PEC Core Compliance

Core Compliance, is a standardized program covering the health, safety, and environmental training most requested by oilfield operators and other host employers. Core Compliance is instructor-led training that, in addition to being SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf accredited, provides training level certificates beyond the awareness level for over 30 selected topics. The classroom presentation is designed to build on common content in a high intensity 3-day format.

The Core Compliance training program will ensure your employees are trained in the safety topics commonly required by operators in their pre-qualification surveys and training matrices. Based on accepted industry practices supported and recommended by operators, PEC Core Compliance is the most comprehensive and cost effective way to meet the entry level safety training needs your customer and government are calling for.

Upon completion of the course, each student receives a PEC photo ID, certificate of completion, and each student’s information is entered into the online PEC Training Tracker database.

Students who successfully complete Core Compliance training course will require annual refresher training to remain in compliance with environmental, health & safety regulations. When administered annually, PEC Core Refresher provides the necessary refresher training to maintain the training certificates obtained through Core Compliance.
