PETEX Knowledge/Skills Analysis Tool (KSAT)

What is KSAT?

A self-assessment tool for enterprise customers that assists employees, supervisors, and mentors with their training programs by documenting knowledge /skill gaps and identifying appropriate training to address the gaps.

A management and HR tool to understand employee training needs and target the right training to build knowledge/skills in the right areas. By doing this, you optimize your training budget by focusing training only where needed. A custom roadmap for each employee lets you measure training progress.

  • This online tool has administrative features that assigns employees to roles and allows them to self-assess or work with a supervisor to review identified gaps in knowledge, skills, and abilities.
  • PETEX works with you to include information on your offered training, such as OJT, so the KSAT can calculate gaps properly.
  • The tool then targets gaps by pre-populating the roadmap with PETEX training offerings and recommendations to address knowledge/skill gaps.
  • The result: a printable customized roadmap for each employee that outlines individual training recommendations.
  • KSAT is an ongoing resource for management and HR to view employee-training progress in contrast to the company’s job requirements.
  • Based on the Knowledge Skills and Abilities (KSAs) outlined by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC)—an established resource for industry job roles and skills.
