Skills Training & Competence Assessment Centre Capability
WAZP Group consultants have led the design, development, build, installation and commissioning of numerous Oil and Gas Skills Training Centres over the last 20 years.
Our activities have included;
- Concept development
- Curriculum design aligned to competence assurance system
- Facility design
- Organisational design, including nationalization
- Facility layouts - Classrooms, workshops, process equipment, process training rigs, toilets/washing facilities, traffic flows, human flows, landscaping
- Installation of Process Plant and Equipment
- Commissioning of Training Centre Plant, Equipment and Facilities
- Centre Policies, Procedures, Quality Systems developed and installation
- Opening and Start-Up - Student Enrolment, Inductions, Scheduling, etc...,
Our training and assessment centres typically include classrooms equipped with sectioned equipment samples and models together with skill development workshops equipped with industrial equipment. Learning is thus achieved through practical application or ‘doing’ rather than purely from isolated theory instruction. HSSE including Behavioural Safety is a critical element in all training activities.
Training and assessment process rigs are incorporated into facilities to ensure exposure to; Process Plant Area (Zone 2 Area classification), Centralised Control Rooms complete with DCS/ marshalling cabinets, electrical MCC, instrumentation (SMART transmitters, control valves, pressure switches, level switches), electrical equipment, motors, pumps, interconnecting piping, vessels, isolation valves, utilities and safety signage.
