In these times, when the landscape is shifting constantly, we want to ensure that we are doing all that we can to keep you fully informed. It goes without saying that our number one priority is the health and well-being of our employees, the workforce, our training centre partners and the wider communities that we serve.
That is why we have taken the decision to close our offices around the world, for the time being. Our aim is to continue to offer you the service you require, while our employees work from home. As we keep in touch with you and post regular updates to our website and social media channels, please also use the appropriate email address in the ‘Contact Us’ section of this website to access our services.
OPITO continues to engage closely with its global network of training providers, operators, employees and the energy workforce to minimise and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 across our industry. Their health, safety and wellbeing remains our priority.
The majority of training centres are now open, operating with the appropriate physical distancing measures in place, in line with national, regional and local government guidelines. In exceptional circumstances, where delegates cannot access training through OPITO’s approved network of training providers, then support is available through OPITO’s certificate extension scheme.
OPITO will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 across the globe and will put appropriate measures in place, where required.
These are unprecedented times and we would like to thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and look after yourselves and your families.
John McDonald, CEO, OPITO
