Vision

QFI will become the preferred awarding body covering qualifications for extractives, civil engineering, construction and the built environment industries.

 

Our key sectors:

Extractives industry

This consists of any operations that remove metals, mineral and aggregates from the earth. Examples of extractive processes include oil and gas extraction, mining, dredging and quarrying.

Civil engineering

This is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.

Construction sector

The construction sector is part of the goods-producing industries supersector group. The construction sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in the construction of buildings or engineering projects (e.g., highways and utility systems).

Built environment

In social science, the term built environment, or built world, refers to the man-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging in scale from buildings to parks. It has been defined as “the human-made space in which people live, work, and recreate on a day-to-day basis.”
