Royal Commission institutes join SAP program
Riyadh, June 17, 2014
The Royal Commission Yanbu Colleges and Institutes has joined SAP’s Dual Study Education Program, thus becoming the first first higher education institute to join the program in the kingdom.
SAP’s Dual Study Program, run by the SAP Training and Development Institute, provides students with an interwoven curriculum and work experience that prepares them for life after graduation.
The two-year-long program has three key blocks: technical and soft skill SAP courses; certifications in technical, functional, or business tracks; and on-the-job internship placement for three-to-six months that connects students with SAP’s customers and ecosystem partners. Following successful completion of the SAP Dual Study Program, students graduate as SAP Associate Consultants.
The partnership was marked by a signing ceremony in which teams led by Dr Ahmed Dabroom, director General, Royal Commission Yanbu Colleges and Institutes; and Ahmed Al Faifi, managing director, SAP Saudi Arabia, too part.
The Royal Commission at Yanbu was established in the 1980s to provide preparation to Saudi students for middle- and higher-level career positions in industry, commerce, and government occupations, by providing appropriate knowledge and skills in all programs offered.
The higher education institute includes Yanbu Industrial College, Yanbu University College, and the Yanbu Technical Institute. - TradeArabia News Service
