In energy, as in every sector, it is vital to keep learning, deepening knowledge, and developing new skills. Crystol Energy provides focused and effective training courses to help clients gain the understanding and expertise that they need.
Drawn from academia, industry and government, our coaches and instructors ensure that our courses balance the highest academic standards with hands-on practicality. This blend of strengths is simply unique.
We help governments to develop and build administrative capacity, whilst in the private sector we deliver courses that are fine-tuned to those with energy experience and those new to the field. For academic and training institutions, Crystol Energy helps to design and deliver energy-related courses.
Tailored to fit the background, expectations and experience of each client, our courses inspire active engagement, case study discussions and group work. The aim is always to convey a deep and lasting understanding of the topics and to keep clients up to date with the latest global developments in energy. Eminent guest speakers and enriching study tours specifically relevant to individual courses help to increase the effectiveness of our training.
Accommodating and accessible, our training can be held in central London and other major cities around the world, or wherever a client is located. They can also be delivered in Arabic, English, French, and Portuguese.
