Edutech Highlights Latest Solutions Designed for the Oil and Gas Sector at Middle East Oil & Gas Show 2007

Focus on Operator Skill Enhancement, Point of Service Training, and Health, Safety & Environment Solutions and Services

Edutech Middle East, a leading international learning solutions provider, is showcasing its latest solutions specifically designed to improve organizational performance in the oil and gas industry at the 15th Middle East Oil and Gas Show (MEOS) 2007 being held from March 12-14 at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre. Edutech, in an exclusive partnership with RWD Technologies, is featuring its industry-specific training solutions, PlantMentor and Electronic Point of Service Training (ePOST), along with services on training management, health, safety and environment including auditing and consulting.

PlantMentor is a web-based training, simulation and certification program that allows interactive learning. Complete with a complex process simulation, it equips operators and engineers with the knowledge, skills and analysis and decision-making tools necessary for optimum unit performance and efficient troubleshooting.

ePOST, a server-based training software, allows online access of information such as manuals to help employees perform a specific task whether they are in the office or at the factory and enables managers to provide accurate information and support to their employees. It can also be loaded on a computer and accessed using the Windows-based browser and includes a self-test function to measure comprehension and progress.

"As the region's top petroleum event known for unveiling the latest oil and gas technologies, MEOS is a powerful platform for us to establish relationships with key decision-makers and present our comprehensive product portfolio. Our solutions are innovative and based on the latest concepts in training and learning, which are accessible to both workforce and management in the industry," said ASF Karim, Managing Director of Edutech.

Along with the products being showcased at the event, Edutech's team of consultants are providing visitors with varied insights such as developing a highly efficient workforce, aligning training with key performance indicators, cascading improvements to the company bottom-line and troubleshooting a critical project prior to its launch. Visitors to Edutech's booth 2624 in Hall 2 can also witness first-hand demonstrations of its e-learning programs.

"A global economy has increased the stakes for all players in the highly valued, competitive and complex oil and gas industry. Harnessing the best technological tools and techniques and possessing a performance-oriented workforce will give an organization a definite edge over competitors. Edutech debuts in the MEOS as part of our commitment to helping organizations develop a dynamic workforce through technology-enabled solutions that are relevant to their needs," concluded Karim.
