ADC VIRTUAL ACADEMY is a unique e-learning environment designed to equip a new generation of oilfield professionals with a foundational understanding of the variety of systems and operations found onboard a modern oil rig.
With over 80 units and 19 course modules available, the Academy is accessible anywhere in the world 24/7, enabling students to enjoy not only the freedom to schedule training to suit their lifestyles, but also determine the pace of learning which best suits their ability.
Written by seasoned oilfield professionals and administered by a dedicated development team, one of the Academy’s key objectives is to create learning which feels industry authentic, as if the rig’s OIM was alongside imparting his first-hand knowledge and years of experience, in an easy to understand language and style.
It’s that very understanding, and its resultant effect on competence that has driven the Academy’s learning construct. Every course within the syllabus employs a unique yet simple ‘pass to proceed’ structure designed specifically to develop real-time understanding. Results have proven that when understanding is established, competence levels increase significantly.
