Prerequisites

Experienced oilfield workers may  have the opportunity to test-out of the RigPass program to obtain the Basin United endorsement. To attempt to test-out of Rig Pass without taking the course the worker must have previously:

  1. Worked a minimum of 6 months in the oilfield (2 years preferred)
  2. Completed an equivalent oil and gas orientation at any time

If you are unsure if you meet the test-out requirements then you should take the full course instead.

Test-Out Via Zoom Call Online

To test out in person, select a zoom test out appointment from the RigPass calendar. Prior to your appointment you must submit via email:

  1. Proof of previous training (such as an older RigPass card)
  2. Proof of oilfield experience such as time cards or pay stubs
  3. Drivers license
  4. A compliant, passport style photo

The instructor will verify testing compliance during the zoom call. The zoom call will be recorded and may be viewed by accrediting body or auditors.

Test-Out In-Person

To test out in person, select a test out appointment from the RigPass calendar. During your appointment you must bring:

  1. Proof of previous training (such as an older RigPass card)
  2. Proof of oilfield experience such as time cards or pay stubs
  3. Drivers license

After completing the test with a score of “excellent*” and paying the applicable fees, the test-out candidate will be entitled to a RigPass card with the Basin United endorsement. The test will be the same test given to those in the regular course and typically requires 20 to 90 minutes to complete. Candidates that are unable to score high enough on the test-out will be required to take the full RigPass course.

*Minimum score is set by the accrediting body and cannot be waived by the instructor.

Fees

Test out fee: $200 ea

Options

Testing out can be a convenient way for experienced oilfield workers to obtain their RigPass certification in San Antonio without the time needed to spend in the full course. Employees considering the test-out option must remember that passing the examination will be more challenging and procedures will be strictly enforced. Workers that have any doubt of their level of experience and training in oil and gas safety will be strongly encouraged to take or re-take the full orientation prior to testing.
