Maersk Training gets three-year deal with Diamond Offshore

Under a new global training management and service (TMS) agreement, Maersk Training will deliver “fit for purpose” and immersive simulation and crew resource management training for Diamond Offshore crews worldwide.

As part of the agreement, Maersk Training will also deliver a full suite of training and competency management services through a mobile TMS app, the training services provider said on Tuesday.

The services provided include training management administration, competency program management, and license management. The app also has a learning management system, e-learning hosting, and digital expense management.

The new deal means Diamond Offshore will have access to a global network of more than 500 qualified third-party training providers, with preferred pricing agreements negotiated by Maersk Training.

Aaron Sobel, Vice President of Human Resources, Administration, and CHRO at Diamond Offshore said, “I am excited about our alliance with Maersk Training. The team’s global training reach and top-notch expertise will help us continue our tradition of exceeding customer expectations while meeting our teams’ development needs”.

Johan Uggla, CEO of Maersk Training added: “It is truly an honour to partner with Diamond at such a strategic level. We know how much Diamond values the importance of fit-for-purpose immersive simulation training, and we are eager to carry their legacy training programs into the future.

“We are also extremely excited about the enhanced mobile app capabilities we will be delivering for Diamond. These upgrades and new features make our app a one-of-a-kind solution and a trendsetter for the oil and gas, wind, and maritime industries”.

Maersk Training has recently established a new partnership with the Shell Robert Training and Conference Centre in Louisiana to deliver training to the Gulf of Mexico offshore workforce.
