Understanding the industry

Our oil and gas qualifications have been developed with the industry to ensure relevant skills, knowledge and competence. A number of SQA qualifications are offered in partnership with OPITO (for Upstream qualifications) and we have strong links with Cogent (for Downstream qualifications).

SQA qualifications can be delivered by approved colleges, training providers and employers.

How to become an approved SQA centre.

Create your own qualifications

We can work with you to develop a bespoke qualification designed to your requirements and for any occupational area or level. Your company would own the qualification.

You could also have the qualification credit rated onto the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) which allows benchmarking against international frameworks such as the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
