RIG EXCELLENCE TRAINING

BETTER TRAINING YIELDS BETTER OCCUPATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RISK MANAGEMENT

VIRTUAL AND HANDS-ON TRAINING

Working safely offshore and onshore requires knowledge and experience in both technology and hands-on practice. This unique quality makes training and managing personnel especially challenging in today’s resource environment.

Offshore Inspection Group provides trainers who have extensive field experience and are also in the forefront of technological advancements. Our coaches connect with younger crew members by discussing technology and tools available.

Our company inspects and evaluates people, processes, and plants to identify where training is required. We further analyze the robustness of training systems for professional development, and provide support for improvements to reduce the occurrence of errors. In collaboration with clients, we respond wherever we are needed: on consultation calls with overseas crew members; walking the rigs with drill site supervisors; or through virtual and hands-on coaching of crew teams.
