  1. Olawale Olapegba says:

    In my opinion, a firm’s calendar and budget on training are concluded before the end of the first quarter of that year. I would like to implore WBC to make an early and wide circulation of available O&G classes for necessary budget considerations and approvals by sponsors, especially to business interests that relate to government and regulatory environment.

    Thank you.
