The start of this week signalled the publication and launch of the second module of EPSCO's new computer based training (CBT) covering Potable Water Management & Legionella Awareness on Vessels and Offshore Installations.
The module provides vessel specific and highly relevant coverage, using modern animated e-learning graphics matching theory with practical operations on vessels. It is designed to deliver awareness level content for personnel of all positions, but with the depth of enhanced material far exceeding the generic offerings in the marketplace.
The package of modules has been universally welcomed by technical authorities from oil & gas operators, with excellent reviews from all those who have sampled so far. As well as offering a more robust and detailed option for awareness level training, the coverage has also been designed to act as an introductory module for those personnel and responsible persons requiring more in-depth coverage.
Follow-on modules in the suite, including a more detailed module on Quality Standards and Compliance is due for release in the coming weeks.
Potable Water is consistently identified as an area where issues frequently cause significant but avoidable disruption to vessel operations. With further more technical modules to be published soon, the suite as a whole promises to offer a real opportunity to help improve competence of vessel personnel with regard potable water, while also cutting back on the need for classroom training onshore.
The training is currently hosted via Oilennium on their web-based learning management system (LMS).
