Whether it be at home or overseas, we work hard to invest in the communities we drill in to ensure they’re better off as a result of us being there. One of the ways we’re doing this is by hiring, developing, and mentoring local talent on our drilling rigs through Trinidad Essential Skills Training (T.E.S.T.).
T.E.S.T. is our competency-assurance program that defines global performance standards for each position on our rigs (Floorhand, Motorhand, Derrickhand and Driller). Every rig hand that steps foot into Trinidad coveralls is assessed on these standards to ensure they can perform the skills required for their position.
Different languages, same T.E.S.T.
The assessment is designed to ensure crews have the level of knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes required to do their job correctly and safely. It also helps members of our team understand what is expected of them, and how they can move ahead in their careers with Trinidad. No matter where our crews operate in the world, these standards remain the same (they just may be taught in a different language), ensuring the quality and consistency of our drilling crews.
