About Petroleum Open Learning

OPITOs Petroleum Open Learning delivers open learning courses in Oil & Gas Well Technology, Petroleum Processing Technology and Oil and Gas Electrical Engineering Systems and Subsea Technology which are used by individuals and employers in over 45 countries.

In modular format candidates take responsibility for their own learning progress. The flexibility of setting the pace for self-development, which accommodates work/life balance, has proven to maximise the course effectiveness. By choosing when and where candidates study the traditional barriers to learning, such as time away from work, travel, subsistence and accommodation are removed and understanding and retention levels increased.

In addition to increasing knowledge, our technical courses (Oil and Gas Electrical Engineering Systems Series, Petroleum Processing Technology Series, Subsea Technology Series, Oil and Gas Well Technology Series) deliver, through a robust examination process, internationally recognised Level 3 Certificates accredited by City & Guilds.

The examinations process is managed by OPITO. It is tailored to suit the candidate’s needs and availability, and those of employers, whilst maintaining the robust integrity of the assessment process. Examinations can be taken at anytime and anywhere in the world whether you are on a production platform in the North Sea or on a FPSO off Nigeria or you can sit them at our offices in Portlethen, Aberdeen

Petroleum Open Learning courses have proven to deliver a low cost, highly effective training solution for individuals and provides real value for employers as they seek to develop the capability of their workforce.
