ILX Group announced that it has won a major global contract to help KCA DEUTAG, a major international drilling contractor, to deliver project management training across 22 countries. ILX will host a secure e-learning platform to deliver both the APM Introductory Certificate in Project Management and PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner courses to remote geographic locations such as the arctic conditions in Siberia and Kazakhstan and offices based in the deserts of the Middle East and North Africa.
KCA DEUTAG is one of the world's largest international drilling and engineering contractors working onshore and offshore with a focus on safety, quality and operational performance. KCA DEUTAG employs about 8,000 people and operates worldwide. The company has a history of over 100 years of drilling and engineering activities across the globe, and undertakes projects in some of the most harsh and demanding environments in the world, the Middle East and North Africa, West Africa, Siberia and Kazakhstan, and the challenging offshore conditions in the North Sea and offshore Sakhalin Island, far Eastern Russia. KCA DEUTAG has ambitious growth plans in 2010 and believes Best Practice Project Management skills provide a critical link to ensuring business success.
Based at KCA DEUTAG's headquarters in Aberdeen, Scotland, Ian MacKenzie, Director of Projects, Technical Services and Business Excellence said:
In any one year, KCA DEUTAG has a number of on-going rig maintenance projects, upgrading and modification projects and expansion into new regions. This includes the expansion of the rig fleet by six new-build rigs - each a significant project in itself. Amidst its ambitious growth plans in 2010, KCA DEUTAG is also embracing a number of change management programmes within the organisation which will involve a number of geographically dispersed stakeholders and project managers within Human Resources, IT and Finance departments. The new online courses are available to all senior or supervisory managers who are currently managing projects or are likely to do so.
