Crisis Management training

If you are (deputy) Offshore Installation Manager (OIM), you are obliged  to be certified in crisis management. Depending on the area where you are employed, you may need different certificates.

If you work on the Dutch continental shelf, you need NOGEPA certificates*.
The training is obliged and needs to be refreshed after four years, a formal assessment is also obliged as of April 2017. Normally Unattended Installations (NUI) require another type of training, for which there is no formal assesment.

If you are employed in the UK continental shelf, you need OPITO certificates. The OPITO MEMIR training is not obliged and has no expiry date, however you need to do a formal OIM CE assessment every three years. Normally Unattended Installations (NUI) require a OIM CE NUI assesment.

If you are employed elsewhere, your best option is OPITO as those certificates are widely recognized throughout the industry.

Generally, you first follow an initial training, after which you can do a formal assessment.
