Development of employees’ skills
The company management puts significant emphasis on the development of professional qualities of the personnel. This goals’ achieving is supported by continuous training of employees, by means of internal training schemes, as well as by the participation of our employees in top training courses and in postgraduate education system.
Professional qualification is also being increased by participation of our employees in a number of conferences, not only as participants but also as speakers. Our staff regularly participates in international colloquia on the reliability of pipelines, organized annually by the Czech Gas Association. Furthermore, our specialists gave lectures at major events organized by the German EITEP GmbH Hannover, British Clarion Technical Conferences, Iranian Middle East Pipeline, American Tiratsoo Technical, World Simone Congress, company Gas Ltd. and the Association of Pipeline Producers (ASPP).
In 2012–2014, CEPS took part in the project The maintenance and professional growth of employees, whose companies are the ASPP’s members, financed by the European Social Fund and the Czech State Budget. CEPS has used this project not only to complement the conventional skills of its employees, but also it mainly focused on the broadening of certified high-skilled expertise, the acquisition of which is otherwise financially extremely demanding. In this project many our employees gained international qualification according to EN 9712 for the area of defect detecting methods ranging from Visual Testing (VT), Magnetic Testing (MT) to Penetration Testing (PT) and Radiogram Testing of Welds (RTW).
