The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) has represented the oil and gas industry worldwide, since 1940. IADC’s vision is for the drilling industry to be recognised for its crucial role in empowering the global economy and its high standard of safety, environmental stewardship, and operational efficiency.
IADC Gateway Programme is the first programme developed by IADC’s Workforce Development Committee. IADC’s Gateway Programme brings together industry and educational institutions to help the development of new employees to replace the retiring generation. This is intended to ensure that the new personnel will be well prepared for life on a rig, for contributing to the safety culture, and for achieving skill faster. MMH Academy has teamed up with Lone Star College, the largest higher education institution in Houston, Texas, which is nationally recognised, globally connected and locally focused.
