Achieving Technical Qualifications Approval

Training providers looking to apply for Technical Qualifications Approval are required   to follow our simple approval process which consists of the following stages:

Stage 1: Introductory Meeting

To obtain OPITO approval, each new applicant  must first attend a mandatory one day workshop at our Dubai office. The workshop is provided free of charge and covers the approval process and Technical Standards. 

Stage 2: Application and Desktop Review

OPITO will verify that the training provider has the required resources to conduct assessment and a management system in place that complies with our Technical Qualifications approval criteria. The desktop audit is conducted at an OPITO office.

Stage 3: Site Audit

An OPITO audit team will visit the training provider premises and audit the capability of the facility against the Technical Qualifications Criteria and relevant OPITO standards.
