Sessions are available on-demand and students can search through a video to find any word spoken or shown on-screen. Recordings are available to learning management system and can be shared with third parties for accurate, human reviewed closed captioning.

Shell has signed a five-year subscription to GSE Systems’ EnVision cloud-based learning simulator in a $1.65 million deal. Shell has been using EnVision simulations and tutorials at its refining operations since 2005. The new deal sees EnVision delivered from the cloud, providing on-demand access to 60 generic process simulation models, 30 tutorials in five different languages and ad hoc remote training.

Honeywell’s Automation College now offers a training needs assessment service to identify gaps between a corporation’s automation system capabilities and its workforce’s skills. The TNA provides a comprehensive training plan delivered through secure, cloud-based access to the Experion PKS and PMD training environments. A PMD ‘driving license’ certifies trainees’ competency.

IOGP Report 476 (now in its third edition) provides recommendations for enhancements to well control training, examination and certification. The report covers onshore and offshore well control operations worldwide. Coverage spans well design, drilling and completion, work-over and P&A. Version 3 adds a training levels guidance chart, also available as a standalone item from the IOGP Bookstore.

Energy e-learning company Norwell EDGE has released Virtual EDGE 3D, an immersive scenario game that puts oil and gas worker’s skills to the test.
