The use of training technology is helping the energy sector reduce costs, increase safety and work smarter.

New digital and online systems developed and fine-tuned over many years by AIS Training, which is part of the 3T Energy Group, are streamlining the management of training so that everything can be done virtually at the push of one button or a phone call.

Scalable to any size workforce from 1 to 5,000+, AIS Training’s Training Management System (TMS) software substantially reduces the amount of time and cost involved in managing competencies. As well as allowing instant online course bookings, the software provides worldwide mobile enabled access in real-time to skills records and training information. Individuals’ current certificates are stored online and the system sends automatic alerts to ensure critical certificates never expire. Meanwhile the system forecasts budgetary demands based on training matrices and certificate renewal dates.

For employers, project requirements can be keyed into the system to match employees with relevant skills. The system also empowers delegates to request courses, with an automatic alert sent to their line-manager to approve or decline via a mobile app.

Real-time financial reporting and forecasting means clients can see at a glance how much they’ve spent on training and any future needs so training budgets can be closely monitored and controlled. Monthly competency reports and skills gaps reports help manage workforce skills levels.

Alongside TMS, AIS Training provides clients with a dedicated project manager and bookings team to handle everything from course bookings to arranging transport and accommodation – saving them invaluable time and resources.

Some of the industry’s biggest operators are recognising the huge benefits of using AIS Training Transform Software Solutions and the company has won substantial TMS training contracts with many large energy sector companies.
