Comparing "transportation industries" and "minimum standards".

"qualifying for being" is awkward.

(B) Unlike other transportation industries that have minimum standards set by government or industry, there are none for qualifying to be

Comparing "transportation industries (phrase) and "there are none for qualifying" (clause).

Use of "there" seems incorrect.

(C) Although the government or industry usually sets minimum standards for transportation industries, no such one has been set for qualifying as to being

"no such one has been set for qualifying as to being" is wrong. "One" is a singular pronoun here and it must be referring to "minimum standards" which is plural.
Also, "as to being" is incorrect.

(D) Although the government or industry usually sets minimum standards for transportation industries, no such standard has been set for qualifying to be

Correct.

(E) Although there are usually minimum standards set by government or industry for transportation industries, there is none for qualifying and being

Use of "There" is wrong.
Use of "being" is wrong.
SV error between "minimum standards" (plural) and there "IS" (singular)

Here the comparison is between transportation industries and standards. ELIMINATED
Quote:
(C) Although the government or industry usually sets minimum standards for transportation industries, no such one has been set for qualifying as to being

Qualifying as to being is non-sensical to say. ELIMINATED
Quote:
(D) Although the government or industry usually sets minimum standards for transportation industries, no such standard has been set for qualifying to be

This should be the correct one. CORRECT
Quote:
(E) Although there are usually minimum standards set by government or industry for transportation industries, there is none for qualifying and being

Qualifying and being are saying that no standards are qualifying and being an engineer. Distorts meaning. ELIMINATED
