We are always working on developing our people, and the interpersonal and behavioural skills training is critical to ensuring that our organisation lives by our Core Values.

Our industry has limitless opportunities and Wood Group PSN has huge ambitions. To achieve these, we have created a global network of award-winning, training and staff development initiatives to provide our customers with the skilled people they need.
Tailored technician training wherever you need it90% of our people work for us in the country they call home. To develop local talented people to meet our customers' construction, operations and maintenance needs we have formed a technical training alliance with Aberdeen Skills and Enterprise Training Ltd. (ASET). We provide tailored packages to internationally recognised, industry endorsed standards, with experience of 27 countries across five continents.
Nationalisation, nationalisation, nationalisationOur training and competence programmes underpin each contract nationalisation plan by determining the timescale for transfer of expatriate roles to national employees. We have extensive global experience of providing training and technology transfer to national workforces in diverse areas including Chad, Cameroon, Canada, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Northern Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Egypt.
