  • Incorporation of client’s safety and environmental compliance requirements

  • Development of training process and facilities convenient to production areas

  • A phased training approach that allows novices to learn and practice new skills in a step-by-step process: basic well orientation and understanding of the surface equipment operation (i.e., start up and shut down procedures), well optimization procedures, and in surface equipment instrumentation training and repair

  • Training by certified equipment instrumentation personnel, scheduled to allow for trainees production schedules, including hands on training sessions
