Performance and long-term reliable operation of the vibrator units depend on the professional skills of the people who operate and maintain them. To secure longer service life and better performance of the equipment made by GEOSVIP or Western manufacturers, a decision was taken in 2000 to open up a special Training Centre where our customers' personnel can undergo training in vibrator maintenance and operation. The Centre is located at the GEOSVIP's manufacturing facility in Kimry, Tver Region, and employs qualified and experienced instructors many of whom have been trained and certified in the West.

Upon graduation the trainees qualify as:

The theory of vibrator operation and maintenance is studied at computerized classes while practical skills are perfected at the laboratories, workshops and testing range of the plant. The training classes last from 110 to 144 hours.
