The facility will be the new headquarters of Score Training and seven dedicated training workshops are to be devoted to the provision of technical training courses to the company’s oil and gas industry clients in addition to employees of Score Group plc.
Sixty guests were provided with tours of the training workshops, design and multimedia suites and parts of the original buildings within the six acre expanse, located on the site of the former HMP Peterhead.
Newly developed amenities for training in valve awareness, joint integrity and pressure testing were unveiled. Workshops are equipped with a range of tooling, hydrostatic and gas test cells and PSV test cell. A flow loop and PSV container were also shown to demonstrate how the company simulates real working conditions throughout each hands-on training course.
Examples of the company’s promotional, training and safety videos, each created by a team of in-house graphic designers, were also shown. These are produced for the Score Group of companies as well as third party clients.
During the opening presentation Leighton Willox, Managing Director of Score Training explained how the expansion of facilities will allow for increased course availability and an enhanced training experience. Speaking of recent ECITB approval to conduct Mechanical Joint Integrity (MJI) training and testing, plans to attain further approvals for Small Bore Tubing (SBT) training delivery were also revealed.
