Oil and Gas

Oil and Gas

Oil and gas are essential to the economy — not just in Scotland, but worldwide.

It is a demanding industry to work in, often in challenging and hazardous environments, and it is absolutely vital that everyone in the workforce is fully competent.

That’s why SQA and OPITO are working together to provide vocational qualifications that are trusted and recognised by the industry.

In Partnership with OPITO

OPITO is a unique industry-owned skills body. It exists solely to serve the global oil and gas sector to help improve the safety and skills of the workforce.

SQA and OPITO together provide the industry with a single source of world class vocational and globally recognised certification.

The OPITO–SQA partnership is meeting the demands of the industry by giving employers full ownership of the skills and knowledge needed to ensure competency in the workforce and effective business, safety, and environmental performance.
