RelyOn Nutec acquires Cresent and enters the digital learning market

The RelyOn Nutec Group (via P-Holding RelyOn Nutec A/S) is delighted to announce the acquisition of Red Oak Ltd. – trading as Cresent.

Over the last 37 years, Cresent has served the oil and gas industry with Control of Work, Health & Safety training, and consultancy. Cresent was the first company to introduce Computer Based Training (CBT) to deliver Health and Safety Training to the oil and gas industry, and also the first to introduce a Learning Management System (LMS) to store training records and enable reporting. Furthermore, Cresent also gained a strong reputation of being a highly experienced Control of Work supplier, with the electronic WorkSafe® solution.  

Cresent have been committed to making work safe and helping businesses become more efficient in their safety cultures through creating innovative, effective solutions for clients. Alongside this, RelyOn Nutec is the world leader in safety and survival training. This is predominantly delivered to the Oil & Gas, Maritime, Offshore Wind and High-Risk industries from our 34 training centres in 20 countries across the world.

Harry van der Vossen – Director of Digital Learning at RelyOn Nutec says; “We are extremely pleased to bring in the very strong capabilities and decades of expertise in Digital Learning and Control of Work from Cresent into the RelyOn Nutec organisation. Being the largest global provider of safety training for the oil and gas, offshore, maritime and renewables industries, we believe that adding Digital Learning capabilities, Course Catalogue and a Control of Work system and services to the RelyOn Nutec group, will be hugely important.” 

“This is our first proper step in to the digital training market and with the expertise from Cresent, going back over many years, we plan to take a significant market share in this area, but more importantly we see this as a true value-add for our world-wide client base. This will be the first time that we can deliver both the traditional hands-on training and the digital knowledge-based learning all from the same reliable source, supported by our global teams across the world.”

Torben Harring, Group CEO of RelyOn Nutec adds “Safety and survival training is our core business, but to be all-round successful, we need to have in-house capabilities to offer Digital Learning to complement, enhance and in some specific cases replace practical training.”

Jim Land, CEO of Cresent says; “I am really delighted to bring our digital content, customised learning development and control of work offering in to the global market leader in Safety Training. This is exactly the strong platform and corporate resilience that we need to truly flourish and offer the market a significant, reliable and superior product and service offering. With this new ownership we can demonstrate that the expertise, products, systems and services that have been built up over decades, is now part of a much bigger family, where it fits perfectly alongside it’s world-renowned practical face-to-face training offering. This powerful combination will be a force to be reckoned with.

Cresent would like to reassure our existing and future customers, that business will continue to thrive, with the same high level of commitment, excellence, and service as always.
