WE KNOW THE INDUSTRY. WE KNOW SUPPORT.
O&GA was founded to foster exceptional career and personal development and performance through education and networking. O&GA works to expose oil and energy administrative and support professionals to industry information and technologies to develop the necessary skills required for career advancement and to most effectively support the global and diverse oil and energy industry.
OIL & GAS ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION (OGAP)
This certification is the first of its kind for oil and energy industry administrative support professionals. Industry administrative professionals, employed by global industry giants, independent E&P companies as well as grass-root small businesses, created the Oil and Gas Administrative Professionals (OGAP) certification. The certification’s robust criterion is designed to measure and validate the OGAP’s proven understanding and demonstrated knowledge of the oil & energy industry and administrative support standards, add to the OGAP’s technical knowledge, and provide a venue that defines the OGAP’s value and improved marketability within the oil and energy industry. The program is endorsed by oil and industry experts and leaders from a cross-section of global oil and energy companies and organizations.
This certification demonstrates “industry” knowledge and is in no way specifically based on operations or policies of one particular oil and energy company or organization. “From the Reservoir to the Pump”.
QUARTERLY TRAINING AND FIELD TRIPS
Each quarter O&GA strives to invite industry technical leaders to teach our members and supporters about different aspects of the energy industry. Administrative Professionals learn about every aspect of the industry “from the reservoir to the pump” and also have opportunities to visit energy industry facilities such as refineries, offshore rigs, core labs, rock formations, industry museums, etc.
The training and field trips help the oil and gas administrative professional gain a better first hand understanding of the industry they support, assisting in their career development and helping to be more beneficial to their manager, team and company.
