PetroKazakhstan continues investing in educating local personnel to international OPITO standards.
In February 2014, the company launched a 10 months long training for 90 employees, who will achieve a recognized international qualification – an OPITO Petroleum Processing Technology Certificate.
There were two stages of course delegate selection:
- Written psychometric test to evaluate the ability to handle the numbers, arithmetical operations and instructions
- Oral interview to assess the level of candidate’s motivation
The training course provides the students with theoretical knowledge as well as practical competence by virtue of a computer simulator, which helps to learn the processes in a virtual environment and becoming familiar with oil and gas equipment in 3D format.
The company began its partnership with OPITO Academy in 2011, since when 117 employees of PetroKazakhstan Kumkol Resources completed various OPITO technical programs.
