Petrofac Training Services' training centre the first in Russia to offer OPITO accredited OERTM, CASS & Escape Chute training.

The company has achieved OPITO accreditation at its state-of-the-art base on Sakhalin Island, having continuously added to its offering at the STTC since it first opened its doors in 2008, initially providing technical and language training to meet the demands of the region’s rapidly expanding oil and gas workforce.

After significant investment in the STTC (Sakhalin Technical Training Centre) the hub now incorporates an offshore survival facility, fire ground and heli-deck, all of which allow Petrofac Training Services to provide OPITO-approved BOSIET, HUET, escape-chute and offshore emergency response team member courses.

The centre also delivers other HSE-related training courses such as working at height, scaffolding, rigging and slinging and fire fighting. A comprehensive range of Russian Federation Mandatory and Vocational Training courses such as industrial safety, labour protection and electrical safety is also provided at the facility.

As a result of the recent accreditation the facility is now the only one of its kind to be approved by OPITO, NEBOSH and City and Guilds. We also have our Russian educational license and manufacture approvals.
The STTC is the first training centre of its kind to gain OPITO accreditation and is staffed almost entirely by Russian nationals.
