Hereby we inform you that the SOTS Course Centre has discontinued providing safety and security courses from 01.06.2018.

We hope that our cooperation with you can continue in other course areas. SOTS Course Centre will continue with course activities within the disciplines Stavanger Offshore Technical College has. We would also like to note that Fagskolen Rogaland (, which has now become a separate school, has a close relationship with Stavanger Offshore Technical College.

We would like to thank you for good cooperation!
