Kris has worked in the industry for over 15 years, starting in warehouse safety training within his home town of Northumberland. The majority of his experience, however, lies within offshore oil and gas competence lead programmes, with the last 12 years being spent in South East Asia, Australia, Scotland and the USA. Kris spent four years at the Johnson Space Centre in Houston, Texas, as an operational lead for the Hi-Con programme. As the first commercial offshore oil and gas service provider to operate at a NASA facility, Kris contributed heavily in the training of government employees to instruct offshore oil and gas programmes, gaining industry approved accreditations and contributing to ISO certifications. The highlight of the experience was being able to work with some of the most dynamic and innovative individuals within the NASA community, culminating in receiving an international OPITO award for Training Provider of the year in 2013. We are delighted that in 2015 Kris agreed to return back to the UK in order to take the new role of Training Centre Manager at Clyde Training Solutions.
