If you want to get into the offshore game, you will almost certainly need to hold a dual electrical/instrumentation trade. Accommodation is limited on offshore facilities so electrical personnel are expected to also handle instrumentation. You’ll need some maintenance experience in your CV too – not just construction.
EEHA competencies covering installation, maintenance and inspection will be a mandatory requirement (Extend Training’s EEHA Install, Maintain and Inspect course covers these), and of course there is a whole bunch of other mandatory safety training for the offshore industry – BOSIET, FOET, HUET and so- on. Having those qualifications under your belt might give you a leg up over other applicants in a recruitment decision. Extend Training’s partners ERGT are able to offer these courses at their centres throughout Australia.
