Due to a lack of previous experience and technical interfaces, Chris Staats was unable to transition to the offshore wind industry.
However, thanks to the help of Shirley Parsons Global Development Manager Ben Evans and Principal Consultant at Shirley Parsons Project Services Cameron Ecker, Chris has now been able to continue on the onboarding process of an offshore wind farm project in the US.
Shirley Parsons were able to provide the necessary training that helped to solve the technical problems Chris was facing as well as specific turbine training and continuous mentoring and guidance.
“From the moment I joined, I was paired with Ben Evans, who provided me with guidance and support throughout the onboarding process. Ben helped me learn the correct procedures of work and introduced me to key people within the organization.”
“He trained me on my specific job roles and helped me to translate the training to the port. The documents and training I received from Shirley Parsons have been invaluable, and I am grateful for their support."
