Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Risk management is an integral part of day-to-day business activities in many industries and the offshore & marine industry brings along its own inherent areas of risks - ranging from non-compliance of assets and in accordance with legislative bodies, major cost or schedule overruns for projects, asset safety, asset damage, business interruption, pollution, and injuries to people as key examples in addition to common or standard risks inherent in most projects.

In the oil and gas industry, managing marine-based projects in an offshore environment is increasingly complex.  In this Offshore & Marine Projects and Risks Management course, you’ll work through the proactive approach to both sides of risk: threats and opportunities. The interactive approach is based on PMI® RMP methodology and designed to provide both qualitative and quantitative approaches to risk management allowing delegates to enhance risk management awareness to ensure they can manage projects better - minimising project cost/schedule overruns and thus improving project execution.

This training course will highlight:

  • Learn how to examine both the threats and opportunities facing projects from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective using industry best-practice risk management methodology.
  • Understand best how to evaluate and respond to risk at project as well as task levels.
  • Achieve the skills to anticipate possible causes of cost and schedule overruns, together with poor quality of work at the earliest possible opportunity in order to take timely corrective action to minimise or mitigate the impact.
  • Understand the importance of compliance; both for internal corporate policy and government regulations or legislative bodies, thus avoiding costly schedule or budget headaches.
