SMS will provide training programs for the oil and gas industry in Houston. Those include courses approved by the American Petroleum Institute and OPITO, an organization that sets industry standards in emergency response, industry training and competence.

“We have provided educational services to the oil and gas industry for more than 30 years …. Through this acquisition, we have a great opportunity to expand our services in Houston, the hub of the oil and gas industry,” said SMS President Scott Domingue.

SMS also will begin offering major emergency management training and additional health, safety and environmental training in Houston.

The Houston training facility is in the Park 10 Business Center at 16810 Barker Springs Road.
