Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

Course Library

A complete library for all of your liquefied natural gas training needs.

OSI’s Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) library includes 11 courses based on current regulations, standards, and codes as outlined by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Course topics explore the unique characteristics and hazards associated with the liquefied natural gas industry and address procedures and knowledge necessary for safe plant operations, maintenance, instrumentation, and logistics. Additionally, each course has been reviewed by experts in the industry to ensure course accuracy and relevance.

Delivering these courses via ExxTend Learning™, OSI’s learning management system (LMS), makes employee training seamless. Our LMS allows you to customize learning experiences by personalizing curricula, adjusting testing parameters, and creating online training courses with site-specific content and graphics.
