RelyOn Nutec UK launches technical training programs


RelyOn Nutec UK, leaders in practical and digital training for traditional and renewable energy, has launched technical training programs, backed by 500,000 pounds of investment in staff, facilities, and equipment. In recognition of the widening energy skills gap and the new skills required to power the energy transition, the launch signals RelyOn’s commitment to the energy industry in expanding its remit across its U.K. training centers in Aberdeen, Teesside, and Liverpool.

The new technical training suite includes Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) courses on Small Bore Tubing and Mechanical Joint Integrity. These programs are important for increasing efficiency of oil and gas projects, where hydrocarbon leakage reduction is of vital importance to output and safety. The programs will also be adaptable to suit the renewables market.

“We’re extremely excited to unveil our latest offering,” said Catherine Liebnitz, RelyOn Nutec UK operations director. “As established safety training providers in the energy and other hazardous industries, expanding into technical training is a natural next step for us.”
RelyOn also offers Global Wind Organisation (GWO) basic technical training, delivered across RelyOn’s digital and practical methods. The course is a first step in encouraging new talent in the wind sector and is designed for complete beginners to experienced candidates who have knowledge of technical systems and want to move into the wind sector.

“The transition will require training and skills development of up to 200,000 workers, and we don’t underestimate the challenge ahead, but we know that with our increased offering we’re able to continue to serve the industry on its journey to net zero,” Liebnitz said.

Gordon Andrew, technical training manager, will lead the new offering. Based in Aberdeen, Andrew has more than four decades of experience in the energy industry and joined RelyOn in 2021. “Our expertise in global safety training makes us perfectly placed to deliver these new courses,” Andrew said. “And with our latest investment in updating our facilities in our U.K. energy hubs, we can ensure our clients receive the highest standard of technical training, in a location that’s convenient for them.”
