Performance and value from skills competency assessment and development through simulation technology

Drilling Systems competency training programmesMoving from Assumed competence to Verified competence 

Drilling Systems' business combines the power of simulation with ongoing assessment and training of operations crew to ensure the highest levels of competency across the platform environment.

Many simulators are deployed purely for gaining the basic levels of accreditation to obtain certification to work within the industry. However Drilling Systems believes that when correctly deployed within rig operations infrastructure, simulation can be used not just to train but to continually assess and develop skills competencies which would previously have been 'assumed' through experience or accreditation.

By analysing and verifying competency and where necessary developing training programmes to improve processes, procedures and skills, skills-fade and 'rustiness' can be reduced hugely improving safety and efficiency on the rig and ultimately leading to significantly higher performance delivery across operations.

Human factors is the single biggest challenge to the industry currently and incorporating both technical and non-technical training via simulation in a safe environment, means that theory can be put into practice and 'experienced' within the simulator adding real value to previous training based on theory.    

Combined with our market leading simulator technology at the core of what we do, Drilling Systems can deliver industry leading competency programmes from our IAS team to help maximise gains in safety and performance within your working crews.
