NIIT Bahrain wins ISO quality certification
Manama, September 5, 2013
The National Institute for Industrial Training (NIIT) in Bahrain has won the ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality, making it the first industrial training institute in the kingdom to win the international recognition.
The standard provides guidance and tools for companies and organisations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customers' requirements, and that quality is consistently improved, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The institute has also secured another standard, OHSAS 18001:2007, on health and safety.
This standard looks closely into the readiness of training workshops and that of the staff against a set of high parameters.
"Equipped with modern facilities, the NIIT is a leader in its field, and provides high-quality training to staff of prominent companies in Bahrain," said NIIT assistant director Abdullah Mohammed.
"We are pleased to get this international recognition in quality, an issue that we take seriously," he added.
"This accomplishment sends a clear message to our clients - companies and individuals - reassuring them of our high standard of training, and that our performance and workshops are of high quality and in-line with the best international practices," added NIIT quality manager Jaber Asheeri.
All certificates granted by the NIIT are accredited by Edexcel - the highest accreditation body in Britain.
NIIT was established five years ago by a group of 53 business leaders in Bahrain to train Bahrainis to enhance their chances of employment.
NIIT worked with 800 companies in Bahrain that specialise in engineering, commerce, and industrial fields. NIIT's key clients included Asry, Alba and others.
Besides industrial training, NIIT also provides special training in management skills, computing and other office-related jobs. It also plans to provide training for females in the near future. – TradeArabia News Service
