CompEx training modules are said to be recognised as setting the industry standard.

The accreditation makes Dron & Dickson one of a select number of UK centres licensed to validate core competency of employees and contract staff within the offshore and onshore industries.

The company has designed its training in conjunction with Aberdeen-based training specialist imorph.

The CompEx training and assessment will be delivered by Dron & Dickson electrical technical authority Bob Banks.

Banks holds no fewer than six CompEx units himself.

“How we teach and how students learn is revolutionary in the context of CompEx training,” he said.

“Rather than revising theory, our training involves class interaction between the trainer and each other while drawing on their own experiences.

“Ultimately it leaves the class with a real comprehension of what they have learnt – not just a short-term memory.

“With that comes the ability to transfer that understanding to the everyday workplace – critical to a safer oil and gas industry.”
