3t Energy Group (Bournemouth, United Kingdom), a market-leading provider of training, technology, and simulation solutions for the energy sector, has appointed Deborah Yeats as training and competence director. 

Yeats joins the group as it launches a new strategic training and competence consultancy division, in which she is tasked with providing technical training and competence consultancy services, systems, and programs globally.

With training and development—including the re-skilling and up-skilling of national and ex-patriate workforces—more important than ever across the energy sector, this additional offering further reinforces 3t’s position in striving for a safer, smarter, and more efficient workforce.

With over 30 years of experience in training and competence, learning and development, and digital training across the energy, maritime, and manufacturing sectors, Yeats brings with her a wealth of global experience from working on multi-discipline and multi-cultural projects in safety-critical industries, according to the company.

“I’ve worked with 3t on some incredibly exciting projects already, so this opportunity with the group is a natural fit for me and offers the chance to continue to work with a team that I respect greatly,” she says. My experience of working with many different disciplines and cultures, in the safety-critical industries we serve, will support 3t with its goal of transforming the future of training through a tailored blend of traditional training methods and digital learning technologies, ensuring a robust competence system is first in place.”

3t cites a growing local and global client base across the energy and renewables sectors, as well as the recent acquisition of an additional training and learning business within the utilities and construction sector. Deborah will work across 3t’s group of businesses incorporating Drilling Systems, AIS Survivex, UCT, 3t Transform and 3t EnerMech, offering best-in-class training and immersive learning solutions for customers and clients.

“We are delighted to welcome Deborah to 3t,” says Kevin Franklin, CEO. “Her experience, passion, and track record in implementing blended training and competence solutions will support our global client base. Her range of knowledge and skills, not only in energy and renewables, but also across all areas of business means she has invaluable insight into what our clients need today, and in the future.”

3t Energy Group describes itself as a leading provider of training services and technology solutions to the global energy industry. It includes the likes of bp, Shell, Total, Wood, Saudi Aramco, Transocean, Valaris, Vantage Drilling, Bilfinger, Schlumberger, and Robert Gordon University amongst its clients. 

The company says it is the top provider of training to the U.K. energy sector and U.K. offshore wind market, and its drilling and well control simulation business is a world leader, as well. 

Across its businesses, 3t has offices in Europe, North America, China, and the Middle East.
