Much movement on the e-learning front this month. The V10.0 release of Petrofac training services’ (PTS) training and competence management software, SkillsXP is a ground up rewrite providing faster operation and improved functionality. The solution ensures that ‘human assets’ (i.e. people!) acquire and maintain the appropriate skill sets. SkillsXP integrates online services such as Google and LinkedIn and embeds the Oilennium e-learning solution acquired by Petrofac last year (OITJ Dec 12).
PTS’ Oilennium unit has launched ‘ConTrainer,’ stand-alone eLearning modules for use offshore and at remote locations without internet access. Norway-based Dolphin Geophysical has been using ConTrainer since last September for HSE training onboard its seismic fleet.
Paris-headquartered Spie oil & gas services has signed an agreement with Petroskills to ‘enhance its worldwide competency development programs.’ SPIE Oil & Gas provides on-the-job training, long term training programs and nationalization plans. Petroskills oversees the Petroskills Alliance, a joint venture with BP, Shell and OGCI to provide competency-based training. The combined offering targets operators, technicians, supervisors, engineers and managers.
