Boosting operational safety capability in the oil and gas sector
It is no understatement to say that the oil and gas industry is one of the foundations of modern civilisation, powering countries to surge toward development. Nonetheless, it is still one of the most dangerous and hazardous industries around.

eLearning is a fairly old concept that has experienced a massive resurgence due to the variety of developments in computing and Internet technology.

For employers, the chief benefit is that it does not need to lose staff members for a few days. Other benefits of eLearning are:
