Basic Math was developed by ITC in Norway
ITC was established in 1987 and began developing courses in Offshore Drilling. Our aim was to educate our students giving them the training needed to prepare them for successfull careers in the Oil and Gas Industry on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Since then, we have the also designed and developed PetroTrainer, a PC-based, educational software for drilling. We use this application in all our petroleum courses. We at ITC have solid experience with the practical use and development of Computer Based Training programs, CBT, in most disciplines within the field of petroleum engineering.
ITC is considered today to be leading the way in the use of Information Technology in Offshore Drilling and Petroleum Technology courses. This is done with a combination of Computer Supported Training and use of Web classrooms.
Understanding Petroleum Technology, requires sound knowledge of mathematics. It was therefore natural to create a training module for mathematics. This module has since become Basic Math!
Why do we use Computer Based Training?
We use Basic Math and PetroTrainer Computer Based Training for all our students. Basic Math is used in the classroom, and for the students to use as a self-study tool for repetition.
