For learners

OPITO provides learners with access to quality assured training and skills that are designed to help them progress their career in the energy industry.

Training delivered against robust industry standards can be accessed through our network of OPITO approved centres, including key safety and survival courses, while vocational qualifications can be accessed via your existing employer. 

Learn new practical and vocational skills online and offline

We offer learners many different routes to skills development. From the safety critical BOSIET (Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training) and FOET (Further Offshore Emergency Training), through to advanced training in renewable offshore maintenance and operations, all OPITO approved centres worldwide provide access to a huge range of learning and training opportunities.

Importantly, we also help learners, and their employers, to keep track of successfully completed OPITO approved training or assessments. Records are maintained in The HUB, and you can access your OPITO training record via VantagePOB or using the free mobile app, OPITO TRAIN-R.

For those looking for certification validation, we also have the OPITO Certificate Validity Checker.
