And with our network of fixed training centres and our mobile training services), we're able to provide world-class training in virtually every region around the world.
What sets our training and competency programmes apart? Our training specialists have hands-on experience in facility operations and maintenance, and they apply this knowledge to the development and delivery of customised training programs.

Workforce Nationalisation Programmes
When an organisation considers expanding into emerging international markets, often there are political, economic and competency factors to consider. Wood Group has established a thorough and measurable approach conformed to every aspect of developing a workforce nationalisation programme, from early recruitment and competency assessment to training local resources. We are globally positioned and offer rapidly deployable nationalisation solutions.
Virtually Ideal Training
Our Virtual Plant Model (VPM) approach creates a virtual and digital framework that provides operations and maintenance (O&M) personnel the ability to visually and accurately navigate a 3D spatial representation of an existing or a future facility. By utilizing this powerful tool, O&M personnel have access to a simulated hands-on experience that allows for training and assessment in a virtual environment. The tool optimizes the cost and time needed to train operators and improve operational readiness and safety, without sacrificing quality.
