The introduction of new technologies, the search for alternative methods for the development and production of hydrocarbons, as well as the digital transformation of the oil and gas industry, require adaptation to growing challenges, as a result, driving a need for more knowledge. The need for staff development and training are the topics being raised at conferences, round tables and meetings of different levels.
“The relevance of continuing professional education is growing every day. Professional standards are becoming indispensable for all the specialists engaged in the enterprises of the fuel and energy complex. In such circumstances, we observe a keen competition among educational institutions in this sphere to be growing. Large corporations create and develop their own training centers and build up corporate universities, and such monsters as Amazon or Blackboard are generating electronic educational resources, ”said Ildus Chukmarov, Deputy Director for Marketing of the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies of Kazan Federal University and Director of the Center for Advanced Training, Quality Management and Marketing
