The symposium is designed to promote high-quality continuing education and training standards for one of the most important and dangerous industries in the world. Those attending the symposium will:

  • Identify the reasons for maintaining high CE/T standards.
  • Hear from industry leaders about strategies they have used to raise standards and control costs.
  • Learn how to establish a return on investment from the world's leading expert on training ROI.
  • Learn to deploy research-backed learning strategies for engineers and field workers.  
  • Learn how the Petroleum and Natural Gas Addendum to the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training strengthens quality and addresses other industry requirements.
  • Develop new strategies for raising the bar with existing resources.

Why attend the 2018 Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) CE/T Symposium?

Consider the need for higher education, training and competency standards in PNG:

  • Lack of quality training is the #1 cause for non-productive time (NPT) - billions of dollars of loss per year. Service companies must comply with a mandatory requirement for SEMS (30CFR, 250); API Spec Q1, and API Spec Q2, among others.
  • Lack of quality training is the #2 cause for all incident investigations for upstream services.
  • Lack of quality training is the #1 concern as the industry recovers. 2014 to Present - industry has experienced a 300,000 reduction in its workforce.
  • Improving training ranks among the top two opportunities for improving efficiencies and reducing costs.
  • Training is mandated by operators internationally.
