For Employers

Helping you to keep your workforce safe and competent

Sea hero

By providing industry standardisation across a wide range of critical skills and disciplines, OPITO helps employers to continue to operate safely in the fast-changing world of global energy.

Working with employers and other key industry experts, we ensure that our Training and Assessment Standards, our Workplace Competence Assessment Standards and our portfolio of Global Qualifications remain relevant to your needs, and that you can demonstrate safety-critical competence throughout all levels of your organisation.

We’re owned by industry and work with you at all times

Our global standards and qualifications, along with the associated training and competence frameworks, are designed to help approved centres deliver expert learner training. This framework, when adopted by employers and operators, equips them to effectively address both existing and forthcoming skill requirements within the worldwide energy industry. 

All our Training and Assessment Standards and our Workplace Competence Assessment Standards are developed through consultation with our industry forums which comprise representatives from industry employers, subject matter experts, regulators, trade associations and workforce representatives.
