Training Services


Training is highly beneficial to organizations and employees resulting in better customer service, work safety and productivity and lowering employee turnover.

  • Customers receive TIEC’s “Certificate of Completion” with the number of training hours noted, there are currently no specific training certification standards required for the API Q1, Q2 or Internal Auditor Training programs.

TIEC offers its facilities as a venue for outside customers to host their own training and events.

Please note that all prices are subject to availability, quoted per room, per night and exclusive of hotel taxes. To take advantage of these savings, you must contact the hotel directly either via website or by phone per our HTCC Hotel Roster. TIEC and the Houston Training and Conference Center are unable to secure your reservations and cannot guarantee availability or prices.

In the event the hotel rooms or rates are unavailable, you may need to make your lodging arrangements with another hotel. TIEC and the Houston Training and Conference Center can only recommend our preferred hotelier.

Safety & Security
Safety and security are two very important considerations in choosing any facility. Although nothing can absolutely guarantee anyone’s personal safety or security, TIEC and the Houston Training and Conference Center can offer some peace of mind with our limited entry access into the facilities, and by requiring each guest to sign in before entering. The main building provides TIEC and the Houston Training and Conference Center with onsite building security staff, cameras, and controlled entry access before and after hours.
