AMS Training and Practice

With the initial implementation of the Application Management System (AMS), training sessions and training aids were provided to new users of the system. These training aids, practices, and resources needed to complete training are still available.

PLEASE NOTE: The following Training Aids were developed during the initial implementation of AMS and may contain outdated information as enhancements were made to the system. The BC Oil and Gas Commission will be updating these training aids in the near future; and encourage system users to ream the AMS System User Manual.

System users may find it useful to read the Training Aids without completing the practice objectives. To view a specific Training Aid, users will be required to access the applicable training package and locate the training aid number within the package.

Practice files

As you go through the practice objectives, spatial data shapefiles and line lists may be required to complete some of the training exercises. Practices can be found within the Training Packages as follows:

  • AMS Spatial Training Package:
    • Practice 1 - Access AMS; Use the Application Analysis Tool and Create an Application
    • Practice 2 - Create an Amendment Application
  • AMS Introduction Training Package:

For those practice lessons that require practice spatial data; users can locate the zipped folder here. Click on the link to the spatial files. Use 'Save As' to save in your folder of choosing. Navigate to the folder and open the folder. Please note that some browsers, such as Chrome, download directly to the downloads folder and you will find your folder there. Make sure to extract the files from the folder.

Inside the folder there should be a series of zipped files named trainingaid01, trainingaid06 etc.

Please leave these files zipped. AMS accepts zipped shape files files only to its system. If the shape files are unzipped AMS will not accept them.

For those practice lessons that require a linelist, system users will find two linelists, both in excel, available for the practice lessons, here.
