So what is the price of Offshore training courses these days in the UK?
We phoned and emailed the UK based offshore training companies to get their prices of BOSIET, MIST and OGUK medicals. Here it is.
The most cost effective solution is laid out for you below this table.
Let’s figure out how you would book it to get the best price.

The MIST can be done online now, and for under £60 compared to £400 like the cost of doing it in the classroom. Maybe you lose a little education from the instructors who talk it over in the classroom, but regarding saving money, go online.

If you go with our above option, then you can go with our recommended OGUK medical provider in Aberdeen, they are nice people, help you out last minute if they can and they are bang in the middle of Aberdeen city centre so you can wander about town after.
You will find links and map-links for all the companies that we mention so you can click through and check yourself. This is our price breakdown from last year.
One big change is that AIS is merging with Survivex and their prices are probably merging too, I imagine their booking system will combine also.
