical Connections
  • ASME-0161 Visual Inspection for Internal Corrosion
  • ASME-0191 Measure Atmospheric Corrosion
  • ASME-0331 Valve – Visual Inspection and Partial Maintenance
  • ASME-0591 Leak Test at Operating Pressure
  • ASME-0681 Joining of Plastic Pipe – Stab Fittings
  • ASME-0751 Joining of Plastic Pipe – Butt Heat Fusion: Manual
  • ASME-0941 Install Tracer Wire
  • ASME-1281 Mobile Gas Leakage Survey – Optical Methane
  • ASME-1291 Locate Underground Pipelines
  • ASME-1301 Install and Maintain Pipeline Markers
  • ASME-1311 Inspect Pipeline Surface Conditions—Patrol Right-of-Way or Easement
  • ASME-1331 Damage Prevention Inspection During Third Party Excavation or Encroachment Activities as Determined Necessary by Operator

These courses are using the refreshed MEA brand and new user interface. In addition, these updated courses will also have the new knowledge test functionality. If a course session is ended for any reason prior to receiving a passed or failed score, the status will change to “In Progress” and the EnergyU Administrator will be required to reset the course. A trend toward tighter regulations and a desire to have more oversight of online knowledge tests has prompted this recommendation by the MEA Technical Training Committee.

Remember… After a course has undergone maintenance, it is important that users verify a status of “Not started” to ensure proper recording of a new score.
