Training Aids Overview

Publications and Training Aids

Since 1944, PETEX has been producing publications to provide training for field-level personnel. Most of the publications are written so that even the newest worker can grasp the material being presented. Training manuals are researched and written under the guidance of industry advisory committees and are frequently published in cooperation with the relevant industry association. Cooperating with PETEX in the development of its publications are the American Petroleum Institute, the Association of Desk and Derrick Clubs, the Association of Energy Service Companies, the Gas Processors Association, the International Association of Drilling Contractors, the Pipe Line Contractors Association, and others.


All videos are offered in DVD format. Programs include original video productions, video transfers of most slide-tape programs, and video transfers of all 16-mm films.
