The WPCG prefers subcontractors to receive face-to-face training with a WPCG training provider. However, in exceptional circumstances when certain guidelines are followed, you can train your own subcontractors:
|WPCG Administration Approval (JulSen Consulting)||Receive approval through email that subcontractors can be trained||No training of subcontractors without prior written approval by WPCG Administration (JulSen Consulting)|
|Training of Subcontractors||At the time of training, the subcontractor is directly employed by your company to work for Oil company clients AND your company has a Service Agreement or Purchase Order in place with that subcontractor||Subcontractors cannot train their own subcontractors|
|Fee for training||No fee is charged||Subcontractors must not be charged for training|
|Location of Subcontractors||Regionally based subcontractors (i.e. in any area greater than 150km from a WPCG Training Venue)||Less than 150km from a WPCG Training Venue|
|Training method||Face-to-face using the Training Materials provided by WPCG Training Provider (JulSen Consulting)||Over the phone|
|Company Trainer||Must be employed by the Contractor||No subcontracting of Company Trainers|
|Online Assessment||Subcontractor must register and complete the online assessment to attain accreditation||Subcontractor is NOT WPCG accredited if they FAIL or do not complete the online assessment|
|WPCG Audit||WPCG retains the right to conduct audits as required to ensure that these guidelines are being followed|
To apply to train subcontractors, you must submit the following form in writing to email@example.com, each subcontractor’s address and the reason why your company wishes to train them.
