Did you know?

Becoming a certified PEC instructor offers an exceptional opportunity to grow your training business, advance your safety career, and make a difference in the safety of our industry’s workforce. Here’s why there’s never been a better time to be a PEC instructor:




High Demand for PEC Courses

There are now over 11,000 contractors in PEC’s system with hiring client mandates to complete one or more safety training courses. These contractors represent 2.4+ million workers who need seats in courses such as PEC Basic Orientation (SafeLandUSA™ accredited), PEC H2S Clear, or PEC Core Compliance in order to satisfy clients’ requirements and get the verifiable training credentials they need to go to work. We need instructors to help us meet this demand.

Rapid Growth

Just in 2018, over 143,000 students took PEC Basic Orientation, the industry’s leading SafeLandUSA™ accredited safety orientation course. From 2016 to 2018, the number of students taking Basic Orientation has increased nearly 274%! This type of growth translates to real opportunity for PEC instructors to grow their business.

Driving Business to You

In 2018 alone, PEC delivered over 21,000 contractor notification letters on behalf of over 250 hiring clients to help drive compliance within their contractor base – and we’ve delivered another 4,000 so far in 2019. These letters represent a critical tool that helps hiring clients enforce their compliance and training mandates as part of their total PEC contractor management solution, as well as drives contractors into the seats of certified PEC instructors.

Helping You Fill Seats

Our dedicated Training Compliance Department proactively contacts our hiring clients’ network of over 11,000 contractors to ensure their awareness of mandated training requirements. We’ve also begun piloting training compliance campaigns, designed to help connect contractors that have unmet training requirements with PEC training providers in their area. These value-added services, along with our online Find an Instructor tool, help instructors fill seats in their classes.

More Courses, More Business Opportunity

PEC continues to deliver new and updated courses to meet the evolving safety training needs of our industry and create new business opportunity for instructors:

PEC H2S Clear
H2S Clear, which meets ANSI’s Z390.1 standard as revised in 2017, has become the industry standard in H2S safety training. Nearly 60,000 students were certified in H2S Clear in 2018 – an increase of nearly 500% since 2016. In addition, the 2017 ANSI standard requires annual retraining to reinforce this life-critical training, creating ongoing business opportunity for instructors who are certified to teach this PEC course.

PEC Basic Pipeline
Basic Pipeline, a SafeLandUSA™ accredited course with additional content focused on specific hazards encountered when working in the midstream sector, was launched in late 2018. Several hiring clients have already chosen Basic Pipeline as their required contractor safety orientation, and, following our recent merger with Veriforce, a company with deep roots serving midstream operators, we expect to see demand for Basic Pipeline accelerate.

PEC Safe Supervisor
Safe Supervisor is a brand-new leadership course that provides current and potential safety leaders with foundational knowledge needed to perform at a supervisory level. It covers key aspects of a supervisor’s job, including continuous crew assessments, communicating effectively, implementing change, dealing with difficult workers, and mitigating hazards – making it an excellent tool for companies looking to develop future safety leaders.

Comprehensive, Up-to-Date Content

PEC sets the standard for high-quality, standardized safety orientation and training programs. Our experts ensure PEC courses are always up to date with the latest regulations, standards, and technologies that impact our industry, so PEC instructors can be confident they’re delivering comprehensive, current information to their students.

Career Development

We’ve partnered with Columbia Southern University (CSU), a leading online educator that offers associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in HSE. Our Basic Orientation and Core Compliance Train-the-Trainer courses count towards CSU credit hours and each PEC instructor is offered a 10% discount on tuition, as well as textbooks at no cost, providing a unique educational opportunity to help further instructors’ careers.

Top-Notch Customer Service

Our dedicated Training Support team is here to meet the unique needs of our instructor network and help keep the administration of PEC courses easy and efficient, allowing our instructors to stay focused on their students and their business.

Liability Protection

PEC provides limited Professional Liability Insurance (Errors and Omissions) to each authorized PEC instructor in the amount of $500,000 to assist in providing legal protection and reducing an instructor’s insurance costs.
