Train for a brighter future; ADVERTISING FEATURE Petrofac - leading training provider to the North Sea oil and gas industry.

FOR anyone living in a recession-hit area of the country and struggling to find a job, it might be difficult to imagine that there are parts of the UK economy that are booming.

But new figures from Oil and Gas UK show that investment in the North Sea sector will reach a record PS13.5billion this year, keeping more than 450,000 jobs in the UK.

Hugh Chisholm is safety and survival manager with leading training provider Petrofac Training Services.

He said: "Whether you are looking for a career change or simply better prospects, the current boom in North Sea oil and gas, combined with significant skills shortages, make the North Sea an attractive career option for people who can show they have suitable training and experience."

A combination of new oil and gas exploration licences being awarded by the Government and tax changes encouraging new investment has led to money being pumped into new offshore projects. That's created demand for people with the right skills in an already stretched North Sea jobs market.

Petrofac Training Services are helping people improve their career chances with a specialised course geared to working in oil and gas.

The Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training course, or BOSIET for short, is a requirement for all personnel within the offshore oil and gas industry.

The course teaches a range of essential skills for working offshore, including helicopter safety and escape, emergency first aid, sea survival, fire fighting and lifeboat training.

Through the Petrofac Training Services survival centre in Aberdeen you can not only gain your BOSIET certificate, but with their tailored Survival+ package, you will also receive a free industry overview, recommended sites to list your CV on, information on job roles and hot leads on who is recruiting in the oil and gas sector.

In short, you'll get everything you will need to stand out in the job market and get equipped for a career in the oil and gas industry.

Hugh added: "Our objective at Petrofac Training is to help train the workforce of tomorrow.

"We have more than 30 years of experience in the industry and can offer rare insights and advice for those interested in a career offshore."
