How remote learning provides the flexibility and adaptability needed in the energy sector

The Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to two very large changes in energy training. There has been a marked increase in digitalisation over face-to-face courses, and the greater need for more adaptable learning material. Remote learning is poised to play a very important role in energy training, so it’s vital to get it right for the global energy sector.

If you have worked in the energy sector in any capacity over the last couple of years, you can't have avoided witnessing the sea change in in-work training. While a classroom environment is an effective way to share knowledge with a team, today’s highly competitive instant-messaging and instant gratification era of YouTube or Skillshare course tutorials needs to be acknowledged too. Social and collaborative learning from remote locations is gaining more and more popularity, and the energy sector is no exception.

With an increased hybrid working culture here to stay, employers in global energy have got to adapt their training culture for their employees, ensuring that the remote learning they deliver stays fit-for-purpose in a constantly evolving market.

Read on to find out more about two factors that are making remote learning for your employees as effective as possible.

Using modular delivery to ensure learning is adaptable and fit-for-purpose

Learners in the energy sector aren’t a homogenous group of like-minded individuals, with a singular collective purpose. We’re all complex in our own ways, bringing unique talents to the table, and each of us takes in information in different ways. Regardless of how relentless our project deadlines might be, we also learn at different paces, form our own understanding of complex issues and interpret results differently.

Project teams within energy companies are no different. They will have specific job – and therefore learning – requirements, so any module on offer to them must be adaptable to meet their specific business objectives.

This adaptability is something our Learning Hub at RPS does to great effect. Take, for example, our course on Offshore Wind in the UK. A typical module in one of our courses on Offshore Wind would have learning outcomes that cover several key areas such as Climate Change, the UK Offshore Wind Industry, Lifecycles of Wind Farms, etc. Any one of these modules can be picked by a learner without having to go through others that are less relevant. Tailored courses are also available; RPS has worked with organisations to create bespoke modules covering industry and region-specific or company/role-specific content. Using the example above, we could tailor-make a course that focuses solely on offshore wind in South Korea, for instance.

We also ensure that our coursework is constantly adapting and reacting to trends within the energy industry and addressing specific bottlenecks that our learners may encounter. Let’s stay with the offshore wind example, once again. As governments push to meet their net zero carbon ambitions, there has been a slow rate of approvals and permitting for projects, potentially placing these decarbonisation goals at risk. Whether caused by overcomplicated and lengthy permitting regimes, excessive red tape that may be a hangover from different sectors or disciplines, these bottlenecks are something to prepare for.

We now offer adaptable training modules that address this knowledge gap in consenting, with relevant course material that keeps abreast of industry developments.

Unbundling courses and re-building a course catalogue to be less linear and more modular is an approach that is here to stay. We’re proud to have been ahead of the game in remote learning, and we also have decades of experience in energy training to draw upon. We can set learners on specific energy learning pathways, providing them with a personalised learning experience that’s immersive and effective.
