“We have seen tremendous value from these courses and from having them both in College Station and within the regions of the Eastern Hemisphere. Every person who takes a CED course, without fail, tells me it is the best course they have ever taken. The CED training has helped create many opportunities for me within Halliburton. It has shown me, most of all, how much the company cares about employees’ growth and development.”
