KK Oil and Gas will train oil workers in Kenya following a deal with Canadian firm LearnCorp enabling employees to oil firms get the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) Rig Pass that allows them to access oil drilling sites.
The training that will happen at its 200 million training facility in Westlands, Nairobi will eliminate the need for foreign workers to access such sites a factor that has seen only a few locals gain employment.
