Required qualifications vary from field to field, but the following certifications are required for nearly every oilfield position:
  • Driver's License
  • WHMIS
  • First Aid
  • H2S Alive

Many employers will provide training to new employees, but if you already have the necessary tickets, companies will save themselves the expense by hiring you.
Obtaining any or all of the above tickets will greatly increase your chances of being hired, especially if you have no oilfield experience.

First aid certification can be obtained from several places, such as the Red Cross organization, or through St. John Ambulance.

An ATV Safety course may also be required if you're working in a field that makes extensive use of off-road vehicles, such as surveying or seismic exploration.

Many of the training courses and certifications that are required for work in this industry are not exclusive to the oil industry. Relevant courses can be taken in nearly any city. Check your local yellow pages for training centers.

If you live in Alberta, PITS (Petroleum Industry Training Service) offers extensive training in nearly every area of oilfield operations. PITS certificates are accepted throughout the oil industry.
