About PDC 


Professional Development Courses project of SPE Nigeria was born from a courtesy visit to Petroleum Training Institute Warri (PTI)  where note was taken of the various specialized oil and gas training equipment provided by PTDF  and the need for optimal utilization of these equipment to provide continuous refresher courses to professionals in the industry and to also provide orientation courses for new hires or those aspiring for employment in very technical areas in the oil and gas industry.


The objective of this project, is  to create opportunities by  engaging seasoned professionals drawn from within the industry who are members of SPE, /partnering organizations or experts in their fields of endeavor with proven records of technical competence and who are willing to contribute man-hour for transfer of vital industry knowledge in developing our industry’s future workforce.
