Oil and gas training and competency development organisation, International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) will provide its training solutions to the operations, maintenance and integrity personnel of the Trans Anatolian natural gas pipeline project (TANAP). IHRDC will provide a combined package including competency assessment and development services, CMS Online software and computer-based training that will include custom learning modules created specifically for the TANAP project.

The 1850 km TANAP will transport natural gas from Azerbaijan to the gateway of the European pipeline network in Greece. Construction of the pipeline formally began in March 2015 and is expected to be completed in 2018.

IHRDC’s aim is to develop an effective competence management system for TANAP to assure the competency of its workforce and that personnel have the essential skills and knowledge for their role. IHRDC will establish pathways to high performance in line with TANAP’s operational requirements. To achieve this, IHRDC will deploy a package of competency-based development training plans, and learning solutions for the pipeline operator, including its CMS Online software.

IHRDC will create curricula for each discipline, broken down into blocks of blended learning events, based on the competency requirements for each position. Each block will contain one or more courses that will include instructor led classes, e-learning courses and/or on-the-job training.

“We are delighted to be working with TANAP to help them fulfill their comprehensive training regimen,” said Brad Donohue, IHRDC’s VP for Competency Management. “The TNANP link between Asia and Europe has enormous strategic significance, and we are not only excited to be part of the project but also to contribute to the development of the local workforce and assurance of their competencies.”
