Spots Available for July 31 Course at Diamond Offshore Training Center
Offshore Technical Compliance’s Offshore Drilling Compliance Course is all about making essential regulatory compliance information accessible to those in the industry; and later this month, the venue will be even more accessible for those near the Houston energy corridor.
OTC is hosting a special Houston presentation of its IADC-accredited Offshore Drilling Regulatory Drilling Compliance Course on July 31-August 4 at Diamond Offshore Training Center, located at 15415 Katy Freeway, Suite 100. The five-day (35-hour) course runs for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a special 25 percent discounted rate.
This course, intended for all drilling personnel with regulatory compliance responsibilities including drilling engineers and superintendents, company men, HSE managers, OIM’s, rig managers, tool pushers, subsea engineers, drillers and maintenance staff, provides participants with knowledge and understanding of applicable offshore drilling regulatory compliance requirements, as well as inspection methodology and skills.
“This course was designed to make the content accessible and easily applied in attendees’ day-to-day jobs for multiple levels of participants,” said Mike Bethea, CEO of OTC. “Through interactive presentations, participant feedback and instructor-led real-world scenarios, course attendees can easily digest and therefore use what they learn as soon as they return to work.”
This course offers real-world examples – including photos from offshore job sites – to demonstrate inspection findings; and course participants are even challenged to try to identify issues of non-compliance to test their knowledge.
Course objectives include:
- Developing a fundamental knowledge and understanding of offshore drilling regulatory requirements and inspection methodology and skills;
- Identifying the primary governmental agencies and their associated regulations pertaining to offshore drilling operations;
- Understanding the various BSEE regulations/PINC’s, as identified by activity or topic;
- Being able to locate, interpret and apply regulatory requirements, as identified by the Code of Federal regulations or similar regulatory documents;
- Demonstrating an understanding of the details necessary to prove compliance with a rule or regulation;
- Identifying systems having frequency based testing requirements; and
- Other essential offshore regulatory issues.
Offering this course in Houston, a major energy sector hub, is another step in ensuring that OTC is arming oil and gas personnel with the regulatory compliance information they need, Bethea said.
“We know we have a great course that offers a wealth of essential information that both participants and their companies can immediately reap benefits from; now we are adding to the convenience by helping them save on travel time, too.”
