Back to school

AAPG, Paradigm team on continuing education. SEG and IHRDC deploy competency management system. Technical Toolboxes’ new API training. Oilennium’s DS-1 online drill string failure simulator.

The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and Paradigm are to jointly develop a continuing education program for AAPG members. The program will leverage Paradigm’s investment in knowledge transfer through programs such as its virtual lectures, online university and instructor-led training. The first component of the program was a session on big data, new knowledge and analytics held during the recent AAPG workshop on deepwater and shelf reservoirs. More from Paradigm.

Not to be outdone, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists has announced a free competency management system for members worldwide, in collaboration with IHRDC. The system helps geophysics professionals assess their current skills, identify new learning opportunities and manage their careers. The system is powered by IHRDC’s CMS Online software and is available at no cost to SEG’s 24,000 members via the website.

Technical Toolboxes has announced the availability of its online preparation courses for API 653, 570, and 510 certification exams. These offer API inspectors exam preparations and tools for creating an industry-approved report for their clients. Oher TT courses are available for API 510, API 570 and API 653 certification exams and further courses are under development.

Petrofac unit Oilennium has developed DS-1 Online, a training tool to educate personnel on the risk of drill string failure. The system was developed by Oilennium for T H Hill Associates, a Bureau Veritas company that created and maintains the DS-1 standards and offers classroom based training worldwide. Users who enroll the course can also access to live-streamed discussions with qualified engineering instructors.
