Petrotechnics opens new oil and gas training centre in Aberdeen

Petrotechnics training centrePetrotechnics has opened a new state-of-the-art competency and training centre at its Aberdeen head office to meet demand for hazardous-industry training – including oil and gas.

To date, more than 70,000 people have been through Petrotechnics’ training programmes, with more than 4,000 delegates enrolled in the last year alone.

The new centre will offer increased capacity to meet growing demand for a range of courses, including those focusing Petrotechnics’ software platform, Proscient.

The centre’s new classrooms feature state-of-the-art interactive facilities and a broader range of training programmes, from traditional classroom training to “self-paced” and “on-demand” options for online learning. 

Iain Mackay, Executive Vice President, Petrotechnics, said: “We’ve been delivering training for over 25 years and during that time we have experienced a significant shift in industry demands from simple control of work to integrated operational risk and operations management best practices.

“Our investment in this new facility is part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining quality competence practices and addressing complex training needs across hazardous industries,”

Petrotechnics’ team of 26 veteran trainers and coaches has a combined industry experience of 460 years. They have supported over 48 major projects with courses delivered in 24 countries on every continent.
