Incumbent Worker Training

plant picture

Successful companies will not only search for the best new-hires but will also investigate ways to “upskill” their incumbent workers to meet ever changing business needs.  But, maintaining a skilled and educated workforce can be a challenge for any company as in-house training budgets are oftentimes the first area to be reduced during cost reduction programs.  “Designed by industry, for industry”, the LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, & Technology (CPET) is strategically positioned to “flange with” the petrochemical industry providing a superior learning experience for a competitive price.  

CPEt Facility PlantCPET can work with you to develop a customized training program to meet your company’s needs in areas such as:

  • Process technology,
  • Instrumentation,
  • Electrical,
  • Non-destructive testing,
  • Environmental, health, and safety, and
  • The crafts (pipe/boiler making, millwrighting, ...)
