Training and competency
We offer a wide range of training and development services, from individual awareness courses to full-service site- or asset-specific training and competence programmes.

Efficient operations require a well-trained workforce. High-performing teams will help your company meet production targets. Wood helps clients mitigate risks and maximise returns, with a confident, competent and safe workforce.

Dedicated professionals, full-service training and development solutions

We design and develop site-specific operations and maintenance training programmes for both brownfield and greenfield projects. Our dedicated team includes project managers, training specialists, engineers, technical writers, technical illustrators, animators, editors, publishers and software developers. As part of a global engineering company, we draw upon our network of technical specialists to support flexible, scalable operations and maintenance training for any industry.

Digital solutions to support training programmes

Virtual environments

Combining leading-edge applications with our 35+ years of training experience, we create immersive, interactive programmes, simulating complex operations. Using 3D modelling, point cloud laser scanning, and three-sixty degree photography we can produce highly interactive, virtual training environments. Combined with the latest instructional techniques, your workforce can develop knowledge and skills in an engaging, experiential setting.

3D animations

We can transform your existing 3D engineering model into animations used for marketing, contractor orientation, safety animation overviews, and stakeholder engagement. The same animation can be repurposed and used in e‑learning programmes to enhance engagement by creating 3D equipment components and cutaways, flows and discreet process overviews.

We also create virtual field tours to test trainees on equipment locations, and orient employees and contractors to assets in remote locations/offshore.

In this sample animation, we rendered an existing engineering model and used the assets to develop:

  • Proof of concept
  • Animation to show the mobilization process to state officials and other government stakeholders
  • Virtual field tour used to test trainees on equipment location, and used in classrooms to orient contract personnel going offshore
  • 3D content to enhance the asset-specific e-learning program

Adobe Flash to HTML5 conversions

For over 20 years Adobe Flash was used to create animations, banner advertisements, and interactive menus for much of the web. Security issues, in combination with improved browsers and HTML5 programming options led Adobe to end support of its once ubiquitous platform.

Adobe recommends that users uninstall the Flash Player now. This means that older Flash-based e-learning programmes may not load or run.

Wood has converted 2500+ hours of Flash-based e-learning programmes to HTML5 so they are compatible with modern browsers.

Learning management system (LMS)

An online learning and competency management system is used to manage the training, evaluation, and competence records of a workforce, and allows clients to schedule, record, and monitor training and competency assessments. An LMS allows you to assign training and assessments, and track employees’ progress through online, offline, classroom, on-the-job, on-site, or off-site training. To help you maintain a compliant workforce, an LMS can also deploy compliance training and track the expiry of qualification requirements.

Wood’s OperatorSuite™ LMS is simple to set up, flexible, and can align with your project or company training framework, making the application instantly familiar and usable. Learn more about OperatorSuite.
