Whether you are a new or an experienced engineer or manager, our technical training courses within the oil, gas and energy industry offer a variety of levels to help you be productive in your work. Our courses are lead by managers and lead engineers responsible for development of the relevant offshore standards and recommended practises and are designed and delivered in accordance with the latest educational methods. Introductory and expert level courses as well as customer specific on site training are offered upon request.

In-house training

In addition to the scheduled public courses, we offer standard and customised technical training to meet our customers' needs.

Blast and ballistic protection design

In recent times the need to protect ourselves from the hazards of explosion or ballistic attack, be they the result of accident or terrorist activity, has grown. This five day course provides an introduction to the techniques required to design buildings to protect their occupants from the effects of explosions or ballistic attack.

Environmental conditions & loads

This course can be of interest for all professionals that are involved in design and evaluation of marine structures. Focusing on the necessary steps in the load assessment of marine structures, the course provides state-of-the-art methods for deriving corresponding loads, considering wind, wave and current conditions.

HAZOP method and leader course

HAZOP (HAZard and OPerability) studies are recognised as a good way of providing guidance on how to manage the risks of different systems and procedures. In this training DNV GL tutors combine formal presentations with practical workshops, in which delegates will gain hands-on experience from participating in a HAZOP session.

HISC - design and material considerations course

A large research and testing effort over the past five years has clarified the limitations of duplex materials with regards to subsea use. This course will give you a basic understanding of Hydrogen induced stress cracking (HISC) risk factors and failure mechanisms, as well as a more in-depth knowledge of design requirements.

Introduction to drilling and well operations

This introductory course gives an overview of drilling and well operations, drilling systems and challenges in the drilling industry. It will provide the participants with a basic understanding of drilling and well technology and terminology.

Introduction to Integrated Software Dependent Systems (ISDS)

Machines and systems are becoming more complex and more dependent on software. As a response to this, DNV GL has introduced the optional class notation of ISDS.

Introduction to welding for offshore applications

This course is intended for personell who have a role related to welding of offshore oil and gas pipelines and production systems. The training will give an improved understanding of different material issues related to welding in the offshore industry.

Materials technology for offshore oil and gas installations

This course offers an introduction to materials technology applied in the oil and gas offshore industry, covering metallic materials, fabrication methods and material issues encountered in development projects. The course will interest engineers within materials, design and manufacturing and fabrication follow-up.

Offshore pipeline training

The DNV GL offshore pipeline training programme is built up as a module concept, offering courses covering all aspects of pipeline technology from concept to operation. These courses will interest both new and experienced engineers, as it includes courses from a generic basic level to specialist courses into each subject area.

Qualification of new technology

This course will give the participants an overview and background of the DNV-RP-A203, and the qualification work process presented therein. Technology qualification can be applied for components, equipment and systems, which can be defined as new technology. The course is available to help guide you through the principles and tools available.

Pipeline Training Course - Flow and Materials

The most significant threats to pipeline operations are loss of integrity and flow interruptions. The threats can arise from inadequate materials properties, corrosion, adverse flow regimes and hydrate, wax or scale blockages.

Riser & umbilicals

DNV GL offers two courses; a technology overview course focusing on the essential elements involved in riser and umbilical design and a analysis course with special attention to global analysis.

Ship and port security training

Ship and port security provides a range of courses to help clients meet the requirements of the ISPS Code and be prepared for situations which might arise.

Subsea training

The DNV GL subsea courses give you insight based on the Recommended Practices covering aspects of subsea technology from the concept stage to operation. Courses are of interest for professionals, as well as new and experienced engineers, as courses range from basic generic introduction to specialist subject level.
