This Competency in Fundamental E and I Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities course from the Engineering Institute of Technology  will focus on delivering the practical knowledge required for electrical and instrumentation (E&I) technicians, technologists, and engineers in the oil and gas industry. 

There is now an increasing need for higher technology methods of obtaining and processing oil and gas as it is a finite declining resource. As a result, the technical challenges of extracting oil and gas are becoming ever more demanding, with an increasing emphasis on more marginal fields and previously inaccessible zones such as deep oceans, Polar regions, Falkland Islands and Greenland.

During this course, we will cover a whole spectrum of activities ranging from basic electrical and instrumentation engineering, through to advanced practice in hazardous areas and data communications.

We will also take an in-depth look at a vast array of electrical and instrumentation equipment used in an oil and gas environment, as well as examples of practical treatment of electrical power systems and instrumentation within the oil, gas, petrochemical, and offshore industries.

While this course will cover the necessary theory, it is used in a practical context, giving you the tools required to ensure that the electrical and instrumentation hardware is delivering the results intended.


To obtain a certificate of completion for EIT’s Professional Certificate of Competency, students must achieve a 65% attendance rate at the live, online fortnightly webinars.  Detailed summaries/notes can be submitted in lieu of attendance.  In addition, students must obtain a mark of 60% in the set assignments which could take the form of written assignments and practical assignments. Students must also obtain a mark of 100% in quizzes.  If a student does not achieve the required score, they will be given an opportunity to resubmit the assignment to obtain the required score.


This qualification is officially accredited within the Australian Qualifications Framework by the Training Accreditation Council (TAC), and EIT is approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) for delivery by EIT in all Australian states. EIT delivers this program to students worldwide.
