OPITO, the global safety and skills organisation for the energy industry, has announced a new process for accessing Industry Standards and Qualifications information.
Last year OPITO launched The HUB – the new web-based, digital platform designed to improve communication and collaboration with Centres and Competence Management System (CMS) organisations. The HUB fundamentally changes the way OPITO and key stakeholders work together.
As OPITO continue to embrace the technology-led changes throughout the business and wider industry, and the utilisation of the new HUB system, there will also be changes to the way that portfolio information is accessed online.
From 19 May 2023 , OPITO Industry Standards and Qualifications will not be displayed on the corporate website and will be replaced with product overviews, providing an outline of the course, pre-requisites, validity, and target market only.
The key benefits of sharing Product portfolio information in this way are:
Ahead of this change OPITO has updated the Centre Network directory on the corporate website. Website users can now search for a Centre approved to deliver Global Qualifications and Workplace Competence Assessments, in addition to training and competence Industry Standards.
Centres to provide support
Going forward, many OPITO stakeholders such as employers and trade associations will be able to request and attain full product specifications directly from OPITO accredited Centres, rather than accessing the information from the OPITO website.
