Learn what past participants have said about PetroEdge training courses

This is my first training with Petroedge. So far, the coverage helps me to understand the theory side of the course. As a participant, we need to get practical and hands on coverage to understand well. Overall, it was a great training

Graduate Trainee Electrical Engineer, Solomon Power

Every content of the course was rich in field knowledge that our team really needs. Hope to make to make use of them in the field and make a difference in reliability and efficiency. Thank you to the trainer, appreciate it

Electrical Engineer Thermal, Solomon Power

To become an electrical technician is very challenging. You have to know all testing, Inspection, Diagnostic Testing and maintenances. I was very lucky to have been involved in this training. I can go through various notes of testing or inspections etc that was covered in the course to improve myself

Electrical Technician, Solomon Power

Overall, the course is very informative. The instructor is also well-versed in the field
