Industry Standards Approval

Training providers worldwide train delegates to OPITO Industry Standards, ensuring that each member of staff within the oil and gas industry has the knowledge and competence to work on and offshore.

Training providers apply for approval to deliver training in line with OPITO Industry Standards - the approval procedure and monitoring activity is a robust process and ensures that training is safe and quality assured with competence based, consistent outcomes.

The Industry Standards approval process consists of three stages:

Stage 1: Attend a one day workshop – The one day workshop covers the approval process and the detailed specifics of the approval criteria and standards. There is no charge to participate in a workshop.

Stage 2: Application and desktop submission – This process ensures that the training provider has the required resources to deliver training and/or assessment and a management system in place that complies with the OPITO approval criteria.

Stage 3: An onsite audit – An OPITO auditor will visit the training provider’s premises and observe training and/or assessments being carried out against the relevant OPITO standard.

For further information please select the relevant region below and download the Approval Guides and Application Forms, or contact one of the regional offices directly for assistance.

Following successful participation in the approvals process, training providers are awarded individual approval for the specified Industry Standards and can register delegates in Central Register.
