Competency Maps

Your Blueprint for Success

Developed in collaboration with the PetroSkills Alliance, our Competency Maps are the industry benchmark for structured, relevant training.

About PetroSkills Competency Maps

Under the direction of the PetroSkills Alliance Advisory Board, subject matter experts from Alliance Member companies serve as curriculum advisors to define the technical skills required at specific levels of competence. The result is a common, agreed-upon set of competency maps that form the framework for all PetroSkills courses.

Our Competency Maps are continually refreshed to address new industry challenges and to keep pace with constant changes in technology and industry needs.
