Oilennium Ltd., a leading provider of training programs to the international oil and gas industry, announced the launch of an exciting new range of blended learning systems.
"During the past year demand for our global training programs, which are delivered in the classroom and online, has been incredible," said Kevin Keable, Managing Director of Oilennium. "Because we provide customised programs that are available instantaneously online, they’re cost-effective and efficient."
Why is demand so high? For the past 10 years, the energy industry has been moving steadily toward a full-blown employment crisis, "The Big Crew Change." With every passing year, hundreds of highly skilled and experienced crewmembers and managers retire, taking their knowledge with them. "Keen to harvest their knowledge before it’s lost and build up crews staffed by well-trained employees, companies are investing in training like never before, and that’s where we come in," said Keable.
All training sessions and materials are delivered and developed by seasoned career oil and gas professionals with experience across the full spectrum of industry disciplines, ranging from risk management to drilling engineering, and oilfield maths to compressors. Oilennium harvests their knowledge of the industry to ensure that delegates receive the best in technical and management training.
Interactive e-learning Dramatically Improves Retention
Until the arrival of the internet, global companies struggled to provide standardized training that was effective. On-site classroom training on its own wasn't cost-effective, while handing a new employee a thick training manual was ineffective at best. But technology has changed all that. Oilennium delegates benefit from in-class training that is further reinforced outside of the classroom where they work through the relevant software program on a PC or a mobile device, such as an Iphone. Some of the modules are stand alone with no need for classroom training.
Solid Track Record
During the past four years, 700 people have participated in classroom sessions and 20,000 have access to Oilennium's e-learning programmes. Oilennium provides a broad range of learning programs to several corporate clients, including Weatherford International Ltd. Training sessions for Weatherford employees have been delivered in Mexico, Singapore, Houston, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Dubai. Currently, Oilennium is hard at work developing a new learning system for Weatherford drilling engineers that is scheduled to launch in Asia this summer.
