Hi All,
I'm based in Asia but looking to work in Norweigian sector.
Can anybody tell me if there are any training facilities available in Asia who provide OLF accredited offshore survival course and also perform Norweigian medical?
I rather not fly all the way to Aberdeen or to Norway to get them.

Thanks guys but as I noticed all the training facilities offer OPITO courses.
I have looked at all the sites before asking this question.
Looks like I will have to make that trip.

Well don't got to the one's that have you sitting in the helicopter ditching simulator whilst breathing via air fed oxygen mask until it's your turn to swim out.

Happened to my brother who was over in South Korea

First thing he did once he got back to work was demand that his company put him through the course again but in the UK as he felt the the training in Korea was a farce and should not have been opito accredited.

So they did.

Hey guys, I just wanted the OLF, Norweigian survival. I already have the OGUK, (UKOOA).
I am just waiting for a reply from CTSI in Manila.
I live in Japan and there are no internationally approved training facility in Japan or Korea.
BTW, the cheapest one for OGUK survival is IDEES in Subic, Philippines.
US$600 for BOSIET.
Thanks about the info on the Norweigian physical in Bangkok.
He does both UK and Norweigian. I am trying to get his mail address, does anyone know by chance?

Cheers, Jamesmc!!
For any of you guys in Asia trying to get OLF survival, no such place in Asia. I have looked into this further. Go to OLF web site, look under guidelines and click on list of training facilities. It will show you all the available locations, Norway, UK and Denmark.
Also with the medical. Go to Norwegian Maritime Directorate site and their is a list of doctors who perform the medical.
So, no more need for advises!! Thanks all for responses!!
Hope your year is a busy and prosperous one!! Cool

The rules have changed again,

Quote:
Communication received from OLF
“With reference to the "Mutual Agreement" between the United Kingdom (Oil & Gas UK), Denmark (NSOC-D), the Netherlands (NOGEPA) and Norway (OLF), regarding basic safety and emergency preparedness training there is, according to OLF's position, no requirement for maintaining the OLF approvals given to basic safety training centres located outside of Norway.

Only training centres located in Norway will maintain OLF approval.

The same applies for any approvals given by the Petroleums industry Center for Quality and Quality Assurance (PSK) performed on behalf of OLF.

Hence, the "Mutual Agreement" is fully recognized by OLF, and thus, the term "OLF approved safety training center" is from now on only applicable to a safety training center approved by OLF (or by PSK on behalf of OLF) located in Norway.”
