PVD Technical Training and Certification Joint Stock Company (PVD Training) is a world leading provider of training and certification, manpower solutions and marine technical services mainly to oil and gas clients. Managing Director Bui Thanh Van explains the secrets behind the company’s success.

PVD Technical Training was founded in 2007 as a subsidiary of Petro Vietnam Drilling & Well Services Corporation (PV Drilling) and geologically originated from Vung Tau as an oil and gas hub. Located in Southern Vietnam, PVD Training has tremendously grown its business in three different categories and been expanding its services and offices across regions in the world.

Since our inception, we have been committed to empowering the oil and gas workforce and our ultimate quest is to have every oil and gas worker, no matter where in the world, trained to one global standard with diversified safety, technical and competency-based training courses provided in a variety of training methods. PVD Training is proud to be the first training centre in Vietnam which is accredited by IWCF (International Well Control Forum) and OPITO (Offshore Petroleum International Training Organization) for its training services. As a top training provider, we provide sufficient training for the well-trained personnel to best meet their job requirements in a timely and efficient manner, and to offer the most cost-effective manpower solution to oil and gas clients.

In addition to training and manpower, we offer our clients premium and cost-efficient technical services for their petroleum and marine demands. This includes the supply of equipment, site survey, inspection, maintenance and repair, certification for a range of safety equipments in compliance with international classification organisations such as ABS, Lloyds, DNV, BV and Vietnam Register. In terms of our ethos, we place high emphasis on honesty and quality when serving our clients. In essence, a successful company is a company of trust which guarantees its high-quality services and products to the client.

When selecting clients and staff, we approach people by listening, understanding their needs, as well as appreciating and respecting their values. In PVD Training, we see the potential and power inside each person to train them.

As such, we nourish and grow our talents and we always listen to our clients and know what they need. However, as safety specialist, we do our best to protect our employees and reduce as much damage as we can to our company and employees. Above all, we look for a service that benefits everyone.

When differentiating ourselves from our competitors, we ensure that our professional and diversified services cover a wide spectrum of the oil and gas industry. Our talented, yet both knowledgeable and skilful workforce are key to the service we provide. We are quick to perceive and act against the market, and we understand and satisfy our clients with the best services as we can.

In order to remain on the cutting edge of new developments in the industry, it is essential we never stop studying the market, surveying and understanding our clients’ needs. As a result, we possess a good foundation of knowledge, expertise and resources. We have the best and most creative people who always stay current with the trends of market and the changes in technology. Our clients find us the best place for consultancy and oil and gas services, and our outstanding leadership has seen us advance and drive for greater success.

Furthermore, as the legislation and law systems change, we are always committed to and abide by international and local laws regarding the running of our business. There are facilitations and restrictions caused by laws that would affect our business in terms of finance, accounting, administration as well as the method of doing business. However, we cleverly adapt these changes to utilise the good side of them and minimize the bad effects.

As for our sector, the oil and gas industry has been in a slump for a couple of years due to the fall of oil and gas prices. Many oil and gas companies went or are on the brink of bankruptcy, and many oil and gas operators and contractors had to stop their projects or try to cut cost in their needed services to the max. We are facing real hard challenges to maintain and boost our sales to clients in the current situation. In spite of these challenges, we are still very successful in deploying our integrated management system aligned with ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 which is awarded with Certificate of Credit Rating Appraise by the Enterprise Credit Rating Appraise Science Centre. We have also been designing, producing industrial equipment and appliance in which HUET Simulator is a great example.

Looking towards the future, we are growing quite substantially, and transcended beyond our traditional barriers by expanding our services across the world. Moving forward, we aim to be the most renowned and reliable provider of safety, emergency, vocational trainings, manpower and technical solutions to the oil and gas industry. We are currently developing our business in Southeast Asia countries and Middle East and initially rip our success in Myanmar, Brunei, Iran, etc. Watch this space!
