Seagull Oil & Gas has launched the most cost efficient and comprehensive e-learning training package in the industry for offshore personnel working in explosive atmospheres.
Building on International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards, the new series covers basic understanding, installation in Ex-areas, Exi installation, cable entry, IP degree, and inspection and maintenance.
“We believe today’s market requires more cost efficient and better Ex and El safety training” says Morten Aasen, Managing Director, Seagull Oil & Gas. “Together with leading subject experts we have developed a series of new courses covering these safety-critical subjects. The e-learning will work as individual self-study courses but also offered as part of blended learning.”
The content of the courses includes e-learning modules that normally require 2 days of classroom study covering theory. ExTek, the only certified CompEx centre in Norway, will offer the self-study course components so that an entire five-day 01-04 CompEx course can be completed with only three days spent in the classroom.
“Blended learning and self-study will be a greater part of future training, both to increase quality and reduce the cost of training,” says Aasen. “Ex and El safety are important subjects for our clients and we will continue to develop innovative and cost efficient solutions to meet their demands.”
