Introduce new potential recruits to an overview of the oilfield industry.
Educate recruits on the roles, rights and responsibilities expected of them and from the industry.
Create a simple but intensive, general oilfield operator orientation and evaluation program that is not career specific but accepted by the leaders in the industry from the drilling, servicing, trucking and production service lines.
Reduce the rate of injuries and incidents common with new recruits through real world simulations and onsite demonstrations by exposing recruits to common conditions and dangerous situations that can occur on well sites in a controlled environment.
Give employers confidence that potential recruits who take the program have been made fully aware of the working conditions, physical-mental-emotional and professional expectations all companies have for all recruits in the industry.
Increase employee retention and decrease overall turnaround.
Evaluate potential new recruits work ethic, physical and mental endurance, attitude, attention to detail, mechanical knowledge, willingness to learn, ability to follow instructions, tardiness, memory and ability to work in groups.
Make program difficult enough so approximately 10-15% of potential recruits volunteer to drop out. These dropouts are the individuals who are not willing to make the commitment to themselves or the industry. This commitment is both required and expected to be successful in the industry and an asset to their employers.
