KNUST Petroleum Engineering Students Visit Rigworld Training Centre.



Final year students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) over the week paid a familiarization tour of the ultra-modern Rigworld Training Centre (RTC) located at Kejebil in the Ahanta West District of the Western Region.

The students, who were all from the Petroleum Engineering Department of the KNUST paid the visit to the training centre to expose them to hands-on practical knowledge and experience of safety training in the oil and gas as well as other areas within the extractive industry.

Senior Instructor at the RTC, Gina Donn observed the centre had invested heavily in building advanced simulators to provide realistic training focused on safety as well as building local capacity.

“We deliver more than textbook theory. RTC is an asset that would help increase safety and productivity in the extractive industry while building local capacity, skills and development, “she said.

Bismark Odame, Quality Health, Safety and Environmental Advisor at the RTC, who doubles as Health, Safety and Environment Instructor emphasized the centre had excelled in providing a wide-range of client focused safety training services and products to offshore and mining companies.

He said, “We plan and tailor training to the reality of the people we train. The company believes in constant development, improving its training and facilities all the time.”

Assistant Research Fellow at the Petroleum Engineering Department of the KNUST, Anthony Hammer explained the rationale for their visit.

“They are final year students and very soon they would go to the job market so they are embarking on the tour to be exposed to the other aspects or components which is the field work,” Hammer remarked.

He expressed satisfaction saying the purpose for their visit had been achieved as the students were exposed to the practical aspect of the theories they have been learning at school.

The KNUST Assistant Fellow stated, “They have learnt that before working in an offshore facility, you need to obtain the minimum safety standard from a certified organization. They have also been educated on other safety issues in the offshore oil and gas business.”

The Rigworld Training Centre, which is an indigenous Ghanaian company with International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001:2015 Oil and Gas accredited safety training centre offers safety training services to organizations in the offshore oil and gas industry.

The centre is fully equipped with advanced simulators, helipad and water survival training pool, medical centre, prime onsite accommodation, a restaurant and a fitness centre.

The RTC can boast of top international training experts with operational experience who had been selected to lead the programmes which also includes Lifting Competence Training.

Among the Health and Safety Environment (HSE) courses the centre offers include Basic Offshore Safety Induction Emergency Training (BOSIET), Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) and Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System.

The rest are National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) as well as Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). Enditem
