Technical Instructor - Houston, TX - May 1, 2021
Oil and Gas price dropped for many years. 5 layoffs across the board. I was retained until the 5th one because of Covid, then finally laid off. The day I was laid off there were three instructors including me that were laid off. We taught a total of 13 classes no one else did that were still there. I designed and priced a portable highly sophisticated simulator for the new NOV RCX BOP control system. Just prior to layoff, I sent almost everything to the shared drive so the remaining instructor could continue building the class I started and the simulator I designed and priced. He was given two weeks and made no progress and did not have the knowledge to continue what I started. So they lost quality, industrious instructors, innovative instructors, and must spend months or years to qualify for the 13 classes no one is qualified to teach.
