Leading software and learning technology company, 3t Transform, is shaking up the energy training market after receiving OPITO-approval for its next generation digital Minimum Industry Safety Training (MIST) refresher course.
The MIST qualification is a mandatory requirement for anyone working in the offshore industry and must be completed every four years. Earlier this year, OPITO released a new digital standard (MIST Further) enabling experienced offshore workers to renew their MIST certificates via approved online courses.
3t Transform’s new OPITO-approved digital MIST refresher includes the most up-to-date e-learning content in five key areas: major accident hazards, workplace hazards and personal safety, risk management, control of work and helicopter safety.Six months in development, the course uses the very latest training technology to personalise content to each individual’s pre-existing knowledge and includes interactive activities to maximise engagement.
It is the latest e-learning course developed by 3t Transform, which is part of the 3t Energy Group. 3t Transform has created an extensive portfolio of over 50 of the most in-demand e-learning courses, from HCA-approved Dangerous Goods by Air Awareness to Working at Height to Authorised Gas Tester. These traditional e-learning courses are supported by a ground-breaking mobile micro learning app which reinforces and vastly improves learners’ knowledge retention.
The 3t Transform micro learning app, known as ‘R3’, is inspired by powerful gamification technology and uses the theory of spaced repetition, lively graphics and bite-sized ‘work-outs’ and quizzes to test delegates’ knowledge, ensuring higher knowledge retention levels and reducing knowledge fade.
Sally Finnie, vice president of 3t Transform, said: “Receiving OPITO approval for our online MIST refresher course is fantastic news and is testament to the quality of our digital learning and development team headed up by Linsey Horberry. This particular course is something our 3t Energy Group clients have been asking for ever since the new standard was introduced and we are delighted to now offer this.
