I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the last 16 months and found them to be the best agency I have ever worked for.

Wellwise are very quick to respond with any query I may have whether it is invoicing, flight times, location, meet and greet etc etc etc!! I can pick up the phone anytime and get the answer I am looking for.

Wellwise is a part of my life - I have worked with Wellwise since day one and have seen the company grow, as I have grown with them.

Communication with operational management has become easy with access to them through the most professional, polite and cheery receptionists one possibly could hope to find on the other end of the phone.

I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the best part of 14 years. I value the support that is always there; I value their friendship and I look forward to the future and what it will offer as Wellwise continues to expand.

One of the main reasons I like working for Wellwise is the support you are given from the office. I receive a full job brief before travelling and they are always on the other end of the phone if you need anything day or night.

As a consultant to any company, its difficult to grasp the workloads, efforts or agendas of the company, but with Wellwise, one gets the impression of proactivity, not only as a competitor in the agency world but as a company striving for professional respect amongst its clients.

Unlike other agencies we do not post available jobs because of the fast turnover of our business. New jobs are available daily so register with us to ensure you are first to hear of the latest assignments and are ready to travel.

Please note that as of the 1st January, 2018, it is now a requirement to have a “Fit to Train” Certificate to undergo Offshore Survival Training.   If you work on land only you can ignore the remainder of this email.

When you telephone your medical centre to book your medical please ensure you request a combined OGUK Medical with “Fit to Train”, (together with a 10-point drug screen).   It will be cheaper for you to combine the first two rather than book them separately.   However, for contractors who need to undergo an Offshore Survival Refresher before their next medical is due (and you do not already have a “Fit to Train Certificate”) – you will need to undergo the training separately so please ensure you get your “Fit to Train” Certificate before you book your relevant Offshore Survival Course.

This training is mandatory, so if you do not acquire a “Fit to Train” certificate you will not be able to undertake Offshore Survival Training (OPITO BOSIET, FOET and HUET Courses).

Please email qhse@wellwisegroup.com if you have any queries or require additional information.

Why do you need to have a “Fit to Train” Certificate?

The OPITO BOSIET, FOET and HUET Courses are each changing and will now include in-water training with the CA-EBS. This new element requires additional medical tests for delegates, which will be captured via a "Fit to Train" certificate. This must be completed before you can partake in OPITO BOSIET, FOET or HUET Courses.  Delegates will need to complete a questionnaire asking about respiratory, ear, nose and throat checks and a lung health assessment which will be assessed in a face to face medical assessment with an Oil & Gas UK Examining Doctor.


The Fitness to train requirement has come about since the introduction of ‘wet’ CA-EBS training, previously delegates would complete dry training with the Compressed Air – Emergency Breather System in a classroom. The fitness to train relates to the risk of using compressed air breathing systems and is designed to ensure delegates are physically fit for the use of compressed air systems.

What does this mean?

Where there is history of a medical condition the doctor will perform a clinical examination and either issue a ‘fit to train’ certificate or an exemption at which point the trainee will be issued a medically ‘not fit to train’ certificate and will be excused in-water training.   In this case they can complete their survival training with “dry-training” for CA-EBS.

What does this cost?

(These costs have been quoted by Wrightway Medical Centre (other medical centres may have a different pricing structure).

OGUK (Medical to UKOOA standards)  = £118

Stand alone Fit to Train Certificate = £96

Combined OGUK Medical and Fit to Train Certificate = £165    (You will be issued with two certificates on completion).

10-point drug screen = £57.60
