Norway-based e-learning company Seagull Oil & Gas has launched a new training package for offshore personnel who work in explosive atmospheres.
The new e-learning series builds on International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards and encompasses basic understanding, installation in Ex-areas, Exi installation.
Other content offered as part of the package include cable entry, IP degree, as well as inspection and maintenance.
Seagull Oil & Gas managing director Morten Aasen said: "We believe today’s market requires more cost-efficient and better Ex and El safety training.
"Together with leading subject experts, we have developed a series of new courses covering these safety-critical subjects."
E-learning will also be offered as part of blended learning.
As part of the courses, the company will offer content including e-learning modules that require two days of classroom study covering theory.
The CompEx centre in Norway, ExTek, will offer the self-study course components.
Aasen added: "Blended learning and self-study will be a greater part of future training, both to increase quality and reduce the cost of training."
BW Offshore and Seagull announced partnership in January 2015 to develop training material for the offshore industry.
The new material was developed to cover BW Offshore’s process and production operations.
Seagull said that the partnership was aimed at offering exactly what the industry needs.
