ODITC, the joint venture between 3t EnerMech, Guyana-based Orinduik Development Incorporated, and Windsor Technologies, has provided its industry-leading assessment and training facilities to aid OMNI Helicopters with its local Search and Rescue (SAR) recruitment process.
Supporting the region’s sole helicopter operator the ODITC Centre of Excellence Georgetown facilitated a group of candidates with swimming assessments, their ability to use lifesaving equipment and perform an effective escape from the Helicopter Underwater Escape Trainer (HUET). Ten individuals were assessed on their performance during the exercises based on the vital role of rescue swimmers, as well as the winch person inside the helicopter, with the aim to recruit eight full time roles.
Alan Sharp, General Manager, ODITC, said: “These important assessment and training exercises for OMNI Helicopters highlight and reinforce the positive impact our state-of-the-art facility offers the local workforce and fast-growing oil and gas sector in Guyana. It is an honor to be selected to partner with OMNI to support the organization’s recruitment and growth which in turn boosts in-country skills, safety training and leading industry standards for the sector.”
Peter Gay, Country Manager, OMNI said ¨We are very pleased to be able to utilize the ODITC facilities to assess the candidates as part of the selection process as they begin their journey with OMNI Helicopters to support the offshore sector in Guyana.”
Delivering OPITO-accredited training to oil and gas workers, ODITC was established to help facilitate the growing demand for new oil and gas talent within the region via the ODITC Centre of Excellence.
