Emerson receives contract for Kuwait Oil Company training

Emerson’s most comprehensive training program to date designed to help KOC enhance maintenance-engineering expertise

AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 29, 2013) --  Emerson Process Management  has worked with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) to develop a comprehensive training program that helps new engineers develop skills needed to maintain a running oil production facility in northern Kuwait.  Developed under a contract that KOC awarded to Emerson in May 2013, the first-of-its-kind program is expected to lead to further cooperation between the companies. 

As part of this contract, Emerson’s Educational Services team has launched a new aspect of customer training called Workforce Effectiveness.  Workforce Effectiveness begins with an assessment of the customer’s unique needs, continues with the development of a plan tailored to address those needs, and wraps up with measurement of the results. 

The 19-week “boot camp” program designed for KOC covers field instrumentation, the DeltaV™ automation system, and cyber security, as well as process control -- including advanced control and complex control strategies. The training will be conducted at Emerson’s regional training centers in the U.S. at both Austin, Texas, and Marshalltown, Iowa, facilities.

“We are seeing more customers engage in a broad course of training for their newer employees,” said Dorothy Hellberg, director of Emerson Process Management’s Educational Services.  “As customers expand their engineering staff to replace experienced retiring employees or to staff new facilities, condensed training programs are critical to smooth project execution and continuing operations.  Our services can easily be configured to meet those needs.” 

The training project is a joint effort between Emerson’s Lifecycle Care and Educational Services employees.  Eight Emerson Process Management business units and five complementary instrumentation companies are part of the overall training program.
