The custom-built CompEx training facility has been sent from the UK to Apave Inspection to develop highly skilled and competent electricians for the country’s rapidly expanding oil and gas industry.
Located at the Apave Inspection Training Center in Takoradi, the institute is the first CompEx training center in Ghana, which trains and evaluates Ghanaian and all interested parties in the region in an internationally recognized electric field. This is a key demand for oil and gas and is in high demand in Ghana’s growing oil and gas industry. Previously, anyone seeking qualifications had to travel outside of Ghana to one of the three CompEx centers in Africa or to England.
Designed and installed by 3t Energy Group in the North of England, the facility was fully audited by CompEx in the UK before moving to the Apache Training Center in Ghana. It consists of two 40-foot-tall upgraded cargo holdings, and the indoor training facilities have been adapted for electrical training and hazardous areas assessments.
The first very successful CompEx reviews have already been provided by the Center. At the beginning of another industry, these Kovid-19 limitations were successfully transferred remotely. Following the training of 3t staff in the special department at the APV Institute, the practical assessment is based on observing and evaluating the UK-based activity with multiple cameras.
“This is an important project that we are seeing as we bring our unique technical training and skills to Ghana and the local oil and gas sector,” said Maja Todorovskaya, head of QHSE and training at Apave. The oil and gas industry in Ghana provides great job opportunities for local communities and we want to help the people of Ghana develop the skills needed to support the industry now and in the future. With our existing training facilities, we are helping oil and gas companies to find skilled manpower instead of looking far.
3t Energy Team was a good partner to deliver this project. They support us in the process of designing and implementing a comprehensive modular training solution to meet the needs of local oil and gas employers in Ghana, establishing the center locally, providing skilled education, and training our own team of teachers to move forward. . As we look to further extend the skills and abilities of Ghanaians, we plan to continue this precious relationship.
For his part, Alan Sharp, who led the project for 3D Energy Group, said: Using this vast experience, we have developed this world-class CompEx Training and Evaluation Center, which is completed quickly and efficiently. At this center, locals can find invaluable, agreed-upon skills for the industry and find the skills and qualifications that employers need. This can have far-reaching social and economic consequences and help individuals and companies throughout Ghana.
“It is amazing to see the collaborative efforts to successfully deliver the first CompEx training center in Ghana, which will be a key location for Compact,” added CompEx Director Hume Benten. AIS Services, a part of the 3D team, has a long-standing CompEx training center, and I am confident that this professionally and well-established APE courses will be popular.
