3t EnerMech, Orinduik Development and Windsor Technologies to launch Guyana’s first oil & gas training centre

A venture between 3t EnerMech and Orinduik Development Incorporated Training Centre will deliver Guyana’s first in-country, training facility for the local workforce, supporting the development of the country’s fast growing offshore oil & gas sector. This venture will provide an internationally accredited facility in alignment with building on the recent enacted local content policy. Established to empower and provide Guyanese people with key skills and training certifications that are required to work in the offshore environment, the new 3t EnerMech Guyana Training Centre of Excellence combines expert instruction in-classroom training facilities, blended learning software and technology, as well as fully immersive simulators for high hazard activity learning. Joseph Lichon, president Americas for EnerMech, said: “It’s our mission to develop local content globally and to help create safer, smarter, more sustainable workforces. Until now, Guyana nationals working in the oil and gas sector would be required to travel to Trinidad and Tobago, the US or Canada, for accredited training, making it very costly and time consuming. This is compounded by the logistical challenges of the pandemic including travel restrictions, additional requirements, and limited flight availability.”
