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 360° 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 or offshore.

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

  • Project overview animation for government consultation and permitting
  • Animation to demonstrate the mobilisation process for project stakeholders, state and federal agencies, and operating company
  • Virtual field tours to test trainees on equipment location and orient contract personnel going offshore
  • 3D content to enhance the asset-specific e-learning programme

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.
