Petrofac training services unit to identify KSAs for IDAC

The Training Services business (PTS) of oil and gas facilities service provider Petrofac has been awarded a contract with the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IDAC) to enhance the organisation’s competence system for the drilling community.

The project will identify generic rig positions, knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) for highly specialised occupations, such as subsea engineers, and create formal evaluation process guidelines based on the KSA position requirements.

The KSAs will help clarify job roles and responsibilities and find development opportunities to close any gaps that arise from the evaluation process.

The work will be completed in a phased approach, beginning with the identification of KSAs and evaluation guidelines for safety-critical positions.
