Online oil and gas training courses

Our online oil and gas industry courses are provided in partnership with Vett & Viten Group, a leading publishing house, via the el-petroleum programme in offshore petroleum technology. 

el-petroleum is a unique e-learning experience that optimises learning and makes long-distance learning possible. A rich selection of dynamic graphics illustrates theory and increases understanding of central tasks.

Continual revisions ensure that the learning material is up to date.

Following and completing all the available programmes is equivalent to two years of higher education, but the flexible nature of el-petroleum allows you to study one or any selection of subjects of your choice to complement your own background and providing a useful addition to the professional development programme of EI's professional members working in this sector.
