Oil & Gas
Oil and gas are the lifeblood of the global economy, and Scotland’s oil and gas industry will continue to energise the country’s future for many years to come. SQA’s qualifications for the oil and gas industry have been developed with the industry to ensure they are relevant, even in the face of the most hostile conditions.
Staff have to know exactly how to do their job properly and be able to rely on the person next to them to do the same. SQA qualifications are designed to ensure that everyone is fully competent and can prove their competence.
