The qualifications you need to work on the oil rigs will depend on the job that you apply for. Some will need you to be highly qualified but in some cases there will not be the need to be any more qualified to work on a rig than it would for you to do the same sort of jobs on land.

An example of this will be a welder. As long as you had welder’s qualifications you will be able to apply. If it was for basic jobs that would not require qualifications anywhere else they will not be needed for the oil rigs. It is not only job specific qualifications that might be needed but some posts will require you to be registered with an organization and have a license.

As so much of the industry is machinery based there will be the need to be able to use them and plenty of places will train you to the standard needed. It is not just the actual oil extraction that is carried out. There will also be the need for caterers and office staff for example.

While training and educational qualifications are important and necessary there will also be personal qualifications that you will need. This sort of job will not suit everyone and in order to work on the oil rigs you will need to be prepared for hard work. It is a manual job so you will need to be strong and able to deal with problems in difficult circumstances. You will be away from home for long periods of time and often have to go offshore at short notice. It takes a special sort of person to be able to make a career on the rigs.

One does not need to a formal qualification course to work on oil rigs. However one needs to have grades 1-3 in subjects like Mathematics and Science. The minimum requirement is regularly updated on the Cogent and Engineering Construction Industry Training Board website. The minimum age requirement for this job is 18 years although some jobs could be available for above 16 year olds. The minimum height requirement is 5 feet 5 inches. One needs to clear a medical examination before being hired for this job since physical strength is a priority for this kind of work. Experience in shipbuilding or Engineering as well as geology may also prove useful. So one can start off a career in this field without a formal academic qualification or experience since training is provided on these jobs.
