Company Summary

Access to workers that can safely and efficiently operate a rig is a strategic differentiator for Oil & Gas rig companies. The work environment for rig crews is dangerous and the work is hard leading to a staff turnover rate of over 50% per year. The only effective way to reduce accident rates and prevent downtime is to adequately train new staff before they get on a rig and to maintain high levels of expertise. CI is the proven solution.
