Oil And Gas Safety Training

Many oil and gas operator companies require specific training which provides drilling operators and supervisors with an overview of the safety hazards and day to day operations which are unique to the oil and gas industry. LSCI understands that the oil and gas industry is unique in its operations and hazards, therefore we have trainers on staff who are accredited to provide the AWARE and SafeLandUSA training courses.

LSCI will provide the AWARE or SafeLandUSA training in groups at your company’s location. Students will receive a certification photo ID badge upon successful completion of the class. The student training certification cards do not expire.
