Petroleum training

OGIM offers long duration courses (from 300 to 600 hours extended over 4 to 10 months) in the field of petroleum. These courses are meant for engineers, holders of master degrees, senior technicians and high school graduates. Some candidates are sponsored by petroleum companies and other institutions which cover their training fees, in particular candidates from African countries. Other candidates are sponsored by their countries’ ministries of energy.


Long duration courses are delivered in English or French. Training courses taught in English are imperatively preceded by an English language placement test followed by an intensive 180-hour English language course. Students may ultimately choose to take the official TOEIC Test. A minimum language proficiency level is a requirement for admission.

Furthermore, a language proficiency test in French maybe required.

Training Venues

Long duration courses take place mainly in Monastir. However, some courses, particularly training for petroleum operators, are delivered in Tataouine in partnership with the Tunisian Petroleum Institute (TPI).
