14 November webinar to focus on accelerating ‘time to competence’

Posted on 30 October 2013

IADC will air a new webinar, “How to build a performance-ready engineer,” on 14 November. The discussion will focus on how companies can accelerate their “time to competence” for green drilling engineers. Sponsored by PetroSkills, the webinar also will explain what a performance-ready technical professional must know in today’s high-activity industry and best practices to accelerate competency. “The drilling industry needs competent engineers, and we needed them yesterday,” said Mike Killalea, IADC group vice president/publisher. “This webinar on developing performance-ready drilling engineers could not be more timely or of greater value.”

The webinar will include a practical example of bringing a young engineer up to speed for a specific problem. The scenario includes possible outcomes, risks and avoiding near misses. Competency maps are also tied into the scenario.

The three participants are:

Ron Hinn, PetroSkills vice president of training;

Bruce G. Kitchel, chief drilling and completions engineer, Gulf Coast Business Unit, ConocoPhillips;

James Bobo, ConocoPhillips principal drilling engineer (ret.) and well construction discipline manager, PetroSkills.
