Startup online training platform,, the first peer-to-peer online training portal dedicated to the Oil and Gas industry calls for experienced Oil and Gas professionals to author, publish and sell their knowledge.

They aim to bridge the knowledge gap in the industry due to €œThe Big Crew Change€ by offering online video courses, webinars and live virtual classrooms that can be accessed anywhere, anytime.

Unemployed No More: Creates Opportunities for Oil & Gas Workers Gasoline may be volatile, but take a look at the job market for people who work in the oil and gas industry and you’ll see something that’s even more reactive to sparks (in the economy.) Over the past several months, hundreds of thousands of these oil and gas workers have been laid off, their terminations the result of falling oil prices which are dropping lower than they have in years.
Although this means lower gas prices for American consumers, at the time of this writing, this situation has left over 250,000 oil workers round the world without a job.
While this trend has many oil workers filing for unemployment for the first time in their lives and willing to find opportunities in other industries a new hope has crested the horizon. Even when a skilled professional is terminated, they retain their knowledge and expertise – a fact that Houston-based startup is leveraging to provide a means for these workers to continue supporting their families.
Petrolessons has created the world’s first portal through which skilled and experienced gas and oil professionals can package and sell their knowledge in the form of online video courses making 70% of net revenues. The concept brings together a number of timely factors, the most critical being that the current glut of layoffs is only a temporary matter. The eventual and largely inevitable future rise in oil prices will once again open up thousands of jobs within the industry. More important is the coming widening of the workforce gap as baby boomers who currently dominate the industry begin to retire.
According to drillinginfo, an estimated 71 percent of the workforce in oil and gas is 50 years of age or older. The downturn is just accelerating their exit. Something needs to be done to help workers create revenue streams and to help the industry bridge the skills gap! And that’s exactly what Petrolessons online portal is designed for.
From basics to advanced levels such as Safety, Leadership, IT and Industry-related software training, Subsea Engineering, Production, Reservoir, Wells, Refineries, Logistics, Communications and Project Management to name a few.
To ensure high-quality instruction, courses are vetted through peer review prior to publication, and a 30-day money-back guarantee is on the table to provide additional peace of mind.
