INTERNATIONAL training leader 20|20 Business Insight is partnering with Mintra Training Portal to significantly boost the global delivery of its world-leading, specialist project management training for energy sector workers in remote locations.
20|20 is the largest provider of Association of Project Management (APM) and Project Management Institute (PMI) courses and certification to the oil and gas industry, and a range of public and private sector organisations, delivering more than 200 courses worldwide.
Mintra Training Portal, one of Europe’s largest providers of learning, training and competency for the Oil & Gas Industry, delivers solutions to more than 500 Oil and Gas Companies and over 1 million personnel. The recent investment from private equity firm, Riverside, means that the company will continue to expand in its current market, delivering solutions that can reduce training costs and ensure competence among workers in the industry on both the UK and Norwegian continental shelf.
The partnership will enable 20|20 Business Insight’s APM and PMI programmes to be made available through Mintra’s Learning Management System, TrainingPortal, with both businesses offering courses from their respective areas of expertise to mutual and new clients from a single source.
20|20 aims to increase revenue in the offshore oil and gas sector by around £500,000 per annum through the new partnership.
Tony Marks, chief executive of 20|20 Business Insight, said: “This is an ideal partnership for 20|20 and Mintra, providing significant opportunities for mutual business development.
Mintra Training Portal’s online platform allows clients to access training materials in any location, reducing the requirement for managers to be diverted from the core duties for training events in the traditional conference centre environment.
Delivering our APM and PMI course portfolio through Mintra’s TrainingPortal provides operators and oilfield service companies of all scales with an efficient, cost-effective method of ensuring management competence is maintained on and offshore.”
20|20, headquartered in Dundee, Scotland, has international operations across the UK and the US. It delivers training courses and consulting services in every continent of the world.
