CASE STUDIES

From PLUS to Singapore

15 rigs, 2 regions, 450 assessors, 10 consultants, 1 learning platform, 90% complete and counting…

Polaris Learning has worked in partnership with a global drilling contractor based in Singapore to provide an innovative programme of assessor and internal verifier training in support of the launch of their Competence Assurance System across the organisation’s fleet of rigs.

The training was rolled out across 15 rigs working throughout south-east Asia and Africa.

The company’s supervisors completed the online assessor training programme via our online learning portal PLUS.

Each rig was appointed a dedicated consultant to support, monitor and provide feedback to those participating on the programme.

We were also commissioned to develop SCORM compliant refresher packages for both assessor and internal verifiers which were to be hosted by the client on their learning management system.

We offer three main options relating to assessor training and qualifications, including the internationally recognised SQA L&D9DI Award.
We can help you with introductory training for your internal verifiers through to full qualifications such as SQA L&D11.

We can offer short intensive training courses and modules online or through a blended learning approach.
