Train for a new career offshore.

WITH record investment being pumped into the North Sea oil and gas sector, there's never been a better time to consider a career offshore.

Aberdeen-based Petrofac Training Services offer a range of courses for those new to the industry, as well as specialist training for experienced oil and gas professionals.

And there are current special offers available, including their best-ever deal for those looking to get in to the industry, with a saving of more than PS700.

Petrofac Training Services safety and survival manager Hugh Chisholm 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."

All personnel within the offshore oil and gas industry need to complete a Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training course (or BOSIET for short) - which is available at Petrofac Training Services.

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 Petrofac Training Services survival centre in Aberdeen, you can not only gain your BOSIET certificate but, with their 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 oil and gas.

And if you book the BOSIET survival course before the end of the year, Petrofac Training Services will give you the Minimum Industry Safety Training (MIST) for free and include VAT in the total PS599 price - saving more than PS700 on the usual fee.

Hugh added: "Our objective at Petrofac Training is to help train the workforce of tomorrow. We have a worldclass survival training facility here in Aberdeen and a breadth of courses on offer.

"We've been delivering offshore survival training for more than 30 years, with a strong focus on quality and consistency.

"The calibre and experience of our instructors is unparalleled - with some staff providing training for more than 20 years.

"Our experience allows us to offer rare insights and advice for those interested in a career offshore."
