ARC Training International focuses on oil and gas sector security training

There are few industries that require an in-depth understanding of security management as much as the oil and gas sector. Personal safety aside, the risks of theft, terrorism, environmental damage and reputational impact are some very real problems which can have devastating effects to organisations all over the world. Drawing on significant Case Studies from around the world, ARC Training International’s online course entitled ‘Managing Security Risks in the Oil and Gas Sector’ addresses some of the more complex risks faced by today’s practising security and risk professionals.

Utilising elements of the ANSI/API STD 780 Security Risk Assessment Methodology and additional resources, the training highlights the spectrum of risk elements that have the potential to impact upon security management operations as experienced by security practitioners in the sector. This means that delegates can be assured the qualification they’ll receive has the credibility of being provided by experts in the field.

Plugging into a range of environments, the training examines the risks present in both upstream and downstream operations. Delegates will learn how to develop risk management theory and then apply this learning to the online modules. The core modules covered on this IQ Level 4 course are as follows:

*Security risk analysis in the oil and gas sector

*Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Rights and community management

*Managing activism risk

*Managing acts of militancy and terrorism against the oil and gas sector

*Oilfield and pipeline security

*Refinery security

*Maritime and offshore security

*Downstream (retail security)

This sector-specific online programme is intended for security managers or consultants in the oil and gas industry, or those seeking work in this sector. Participants should have a baseline level of security management knowledge.
