Instructor-Led Training


Northwest Houston Chamber of Commerce


Training courses are taught by professionals from the oil and gas industry with current knowledge and years of field experience. Courses allow for open discussion and ample interaction with instructors and fellow participants. Our curriculum combines lectures, classroom exercises, hands-on training, and field trips fostering an optimal learning experience.

Upon satisfactory completion of a course, you will receive a certificate from The University of Texas. Please note, however, that the schools are not for academic credit and are not part of a college degree program. Certain licensing agencies have approved PETEX courses for professional development credits for their members. Any of these courses can be held at a location of your choosing and we are happy to discuss customizing any of the courses according to your company-specific requirements.
