Since 1998 worked at RSC Energia, namely was engaged in the elaboration of flight documentation and the development test of the EVA equipment and procedures in conditions simulating weightlessness on the Selen stand and neutral buoyancy in CTC hydrodynamics laboratory; participated in the Service Module prelaunch processing on the EVA and teleoperation control mode issues; took part in the ISS crews training for EVA; supervised EVAs on the ISS at MCC; participated in the sea crew training for DM water landing; was a member of the maintenance team of DM in the landing area; was a member of the test team as a test worker in Orlan-M-GN; EMU spacesuits and a safety diver in the light-weight diving gear.
In spring 2000 Oleg Artemyev was given a positive medical comment (a permit to special trainings) at the meeting of Chief Medical Board (CBM).
On May 29, 2003 at the meeting of the Interdepartmental Commission for cosmonaut selection he was enlisted in the cosmonaut detachment to pass general space training (GST).
At a period of June 16, 2003 to June 28, 2005 Artemyev passed general space training with an excellent mark.
On July 5, 2005 at the meeting of the interdepartmental Qualification Commission (IDQC) he was qualified as a cosmonaut-researcher.
On January 29-31, 2006 he as commander of the preliminary crew together Michael Barrat and Sandra Magnus (they both are the U.S. astronauts) participated in a two-day examination for survivability in the deserted area in case of emergency landing of the descent module.
The examination took place in the forest near Moscow.
At a period of June 2-10, 2006 Oleg Artemyev passed training in Sevastopol (the Ukraine) for operations in case of the descent module off-nominal water landing within the preliminary crew together with Yury Lonchakov and Oleg Skripochka.
At a period of January 16-27, 2007 in the forest area 30 km from Moscow he participated in trainings for survivability within the preliminary crew together with Charles Simony (USA) and Sergei Revin.
On November 15-29, 2007 he took part in a 14-day check experiment under the program for MARS-500 experiment.
In 2008 Oleg Artemyev was engaged in the complete cycle of altitude tests of Orlan-MK spacesuit at OAO Zvezda and EF1068.
At a period of June 25 - July 9, 2008 he took part in a 14-day technical experiment under the program for MARS-500 experiment.
On March 31 - July 14, 2009 he participated in a 105-day preparatory experiment under the program for MARS-500 experiment.
In 2010-2011 Artemiev as the descent module operator provided prelaunch processing MTV Soyuz No. 701 and No. 231.
On October 12, 2012 the Interdepartmental Commission for selection of cosmonauts and their assignment to the crews of the manned vehicles and stations approved his certification as a test cosmonaut of S.P. Korolev OAO RSC Energia.
In execution of the Roscosmos Order to create a single cosmonaut detachment he left RSC Energia. On January 22, 2011 by Order of Yu.A. Gagarin CTC NII Head he was enlisted in Yu.A. Gagarin CTC NII detachment and appointed to a post of a test cosmonaut.

From September 2011 through September 2013 he underwent training being a member of the backup crew of ISS-37/38 as a flight engineer of the manned spacecraft Soyuz TMA-M and a flight engineer ot the ISS.
From September 2013 through March 2014 he trained for a space mission being a member of the main crew of ISS-39/40 as a flight engineer of the manned spacecraft Soyuz TMA-M and a flight engineer of the ISS.
He flew his first space mission from March 26 through September 11, 2014 as flight engineer of Soyuz TMA-12M and ISS-39/40 together with Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov and NASA astronaut Steven Swanson.
During the mission he made two spacewalks with the total duration of 12 hours 33 minutes.
The mission duration was 169 days 05 hours and 05 minutes.
On September 12, 2014 he took part in experimental studies in the interest of interplanetary missions and exploration of the planets of the solar system, within the framework of which he tested manual controlled descent from orbit onto the surface of ‘another planet’ in the centrifuge CF-18. On September 15, working in a specialized training facility Vykhod-2 he performed typical operations involved in a space-suited egress onto the simulated surface of ‘another planet’ and working on it. In addition to this, trials were conducted of an operation to control the virtual model of a transportation vehicle and move in it over the ‘Martian surface’ along a certain trajectory.
In July 2015, together with a team of employees of the Cosmonaut Training Center (CTC) he took part in preparations for US experiment NEEMO 20. He worked on the experiment together with an instructor in extravehicular activities at CTC and was included in the operations control team, he also made an orientation dive to the location where the underwater laboratory Aquarius is installed.
In November 2016 together with Anton Shkaplerov, Sergei Kud-Sverchkov, Andrei Fedyaev, took part in training sessions to rehearse crew actions in case of emergency landing in mountainous terrain. The training sessions took place in Tuapse district of Krasnodar province.
On February 7 – 9, 2017, as a member of a notional crew together with Sergei Prokopiev and Andrew Feustel, he underwent a three-day integrated training in ‘winter survival’ – the actions of the spacecraft crew after landing in marshy and wooded country in winter.
