Following its recent acquisition of eLearning specialist Oilennium Ltd, Petrofac Training Services (PTS) has announced the launch of ‘Introduction to Oil & Gas,’ a new eLearning course.
Developed by Oilennium, the course offers an engaging, interactive overview of the oil and gas industry that can be used to enhance a trainee’s in-class training experience, and made available to thousands of employees around the world.
The course, which can be accessed any time online, offers a concise summary of how the industry works, from exploration and production upstream to processing and transmission downstream. It is fully interactive and features full voiceover guidance and colourful 3D animations technology throughout. When a module is successfully completed, a certificate is issued to reward the user’s efforts, fuelling the learning process. Upon completing the 12-module course, the user will have a good understanding of how hydrocarbon fields are found and developed, industry terminology, and technical know-how.
Effective, quality training
At a time when unemployment is rising and major businesses are closing, the oil and gas industry continues to buck the trend. Not only is it thriving, the industry is actively recruiting and searching for ways to effectively train new employees, while simultaneously reducing training costs. According to Oilennium, this is where eLearning courses like “Introduction to Oil & Gas” come in.
The accessibility offered by eLearning addresses another common challenge faced by training managers in the oil and gas industry: how to train technical staff working on rotation or offshore. Traditional classroom training demands that they be physically present. However, eLearning courses can be accessed from any device with internet access, saving thousands in employee expenses.
Special introductory offers
To mark the launch of ‘Introduction to Oil & Gas,’ PTS is offering the course at a reduced rate, either as a standalone or bundled with its best-selling training courses ‘Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training’ (BOSIET), Universal BOSIET and ‘Minimum Industry Safety Training’ (MIST). These courses provide safety and emergency training for the oil and gas industry, and are essential for those about to begin working offshore or are pursuing a career in this specialist environment.
