Course of Study: IVQ Level 3 – Mechanical Maintenance Technician & Level 4 – Offshore Production Operator Training

The Kenson School of Production Technology has been instrumental to my success and development. I completed the IVQ Level 3 – Mechanical Maintenance Technician course (MMT08) as well as the Level 4 – Offshore Production Operator Training (OPOT10). My classroom experience was a positive one. Classes are well-lit, spacious, air conditioned and well appointed. The classrooms are equipped with media support which are used in the teaching process. The environment is conducive to learning.

The quality of teaching was excellent for both lectures and labs. Kenson employs lecturers that not only have a vast theoretical knowledge on the subject matter but also brings with them years of experience and expertise in the given field. I was particularly impressed with how the lecturers would challenge you to be an independent thinker, a problem solver and to always strive for betterment. I remember making 95 marks in a given unit and my lecturer said, “Timothy that is excellent but the 5 marks you lost revisit those areas and be proficient at it. Be a Technician among Technicians and an Operator among Operators. Let your work and attention to detail be what you are known by.” Those words have resonated with me.

Interaction with staff has always been professional, courteous and cordial. They were always willing to provide assistance when needed. The facilities at the Kenson School of Production Technology, its labs and simulator provide a realistic representation of an Offshore Installation. Students are able to interface with the three phase separator and the well control panel in a safe and controlled environment.

Kenson remains at the pinnacle for training in the Oil and Gas sector, as their courses and training are relevant to the industry and are utilized by many exploration, production and service companies. I wholeheartedly recommend Kenson as your preferred institution for excellent training in the Oil and Gas sector. It would be a very expedient decision, one that you won’t regret.
