Jakarta, Indonesia & College Station, Texas, USA – January 7th, 2019

Samson Tiara, Indonesia’s leading oil & gas safety training provider, today announced the signing of a Cooperative Learning Center Agreement with Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service, TEEX. 

TEEX, arguably one of the best-known emergency response training providers in the world, is home to some of the world’s top training facilities at the Emergency Services Training Institute (ESTI) in Texas, USA. These include the Brayton Fire Training Field, Disaster City® and the Emergency Operations Training Center, in College Station, Texas, as well as the Center for Marine Training and Safety in Galveston, Texas. 

Under this agreement, Samson Tiara becomes the first training provider to deliver TEEX accredited courses in Indonesia, and joins a small but elite group of training centres around the world to achieve TEEX accreditation.

Starting with accreditation for Basic Sea Survival, Confined Space Safety, Advanced Fire Fighting and Emergency Response Team Member, Samson Tiara will seek to expand the number of TEEX accredited courses over the coming months and years.

“This fantastic achievement is the culmination of years of work by Samson Tiara and its staff. We have long wanted to work with and be able to offer TEEX courses, and this is just the beginning of what we plan to offer.” Said Jim, Truesdell, Managing Director of Samson Tiara.

“To become a TEEX Cooperative Learning Centers (CLC) involves an intensive audit and inspection process, taking many weeks to complete following an initial site visit.” Said Brian Freeman, International Program Training Director for TEEX-ESTI. “Samson Tiara can be proud of their facility and the quality of their Instructors and technical staff. The curriculum they teach is excellent and we will continue to assist Samson Tiara in the development of more comprehensive courses as required.”
