OPAL is responsible for helping to develop and maintain standards and qualifications in the Oman Oil and Gas industry. There are many providers of training in Oil and Gas related topic, how do you know that your training course is good enough? OPAL wants to help ensure that the training you or your employees receive is delivered and assessed to a recognised standard.
This is part of a wider reform the Ministry of Oil and Gas is undertaking to increase the standardisation and transferability of training in the Oman Oil and Gas Industry, which will improve the benefit of funded training to employers and individuals. This will enable OPAL to directt funding on the training areas of most impact and importance to the Oil and Gas industry and reduce wasted effort and spend on duplicated training of the employee.
We are consulting with industry stakeholders to provide Training Standards, for many categories of training carried out in the Oil and Gas industry. When these are confirmed, training providers can then match their courses to the Standard and can register on the Learning Hub, employers can be certain that their employees have received comprehensive training, and workers can transfer their course training between employers.
