NCG is committed to providing world class engineering services to clients. This is achieved by retaining an experienced staff and providing industry specific training. Initially the training was provided for employees only. After a while it became apparent that our clients needed training for their employees as well. Some of the needed courses were being offered by other companies in remote locations. NCG has dramatically reduced the cost of training by offering the courses locally. In past few years NCG has gone on the road to provide programs on Enhanced Oil Recovery for the Department of Energy, University of Wyoming, Southwestern Petroleum Short Course , PEMEX and others.

In 2008 NCG recognized that there was a tremendous need for training related to electrical codes and how new regulations impact our clients. Several electrical schools were added to the course offerings. Now engineers, technicians and operators are traveling to Midland to receive training that is not offered elsewhere.

As the training needs change in the industry NCG will respond with relevant courses.
