Two Academies Team Up

OGE Academy and SGS Academy agree to work together

From 15 to 16 August, a meeting was held in Oilteam Sochi office between OGE Academy executives and the representatives of international SGS group.

SGS is the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. Founded in 1878, SGS launched innovative agricultural inspection services. Since then, the company has grown to offer services for various industries including oil and gas.

Along with the inspection and certification services, SGS also delivers short courses focusing on management systems. This is done through a dedicated training center called SGS Academy. Just like OGE Academy, SGS Academy places great importance on the practical dimension of the learning process. This shared vision gave impetus to a business discussion, attended by OGE’s director Vladimir Lavrov, vice-principal Alyona Chvelyova and development manager Lidia Prokhoda-Shumskikh, while SGS was represented by SGS Academy manager Marina Ushankova and Eastern Europe region manager Konstantin Timoshechkin.

The meeting resulted in an agreement on joint promotion of both Academies’ training solutions in Russia and internationally. We are excited to welcome SGS to the family of our partners, and believe that this team-up opens new opportunities for both our companies.
