OPEC Systems is an Australian-owned Registered Training Organisation (RTO 41595).

David Kirkby, General Manager
David spent twenty years in the Australian Army, as Combat Engineer, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Manager and as a Warrant Officer Class 2, working at the School of Military Engineering as the Wing Sergeant Major.
Upon leaving Defence, David ran a Learning Development and Training Company, delivering EOD and other Public Sector courses, as well as Health and Safety. David then taught with Queensland TAFE, Brisbane North Institute and then went on to become Chief Executive Officer of a Registered Training Organisation.
David started at OPEC Systems in 2017 to work in Senior Management across Human Resources, Training and Change Management but also to build OPEC College. OPEC Systems has six Divisions working broadly and deeply across multiple sectors both in Australia and overseas, providing David with access to up-to-date information on what is happening in industry. He believes that this ‘finger on the pulse’ capability provides OPEC College with the edge on standalone RTOs.
