Chevron Nigeria Selects IHRDC to Enhance the Skills of Its Escravos Project Personnel

IHRDC has been selected by Chevron Nigeria Limited to provide a competency-based Skill Enhancement Process (“SEP”) for existing employees and new recruits to the Escravos Project.

(PRWEB) October 31, 2005 -- International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) announced today it has been contracted by Chevron Nigeria to develop a competency-based training program called the Skill Enhancement Process (“SEP”) for about 1,000 existing employees and new recruits at their Escravos Project, a major oil and gas production facility.

Bradford Donohue, IHRDC Director of Corporate Development and Program Manager noted “We are delighted to bring our Competency Assurance Process, specialists and other resources to Nigeria to assist Chevron with this challenging assignment.”

At the outset, IHRDC specialists will work closely with a Chevron Nigeria team to develop an execution plan, which will include project strategic and training objectives, training policies and international standards of training for Operations & Maintenance (O&M) personnel at Escravos.

IHRDC Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will then build job descriptions and Competency/Skills Enhancement Models for every major title O&M job within the Escravos project.

Using these models, IHRDC and Chevron Nigeria specialists will conduct assessments, perform objective verifications and develop individual skill gap analysis for approximately 1000 employees. Using the skill gap analysis output IHRDC Specialists will define a 3-4 year training plan, schedule and budget to enhance the skills of each employee.

Ayman Meneassy, Vice President of IHRDC, Middle East & Africa said “I am grateful to Chevron for inviting us to apply our Competency Assurance Process (CAP) in Nigeria. We have used it to develop capable O&M personnel at drilling, oil and gas production, refining, gas processing and LNG facilities throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and are happy to expand into West Africa.”.

Headquartered in Boston with offices in Amsterdam, Cairo and Caracas, International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) is a privately owned company that has been providing highly regarded management, technical and operations training programs and competency-based e-learning systems to the oil and gas industry for more than 35 years.

The company’s e-Learning program, the International Petroleum Industry Multimedia System (IPIMS), won the 2003 Corporate Award for Excellence in Distance Learning Programming from the U.S. Distance Learning Association in Washington, D.C. IPIMS is currently licensed by over 55 companies worldwide.
