The energy sector significantly impacts the world economy and affects pricing of all goods and services across sectors. Owing to its incredible global demand, the need to explore natural resources and research on discovering alternate forms of energy, puts massive stress on these corporations. It is also an industry balancing safe and environmental-friendly methods of producing energy while keeping the activity profitable.

With the market for energy increasing globally, there is a continuous need for training and betterment. It is also a sector which contributes towards high levels of employment from sourcing natural resources, to setting up distribution channels, and finally powering your homes and vehicles. A lot of people are employed directly and indirectly.

The need for training within this industry is never-ending as regulations and protocols are put in place regularly to monitor lawful business activities, safety of workers, and environment safety measures.

  • Shortage of highly trained instructors: With increase in the number of experienced Individuals retiring, the industry is facing a shortage in trainers capable of mentoring the next generation. Furthermore, due to the remote location of wells, oil rigs, and gas lakes, facilitating a traveling trainer becomes an arduous and time-consuming process.
  • Need for simulation-based training: Working on an oil rig or a gas plant requires practical and theoretical training. Many aspects of this work profile involves seeing and mimicking appropriate set of actions. Simulating an emergency escape is just one of the many simulation-based courses needed while on the job.
  • High-risk environments demand compliance: Ensuring the workforce are following safety standards while being compliant is very important. In this industry, safety and compliance are not yearly or biannual training initiatives. They are regular activities ensuring workers are aware of and trained to handle the high-risk environment.
  • Shortage of finances: Even with the industry being a multi-trillion dollar industry, oil and exploration companies face growing shortages in funds required to hire, run, and maintain large-scale exploration efforts. Amidst these increasing costs, training costs become an added overhead to these exploration companies.
  • New technologies: New technologies are implemented to make exploration and sourcing resources simple, but the training required to understand these technologies is complex and requires access to ready information and regular assessments which add to overhead costs.
