OPITO, in partnership with RGU’s Oil and Gas Institute, has undertaken a UKCS Workforce Dynamics review to assess the industry skills requirements over the next 20 years. The review will be formally launched on May 10th at a business breakfast at RGU (Sir Ian Wood Building, Garthdee, Aberdeen).
From 26th March 2018 the BOSIET/FOET/HUET (with CA-EBS) training will include shallow water CA-EBS exercises. A set of FAQs have been developed to assist both employers and delegates with the changes to pre-training requirements and the necessary background information.
In response to user feedback, the TRAIN-R mobile app has been updated and now features offline capabilities. This allows users to access downloaded training records whilst offshore or in an area where internet access is limited. Click here to find out more.
