No travel? No problem! The pandemic has forced many businesses and workers to find new and creative ways to get things done. When office closures and travel restrictions prevented us from conducting our on-site training for members, we looked at ways to deliver this important content remotely. We are pleased to now offer members the option of virtual training, not only during the pandemic but as an option to supplement or replace on-site training after the pandemic subsides.
While face-to-face training is usually most effective, there are some advantages to the virtual option. The key advantage is that we can include more attendees in each training event. There are fewer limitations on classroom space and other resources, so classes can be larger. The virtual option also eliminates the time and expense of travel, which makes the training more accessible to geographically dispersed teams.
Two of our most popular training classes are described below, and more information can be found under "Training" on our website.
Natural Gas Operator Training
Our on-site natural gas operator training has always been one of our most popular training programs and now we can deliver the content remotely. The topics include:
Natural gas operator training is often used to reinforce training that is conducted by member companies, and it can be tailored to fit your company's specific policies and procedures.
Electric and Natural Gas Incident Investigation Workshops
These workshops focus on the scope and purpose of conducting an incident investigation, the importance of measurements and photographs, collecting evidence, documentation, and the actions to take when arriving at the scene.
Our team works with the member company to plan and coordinate the virtual aspect of assembling the participants, most of whom are working remotely. Each workshop is conducted in four-hour segments, with natural gas workshops taking place over the course of two days and electric workshops over the course of three days. The workshops are offered free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis, and they can accommodate up to 40 participants.
