The role of education and training providers in increasing operator efficiency and productivity

14:30 - 15:30

The prolonged low oil price is driving our industry to achieve greater levels of competency and workforce productivity in order to reduce risk, increase efficiency and cut costs. Companies need to set competency profile expected job roles to ensure that they are achievable and sustainable. The industry needs competency standards that can be adhered to (NVQ/SVQ, OPITO, etc) and a system set-up to manage them.

This session will look at how the private training community has and is adjusting to the changing demands of the oil and gas industry and will assess the role that these companies can play in developing workforce capacity across the Americas.

For example, the reduced size of workforces has prescribed a greater degree of cross-discipline training and the ability to spread competencies. Employing less people with more developed skills sets allows the company to be equally or more efficient with fewer employees. This is a theme we look to explore in this session.
