Bespoke and blended learning

As part of our commitment to provide solutions which help industry deliver on their Net Zero and Digital Transformation approach requirements, the virtual learning option helps improve employee inclusion, engagement and productivity.

Bespoke Learning. Cogent Skills merge your corporate training, operational procedures and leadership messages with our industry leading training course content – resulting in an advanced corporate training programme, delivered by subject matter industry experts. This can then be converted into:

Blended Learning. A Dynamic and digital training programme, facilitated by subject matter industry experts via the virtual classroom. Using multimedia resources, industry case studies and animated lessons learned films - you get custom corporate branded training assets, multimedia content, plus professional corporate film production with voice-over artists to deliver your messages

Boards should have at least one person who is accountable for process safety performance - who understands how the decisions made at board level, can impact upon safety both now and into the future. Process Safety Leadership training is an effective way of ensuring that these boards have the right level of competency.

2021 major hazard leadership interventions highlighted the links between poor performance on site and a lack of competency in the management of major hazards at senior leadership level.
