All doctors joining the OGUK examining doctors list are required to undertake this preparatory training course, to ensure that examining doctors have sufficient knowledge of the UK offshore oil and gas industry to enable them to undertake OGUK medical examinations.
The virtual course provides an overview of the UK oil and gas industry, and information on what life and work is really like offshore, to enable examining doctors to gain an adequate understanding of the environment examinees work in.
