Clyde Training Solutions (CTS) has opened a new International Well Control Forum-accredited drilling and well control training centre in Glasgow. And a second is due to follow in Aberdeen in the coming weeks.
It has appointed Jamie McHattie as senior technical instructor to head up the new facilities, which will provide IWCF Drilling and Well Control Level 2 and IWCF Drilling and Well Control Levels 3 and 4 both in-person and virtually. The Clydebank facility is already receiving bookings.
Launched in 2016, CTS has become the Central Belt’s largest provider of marine, offshore and renewables safety training. The new training infrastructure includes drilling and well control computer simulators provided by Houston-based Endeavor Technologies, with CTS becoming the first company in the UK to use globally-renowned equipment.
CTS General Manager Kris McDonald said: “Ensuring workers are competent beyond compliance is key to everything we do. Bringing Jamie on board is an indication of the quality of training we are able to offer delegates to help prepare them for working offshore, and this investment is an indication of our intention to grow further.”
