What They’re Saying:

IPAA’s Oil & Gas Orientation for Newcomers to the Industry was designed for newcomers and recent hires to the oil & natural gas industry who are looking to be proactive and valued by their employers by understanding the structure of the industry, functions, and commercial terms.

Many companies are behind on training because of recent cost cutting and it can be difficult and expensive for companies to organize effective orientation programs in-house. We have a solution. We have teamed up with Energy Training Resources to create a well-organized, media-rich program that covers the basic industry structure, functions, and commercial terms in just one day, at a low cost.

The course will be conducted at the Houston Museum of Natural Science and participants will have access to the museum’s newly-renovated Wiess Energy Hall. As course topics are covered, participants will be able to view the Energy Hall’s related exhibits, giving them a hands-on and memorable learning experience.
