Oman Air showcases training centre at fair
Muscat, April 26, 2011
Oman Air, the national airline of Oman, offered visitors to a job fair in Muscat a look at the training possibilities offered by its training and development center, classified among the top 10 training centres in the region by Iata.
Oman Air’s stand at the recently held Jobex Oman 2011 also showcased employment opportunities available with the airlines, the platinum sponsor of the exhibition.
Sheikh Ahmed Al- Nabhani, chief officer, Support Services at Oman Air, indicated that the airline is keen to sponsor various job fairs that are held in the country, and more so the Jobex, a premium event.
This decision stems from the deeply-rooted commitment by the company's management to provide as many career opportunities as possible, and absorb more qualified Omani candidates into the various fields of aviation, he said.
“We strongly believe that the qualified Omani cadres are our company’s permanent assets and the keystone in the progress of the company,” Al-Nabhani added.
“We are proud of their achievements that stem out of their dedication and sincerity towards their job, which help them achieve the anticipated goals of the company, in addition to achieving the individual objectives set by themselves.”
Muntaser AmBusaidi, HR manager Omanisation and information systems, said that in order to activate Omanisation, the company has established a special department that is entrusted with the preparation and implementation of the ambitious strategies for Omanisation in the various departments and divisions.
During the exhibition, HR staff introduced some of the strategies that are being implemented. On the top of the list is to start the qualifying process for the 20 diploma holders as traffic clerks, in addition to many other jobs in various fields.
Abdul Aziz bin Saud Al-Raisi, chief officer, Management Affairs said: “The fair was an opportunity for the training and development center in Oman Air to publicise the many training courses provided by the centre in various areas of customer service and aviation that have been certified by Iata.”
“We are very happy with the great attention paid by visitors to become acquainted with how best to develop their professional qualifications and channelise academic studies.”
“Thanks to the most recent achievement of Oman Air training center as a certified Iata center among the top ten training centers in the Middle East in 2011, Oman Air is getting the attention of many local and international companies that are on the lookout for a strategic partnership to take advantage of Oman Air Training Centre’s accumulated experiences in training,” he added.
“This we are sure will help in increasing the number of Omani staff working with Oman Air. We are geared to provide all possible training facilities for our Omani staff who can then take the initiative for a promising and bright future in the field of airline and aviation industry,” Al-Raisi concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
