Course of Study: Level 3 Production IVQ Advanced Diploma in Oil and Gas Operations – Process Technician qualification

My name is James Nicholas and I attended the Kenson School of Production Technology between the period of 2015 to 2016. During that period I pursued the Level 3 Production IVQ Advanced Diploma in Oil and Gas Operations – Process Technician qualification, which turned out to be one of the most beneficial training experiences I’ve had.

The overall structure of the program was designed and executed quite professionally. Course material was delivered most effectively by competent lecturers, whose personal experiences provided valuable insight and aided my understanding of complex concepts and principles.

The administrative staff at the school was always ready to lend a hand and consisted of some of the most accommodating persons I’ve ever come across. Most memorably, students were treated like family, and all matters brought to their attention were treated with both alacrity and careful attention.

Overall the facilities were adequate to satisfy the demands of this course. The library and computer lab were particularly useful resources for researching and revision of course material. Most outstanding was the plant simulator. For those of us who never stepped foot on a processing plant; simulations provided practical understanding and exposure to the theoretical concepts covered (Job safety analysis, start up and shut down etc.). I can’t speak highly enough of this course!
