  • You may complete our Evaluator Reauthorization Computer-Based Training (CBT) course, which is accessible 24/7 via VeriSourceTM, our web-based compliance management software. To access the Evaluator Reauthorization CBT course, log-in to VeriSource using your evaluator user name/password, look under the Internal Evaluators menu, and select Evaluator Reauthorization. After you complete the training modules you will take a final exam (50 questions) and must score 100% in order to be reauthorized.
Can I transfer my evaluator authorization to another company?

Yes. Your new company must have an account with Veriforce (if your new company needs to sign up with Veriforce, go here). Your new company’s VeriSource admin must initiate the evaluator transfer request. To do so, he/she will log in to VeriSource  using their admin user name/password, look under the Administrative menu, and select and complete the Evaluator Transfer Form.

Where can I find the covered task list for a pipeline operator that is a Veriforce client?

Operator-specific covered task lists are accessible in VeriSource, our web-based compliance management software.

If you do not have access to VeriSource, you will need to complete our online Contractor Signup Form here to establish an account with Veriforce and get VeriSource login credentials for your company .

What is the Common Covered Task (CCT) list?

In 2003, Veriforce assembled a committee of gas and liquid pipeline operators to create a list of pipeline industry tasks common among them, which is known as the Common Covered Task (CCT) list. This list, and its supporting evaluation criteria, make managing OQ plans simpler for participating operators and contractors. The CCT list is kept current as regulations evolve and incorporated by reference industry standards change, so it is always up-to-date. Each pipeline operator that is a Veriforce client can choose to use the CCT list, their own unique covered task list, or a hybrid of the two to suit their OQ program’s specific needs.

How do I find a Veriforce-authorized evaluator to qualify my employees?

You may either send someone in your organization through the Veriforce evaluator authorization process, or hire a third-party evaluator. To find a list of third-party evaluators, log-in to VeriSource , our web-based compliance management software. Once logged-in, look under the OQ menu and select Third-Party Evaluators.
