AIS Training and Survivex, the UK’s largest energy sector training providers, have secured a contract with decommissioning specialist Well-Safe Solutions to manage and deliver its training requirements.

The three-year contract will see AIS Training and Survivex deliver hundreds of industry-accredited technical and safety critical courses, as well as providing online Training Management software and Competency Management software.

Well-Safe recently secured £66m of investment to grow its plug and abandonment of wells business across the North Sea and Continental Europe and plans to expand its workforce to 300 over the next three years.

Gavin Taylor, commercial sales director at 3T Energy Group which owns AIS, said: “We are delighted to secure this prestigious contract with Well-Safe to provide a complete training and competency management service.

“As well as handling all course bookings, our sophisticated Transform software allows us to store and manage each individual’s skills profile and provide automated reminders when training certificates are coming up for renewal.

“This ensures skills are kept up-to-date and the workforce adheres to the highest industry standards. The service also makes the cost of training easier to forecast and will offer huge economies of scale for Well-Safe.”

Anita Martin, HR Manager from Well-Safe Solutions said: “Following an extensive tender process, we are delighted to award this contract to AIS Training and Survivex.

“Both companies have extensive experience in the Oil and Gas sector and share our ethos for quality and customer focused delivery.”
