OPITO marks move into China

International oil and gas skills organisation, OPITO has expanded its global footprint of accredited training providers with the approval of the first company in China.

North and south China has seen a significant rise in oil and gas activity in recent years with a growing workforce engaged in the country’s burgeoning energy sector. Estimates for oil potential in the South China Sea alone range from 700 million to 125 billion barrels. Exploiting the reserves is likely to see increasing demand for skilled and competent workers across the region.

The accreditation of Shenzhen Safeway Technology Service (SSTC) in Guangdong Province makes OPITO’s global safety and training standards available to the indigenous Chinese offshore oil and gas workforce for the first time.

SSTC has been initially approved to deliver the Authorised Gas Tester (AGT) Level 1 to 3 training and expects to conduct additional OPITO-approved courses going forward. The training provider is currently in the process of seeking OPITO accreditation for courses, including Major Emergency Management Initial Response, Offshore Installation Manager and Basic H2S training.
