Requirements for Offshore Jobs

  1. 1. Offshore Jobs <ul><li>Requirements </li></ul><ul><li>For Offshore Jobs </li></ul><ul><li>Brought to you by </li></ul><ul><li>http://OilGasInformation.com/ </li></ul>
  2. 2. Offshore job requirements <ul><li>Offshore jobs are not for everyone. Some requirements you need to pass when apply for a position on offshore drilling rigs. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Health Requirements <ul><li>The first and foremost requirement for working offshore is that you be in sound physical condition. You will be required to pass a thorough physical examination, including a spinal X- ray, before you can be employed. Answer all questions truthfully. You will also be given a drug screening. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Ages <ul><li>In most cases, you must be at least 18 to work offshore for a drilling contractor. You need only be 16 to sit for Coast Guard endorsements. The average age for offshore workers is 27. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Experiences <ul><li>The better your experience in your particular field or profession, the closer prospective employers will look you at. If you do not currently have any skill or experience that relates to the offshore industry, it does not mean you will not be hired. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Experiences <ul><li>There are many entry level positions available which require no previous offshore experience, these can be quickly learned. The most important thing is honesty. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Experiences <ul><li>Do not misrepresent yourself, your experience, or your skills. For example, do not claim to be a pipe welder if you’ve only had experience on plate. Or, do not claim to be a diesel mechanic if the only experience you have is doing minor tune-ups in a garage. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Education <ul><li>The majority of entry level rig jobs do not require a formal education as the employer is more interested in your ability to do your job well and learn quickly than in how many years you went to school. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Education <ul><li>Some jobs, such as a ballast controlman, mud engineer, etc., require at least a high school education. Other positions, as they get more complex, will naturally require higher levels of education. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Dependability <ul><li>One of the foremost concerns of offshore employers is dependability. Regardless of how good a hand is, he isn’t much good if he isn’t there! One of the quickest ways to lose your job is not to show up for crew change. When you hire on with a company, you become part of a team, and it is difficult to operate when any member of the team is not present. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Interest/Ambition <ul><li>Your interest and ambition will play a very important part in your getting and keeping a job, whether it be offshore or anywhere else. </li></ul><ul><li>Offshore work is an immensely interesting field, and interest in learning your job and others, as well, sparks ambition. Once you get in and get some basic experience you can move into many different areas involved in all phases of the industry. </li></ul>

  13. 13. Advancement and Training <ul><li>Advancement offshore will depend primarily on the company you work for and your particular abilities. All companies want you to advance. They want you to become better trained so you can take a more responsible position. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Advancement and Training <ul><li>Some companies have excellent training programs to help you move up the ladder with trainee slots for most positions. Other companies have only marginally efficient training programs, or none whatsoever. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Advancement and Training <ul><li>More and more offshore positions now require certification by a Coast Guard approved certification agency. In order to get these certifications, you will have to go to a specialty school. </li></ul>
