Starting is easy! Simply browse our courses and select the ones you like from our course list. During the checkout process, you will be prompted to create your personal student account. If you already have an account, just log in and choose the courses from the list.

You can start your course right after you’ve made the successful payment. You will also receive lifetime access to your course. That means you can start the course later, take as many breaks as you like, and even retake the entire course in the future.

We packed all the essentials into powerful short courses. Each course takes between 1.5 and 4 hours. All our courses are 100% online, self-paced, and text based (including lots of pictures, graphs, and diagrams). No additional reading material is required


All our courses are designed for both students and non-students. Therefore, you need neither previous knowledge of petroleum and management concepts nor any formal application to start. All you need is a web browser and some motivation!




To gain your personal course certificate, you must complete an online course and a short quiz. All our course quizzes are multiple-choice. Don’t worry – you can retake the quiz several times free of charge. Also, there is no time limit for completing the course or the quiz. You will receive your certificate as a digital file (pdf). We do not send hard copies.

The Petroleum and Business Management Institute (PBMI) holds its distance learning programs to the same high standards that are applied by traditional educational institutions. Our certificates are therefore acknowledged and accepted by employers around the world. Please note that we do not award academic titles or degrees. However, most organizations recognize PBMI certificates as valid professional certificates. Make sure to add your achievements to your CV and your LinkedIn profile!
