Basin United Training
Duration: 8 Hours
Registration includes a permanent card issued at completion of the course.
What should I bring? Make sure to bring identification, such as a driver’s license or passport. Please notify the training administrator if either of these are not available or you have questions about whether or not your identification is acceptable.
Is a test out available? A RigPass test out option is available (without Basin United) for qualified and experienced applicants. At a minimum all test-out candidates must possess 6 months of verifiable oilfield experience and hold a valid documented orientation through previous training. The test score required to pass the test-out is higher than the normal class. Those who do not achieve the higher test-out score are required to take the full course.
Is Basin United Fundamentals training online? Yes! Online training is available for those who are not able to come into the classroom. This is a virtual option to attend the RigPass course via your computer or zoom tablet. Remember to test your video, audio, and connection prior to attending the course.
Is there a test? The Basin United Fundamentals course ends with a 100-question test. Different versions of each test mean that you cannot look to your neighbor for answers. All students must achieve a good score of 80 points on the test to complete the course. Remember, however, that the test is not there to punish you but it is a tool to perfect student knowledge retention. Retakes may be allowed at the discretion of the instructor.
Who is Basin United Fundamentals for? Basin United Fundamental is for all workers and visitors to oil and gas facilities. Initially this course is intended for the Permian Basin with a nationwide rollout in the future. To learn more about the teams behind Basin United training check out www.basinunited.com
