AIS to provide skills training for Wood Group
Industrial training specialist AIS Training has secured a three-year contract with Wood Group to manage and deliver the company’s UK training.
AIS said that the company would provide Wood Group with over 800 industry-accredited technical and safety-critical skills courses.
The training specialist will also supply a competency management system, as well as associated management services for booking inquiries, course scheduling of delegates, and certificate expiry and renewals.
The company owns and operates four industrial training centers in the UK, including a 20-acre facility in North East England.
Winning this training contract has allowed AIS Training to invest in a new £1 million ($1.3 million) purpose-built center in Aberdeen’s Westhill area.
AIS added that the Wood Group deal is the latest in a number of ‘high profile’ contract wins for the company, which has also won several multi-million-pound training agreements with other oil and gas companies in the last six months.
Managing Director at AIS, Paul Stonebanks, said: “As a result of the contract we will now train thousands more delegates annually across our three UK locations in Aberdeen, North Tyneside, and Grimsby.”
