Velesto Drilling Academy Sdn. Bhd. (1042092-D) (VDA) was incorporated on 11 April 2013 with its principal activity business as a training provider. VDA offers innovative and engaging technical training programmes focusing on drilling in the oil and gas industry. As the pioneer dedicated drilling academy in Malaysia, VDA was established with the aim of addressing the shortage of local talents in the drilling industry.
Our strong relationship with PETRONAS’ INSTEP via the collaborative effort of VELESTO-INSTEP Drilling Academy, supported by some other accreditations and affiliations with professional bodies such as the IWCF and IADC, help us in offering industry standard courses that support career development.
VDA also acts as a platform to the larger Velesto Energy Group to train and develop skilled drilling personnel for business expansion, bridging the internal competency gaps and succession planning.
