right guys need some advice here, thinking of applying for jobs offshore but need the survival certs etc to do that, have seen some videos on youtube but they dont seem too bad but i know it will be different if/when i do it myself.
so how bad is the training course and for someone like me who gets travel sick. i know there are different types of off shore jobs but need the certs first

The actual course (BOSIET) is a piece of cake, you can't really "fail" it. Getting a Job on the rigs is an almost impossibility. If you know someone already there, this is your best bet. Only route is Agencies in Aberdeen, completely oversubscribed for Roustabout's. If you have a trade, you stand a slightly better chance. I am a domestic electrician and have been trying to get on as a roustabout for over a year now, with no luck. I've done my BOSIET.

A bit of advice, similar to the big house i advise you not to drop the bar of soap in the showers!
