Training

Safety and Craft Training

Every employer has to conduct safety training. We’re no different. What sets us apart as a service and engineering company is that we have a wider range of safety classes than a usual company might have. Documenting and keeping up with expiration dates, following guidance and compliance rules and coordinating employees with customers is where using certain programs makes good business sense. We’ve partnered with some of the industry’s finest data bases and training programs to document training and we established our own Department of Labor approved teaching program to be able to teach parts of our curricula not otherwise available to us.

We’ve lowered our exposure, liability and risks tremendously by installing a training and evaluation program and being able to conduct training and sustain the proficiency of our own people.   First, it was the First Apprenticeship of its kind in the United States.   It was also the First in the ADCI.

We have all of our training programs currently on the ISNetworld data base.  ISNetworld has a RAVS (Review and Verification Service) to assure that all of our (58) safety training programs meet the minimum standards, but also a T-RAVS (Training -Review and Verification Service) which monitors our training of each of the program subjects.

We have safety training personnel directly on staff, including an OSHA Instructor for General Industry and Construction.

 

 

We provide certifications to Pipeline OQ standards meeting the requirements of over 240 pipeline operators. Our Master Trainer and Pipeline Core Instructors can provide training on pipeline covered tasks by using the Contren Learning Series. We conduct Assessments and Performance Verifications to NCCER standards.

Evaluations are conducted by a Veriforce approved Evaluator. Covered tasks are evaluated for Veriforce pipeline operators. All evaluations are fee-based and conducted at your location or in a field setting.
DOT Drug & Alcohol Training Programs
We have Federal DOT approved training programs compliant with 49 CFR Parts 199 and 40. We have awareness programs for the general employees and our subcontractors and Supervisors Programs for management employees, first line supervisors, and foremen.

▫ Program National Databases
Our collection database for all OQ information ( other than Veriforce) is stored and maintained on the WWW.IsNetworld.com site and it is accessible to pipeline operators nationwide. We have insurance data, Safety, Safe Practices statistics, OSHA 300 Logs and information, personnel statistics, personal qualifications on all personnel, company information and other very valuable data on this vast database.

The HSE safety programs for the company are submitted and audited by National Compliance Management Service NCMS, which verifies our compliance to OSHA and other agencies. This compliance verification is extensive and the only acceptable score is 100% compliance. N

Commercial Diving Company Training & Compliance Programs

We can conduct comprehensive training to commercial diving companies or power utility companies which have a need to understand more about the OSHA and US Coast Guard regulations for commercial diving.  We can also incorporate the EM385-1-1 of the Corps of Engineers and train participants to conduct safe diving operations.  This proven successful program has prepared contractors and clients to deal with the federal regulations for commercial diving and to understand the roles and risks involved in hosting diving operations.
