:: PETEX Perspectives

from Greg McCormack, Director

Greg McCormack

We have heard you loud and clear. PETEX understands that you have many people to be trained quickly and cost-effectively. Your training needs encompass operations personnel, technicians, professionals, and administrative staff, all of whom would benefit from flexible training formats to get the job done. PETEX believes in a blended approach to training. Therefore, we provide a variety of learning formats—instructor-led classes, hands-on training, and self-study applications—to make sure your people are quality trained. Customized onsite training is another vehicle we provide to give companies exactly what they need by building their own standard operating processes into the curriculum.

Our clients have confirmed the importance of self-paced study, and we have undertaken a major initiative in digital training solutions to meet the need. This is evident in our newly introduced e-books and online training modules that run on your learning management systems. PETEX Digital Training Solutions (DTS) Project Manager, Zahid Yoosufani, leads this charge. His many years of experience with IBM equip him with the essential tools needed to help transition PETEX content to digital formats. Today, PETEX offers over forty e-books, three training modules, and an interactive rig module.

That said, we know that a standardized approach is not always appropriate, so we offer our resources to help you develop the type of digital training systems you need. I am excited at the progress we are making in this arena, and I invite you to share your requirements and take part in testing so we can help develop the modules and specialized training you need. If you would like to partner in this process, please feel free to contact our DTS team at petexdts@www.utexas.edu. Whatever path you take, PETEX is there to assist with your immediate and future training needs to meet the challenges afoot. Look forward to a major announcement regarding digital training in our next newsletter.
