Partnership to deliver risk management training in Iraq

Offshore staff

DUBAI, UAE – Stirling Group has partnered with the EU Iraq Energy Centre (EUIEC) to provide risk management training to the Iraqi oil and gas industry to help build a highly skilled and competent workforce.

The health, safety and environmental services provider will deliver a series of three-day courses on dealing with uncertainty and risk in the global energy sector from its training center in Erbil, Kurdistan. 

Aimed at graduates and developed in partnership with the KRG Ministry of Natural Resources’ Competency Development Program, the course will cover a range of concepts, principles, and practices for dealing with potential risks when working offshore.

Delivered in a workshop format to encourage discussion, debate and knowledge transfer, the courses will include structured lessons, group activities, and simulated exercises.

The partnership between Stirling Group and the EUIEC aims to facilitate further development of the Iraqi oil and gas industry to create skilled and highly competent workers across the Middle East

Angus Neil, managing director of Stirling Group, said: “It’s vital that oil and gas workers are exposed to the potential risks and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to ensure compliance in the hazardous, high-risk and hostile environments.

“Working in partnership with industry bodies like the EUIEC ensures that our training is going some way in building the workforce required to meet the region’s future energy targets.”
