Oil & Gas Technician Training

The ABCOL Oil and Gas Production Training Platform is a live integrated training platform replicating the offshore oil and gas process production and maintenance operations which allows ASET to take production and maintenance technicians to a highly competent level in a real working environment.

The ABCOL Oil and Gas Production Training Platform consists of technology and equipment typically present in an Oil and Gas Production installation

At the heart of the new control system is the latest release of the Emerson Delta Systems V Distributed Control System (DCS) with Hart fieldbus and Hart wireless instrumentation. The plant has also retained legacy 4-20mA analogue and pneumatic technology enabling delegates to experience the full range of technology current in Oil and Gas and Chemical industries.

The fire and Gas system is controlled by Invensys Triconex Trident plc controlling Combustible and Toxic gas detectors with infra-red and ultra violet technology, heat and smoke detectors, manual alarm calls, all linked to the plant deluge system.

Maintenance Trade Tests

ECITB Technical Maintenance Trade Tests 

ASET offer a range of ECITB Technical Tests for Onshore and Offshore personnel involved in installation, maintenance and inspection of Instrumentation, Electrical & Mechanical technology and Equipment. 

Here’s How Technical Tests Work

The first part of a Technical Test examines the individual’s specific job knowledge. Only once that has been successfully concluded, can the practical task-based part of the test go ahead. This focuses not merely on the technical skill being tested, but on the ability to apply that skill safely and efficiently in the operational environment. The outcome of both parts proves whether the candidate’s current skills and knowledge are up to the job in question.

Technical Tests – The Five Stage Process

Enrolment:

An examiner (occupationally competent and specifically trained) enrols the candidate at the ASET ECITB - approved Test Centre to do a specific, named test (or tests) eg ‘Mechanical Joint Integrity - TMJI10 Dismantle, Assemble and Hand Torque Flanged Joints (Dismantle, inspect, prepare, assemble and secure flanged pipework joint)’.

Knowledge Test:

On the day, responding to randomly generated, multiple-choice, online questioning, the candidate’s knowledge of this area of work is rapidly and efficiently tested. Depending on the results they either pass on to the Practical Test, or are referred for training.

Practical Test:

Candidates undertake a highly specified practical assessment in prescribed stages, under observation. Each part of the task must be completed to the required standard. From tools to timing, from process to protective equipment, the Technical Test allows no room for error.

Feedback:

Constructive feedback from the examiner to the candidate is an important part of the Technical Test process.

Certificate Awarded:

If successful against the specified criteria ASET will issue an ECITB Certificate of Achievement, validating for three years the candidates knowledge, skill and ability to perform the task in question.
