According to the General Manager of Rigworld Training Center, Mr. Carlos Akyeampong, the initial idea to setup the center arose in 2016, and was inspired by the need to find a good solution to the issue of lack of proper expertise in the Oil and Gas Industry.

"The need to carry out jobs safely and competently within the oil and gas industry propelled the idea for an offshore training center. This is also in line with the regulators of the oil and gas sector, Petroleum Commission’s commitments to as much as possible ensure local content and participation within the industry." He said.
