People Factor Consultants Ltd (PFC) has added an industry-first training programme to its extensive portfolio.
The course, aimed at drilling rig electricians, has been developed in conjunction with a leading offshore drilling services provider and recognises that until now, industry-standard training for the role has not existed. Whilst drilling rig electricians will have typically developed the necessary knowledge and skills through in-house training, this new four-day course aims to standardise and refresh their capabilities, further enhancing the skills and competence of personnel.
Explaining the industry relevance of the new course, PFC technical director, Brian Crichton said: “Without regular updates to skills learned either from colleagues or from previous training, there is a very real risk of complacency when it comes to carrying out electrical activities in the workplace. The Drilling Rig Electricians’ course places a strong emphasis upon the non-technical knowledge and skills required to mitigate that risk.”
