Jee Ltd, a U.K.-based independent multi-discipline engineering and training firm, has launched a series of initiatives to update its training courses through geographical expansion and technological innovation.
The company will expand the current course schedule to include Lagos, Nigeria and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, making Jee the only globally recognized subsea engineering and training firm to hold public courses in Nigeria.
Jee will send its tutors to the African and Asian countries from the company’s bases in the U.K., where they will conduct courses including subsea systems, subsea pipeline design, and risers, umbilicals and flexibles.
Jee managing director, Trevor Jee said, “Our decision to introduce our courses to Nigeria was largely based on the country’s established market and growth potential in the energy industry. The country is a key region for oil and gas exploration, with a significant percentage of its GDP coming from oil revenue. With Nigeria set to increase its exploration focus to deep offshore areas in the coming years, we wanted to bring our courses to the forefront and support this development.
“We have been delivering ‘in-house’ courses to companies in Nigeria and Malaysiafor many years and the demand has now increased to a point where the next step is to offer a range of public courses in addition to these.”
In addition to geographical expansion, Jee has added a mobile element to its courses with the company’s first mobile training app, Jeenius, designed to complement Jee’s course notes. Jee’s course notes are professionally printed and annotated with tutor comments; they are useful reference material.
Jeenius includes a PDF reader, and users can bookmark points of interest, comment and highlight. It is available to delegates who have attended courses in the past two years or are currently enrolled on any of Jee’s courses.
