Our Programmes

TPO will deliver a range of world-class, internationally accredited technical training programmes, tailored to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry.

We will provide a suite of industry-standard, competence-based training programmes which accelerate the development of skilled and competent technicians. This will include a variety of streams for High School leavers, diploma holders and upskilling for existing employees.

Our team of multinational industry training professionals have years of extensive oil and gas international best practice experience, working with some of the world’s largest energy sector companies.

Our programmes will equip Omani nationals and international delegates with the necessary skills and qualifications to enable them to make an immediate and valuable contribution in the workplace, with a vastly accelerated route to autonomy.

Our training programmes will offer recognised skills and professional development pathways to international standards of best practice. We will enable delegates to achieve:

NVQ level 1 – Foundation level skills, including language skills, technical maths, health and safety and business behaviours

Our foundation programme provides underpinning knowledge and skills which support delegates through their learning journey. This phase is focused on embedding language skills, technical maths, health and safety and workplace behaviours before progressing to the technical elements of the programme.

NVQ Level 2 – Performing Engineering Operations (PEO)

PEO is our introductory technical engineering programme for delegates starting out on their engineering career. It covers the basic concepts and hand-skills required to become competent engineering technicians within the oil and gas sector.

Production Training and Disciplines Specific Training - Level 3 Diploma / IVQ Level 3 / NVQ Level 3

As students progress from Level 2 to Level 3 they will specialise in their chosen discipline pathways;

  • Processing Operations
  • Electrical Maintenance
  • Mechanical Maintenance
  • Instrumentation Maintenance

Learning becomes more scenario based with the aim of building the students’ levels of independent thinking. As capability builds, the students will operate as teams and the plants will run as operating assets with regular work routines, monitoring schedules, scheduled maintenance activities etc.

All interventions with the live plants will be under the safe systems of work and permit system. This work based approach will build their Level 3 portfolio of evidence and accelerate their route to becoming independent operators once their on-job learning is evidenced at the asset.

All successful graduating students will exit TPO with an NVQ Level 1 in HSE, NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations (PEO), Level 3 Diploma, IVQ Level 3 and all the underpinning knowledge and skills acquisition needed for the NVQ Level 3, which will only require workplace task evidencing by the employer following graduation from TPO in order for students to gain the NVQ Level 3 qualification award.


Our programmes will offer maximum flexibility and alignment to individual requirements. Programme durations will run from 12, 18 and 24 months depending on the entry level of the delegates.
