Oil & Gas


The human resources challenges that have been experienced by the Australian Mining sector over the last 15 years are set to feature again in Oil & Gas.

Blue Tongue’s Oil & Gas Dual Trade E&I (controls) Up-skilling program has been built for the specific needs of the industry in the area of Electrical and Instrumentation Maintenance. We are partnering with reputable companies in the Oil & Gas sector to provide our clients workforce control, consistency and predictability allowing for optimal project delivery through the Dual Trade E&I (controls) Up-Skill program.

Whilst the need and availability of skilled labour fluctuates, the need to build and maintain a high performance work culture is constant. Our clients can leverage off our existing resources which allows them to have an immediate workforce planning capability.

In leveraging off what Blue Tongue have already invested in, trialled and tested, our clients save time, money and most importantly get better results.

Our team are passionate about offering a program that is state of the art, and leading edge for the Oil & Gas industry. We offer more than just training services and more than just recruitment/on-hire services, we offer our Clients;

- A total program which includes strategic recruitment, selection, employment, risk management, formal training (up-skilling), relocation and settlement, mentoring, performance management and workforce integration.

- A dual traded skilled worker that has a winning attitude, has sacrificed and committed, has been trained on state of the art systems and is productive and ready to join our clients business.

- A skilled person that is highly productive, has new skills, is career minded, has a great attitude and is not part of the same ‘revolving door’ culture that so often prevails when trades people ‘chase the dollar’.

Blue Tongue proudly partner with SWSI Tafe and SAGE to deliver our state of the art Electrical & Instrumentaation Control Upskilling Program.
