Get best-in-class industry training from your desktop.
Take advantage of our best-in-class natural gas industry training right from your desktop. With both á la carte and subscriptions available, you can buy just the courses you need, or subscribe to our entire library at an individual or organization-level.
The SGA Web Based Training (WBT) Library provides an opportunity for individuals to receive industrywide training from their desktop through the utilization of a Learning Management System (LMS) (the SGA Campus). Through multiple efforts beginning in late 2013, SGA repackaged previous Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) in to one “core” library of courses for individuals or companies to subscribe to through an annual subscription fee. This subscription fee allows the SGA to continually update existing material in courses as well as add new courses on an annual basis.
