Lloyd’s Register (LR), an engineering, technical and business services organization, has signed a global frame agreement with The Well Academy to cover a joint provision of training services.
According to LR, this agreement will provide a mechanism for the duo to continue working together to deliver training solutions to the drilling and well services industry across a global network of training centers.
Ivo Nijhuis, Director of The Well Academy, said: “Together we will serve the industry on a global scale with training courses and development programs that enhance competence and confidence on an individual and organizational level.”
In October 2015, both companies first announced their working collaboration which was subsequently followed up in February 2016 with the delivery of the first combined Well Control Enhanced Renewal training course.
Meindert Sturm, Vice President of Market Development of Lloyd’s Register, said: “This collaboration enables us to provide a wide range of drilling industry courses covering all interactions between People, Systems, and Equipment in a classroom, simulator or workshop based training environment that enhances the candidate’s training experience.”
This global agreement now allows both Lloyd’s Register and The Well Academy to be readily available to new and existing clients in Europe, Middle East, USA and Asia with training centers already established in The Netherlands, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Houston.
LR also said that other training centers, like the ones in Iran and Singapore, are planned with the specific aim of reducing client travel expenditure.
