A long-running training project delivered in partnership with Qatar Petroleum resulted in more than 1200 Qatar Petroleum employees receiving Australian qualifications in technical trades including process plant operations, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and security.

We provided the quality frameworks, support for high-quality technical training, moderation and validation of trainee assessments, quality audits, and training and development for Qatar Petroleum teachers. Twice a year, we visited Doha to conduct moderation and validation of student assessments and to conduct a quality audit against the Australian Standards for Registered Training Organisations. If all units of competency were achieved, we issued an Australian qualification.

The success of this project led to us forming a partnership with Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education and the Qatar Independent Technical Schools to provide the same services to their students. That contract entailed development of staff and students in the Qatar Technical School for Boys and Qatar Technical School for Girls. Our role involved ensuring consistent, high-quality training and resources so students gain the preparatory skills and knowledge they need to pursue further studies in their chosen fields. Training was delivered in engineering, process plant operations, sampling and measurement, as well as public safety. We travelled to Qatar to verify student assessments and engage in industry and currency discussions.
