About the North Slope Training Cooperative (NSTC)

The North Slope Training Cooperative (NSTC) was founded in August 1997 when the BP and ARCO Field Managers on the North Slope signed the NSTC Health, Safety, and Environmental Guidelines.


Training began with the Unescorted Course as the mandatory, minimum requirement for all North Slope operating companies and contractor personnel. 


Today, NSTC is a collaborative training effort funded by BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc.; Caelus Energy Alaska, LLC; ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc.; Eni Petroleum Co Inc; ExxonMobil; and Hilcorp Alaska, LLC and supported by their contractor companies. 


Our objective is to develop and maintain high quality, standardized health, safety, and environmental training programs for our employee and contractor workforce on the North Slope and at industrial sites throughout Alaska. 


All workers need to be able to provide documentation (NSTC Card) showing completion of the Unescorted Course to receive their badges or when requested by their supervisors or project managers. 


If you need to attend the unescorted course to receive an NSTC card, please contact one of our licensed Third-Party Providers by clicking the link to the right.
