Aramco to set up FM, hospitality training centre

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia, May 17, 2017

Saudi Aramco has signed an agreement with the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) and the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH) to set up a training centre for facilities and hospitality management.

The National Training Center for Facilities and Hospitality Management (NTCFHM) will aim to develop and prepare Saudi youth to work in the management and operation of public and private service facilities as well as the tourism and hotel sector jobs in the Kingdom.

Mohammad A Al Shammary, executive director of Community Services said: "We are proud to cooperate with TVTC and SCTH in this project which fosters localization of one of the Kingdom’s most promising sectors. In line with Saudi Vision 2030, the project aims to promote local citizens’ engagement in management and operation of facilities and hospitality, such as universities, governmental complexes, shopping malls, tourist resorts and hotels."

In line with the National Transformation Program 2020, NTCFHM will invest in the potential of the facilities and hospitality management sector to create jobs for highly-qualified nationals through provision of internationally accredited training programs with the target of reaching training capacity for 5,000 male and female trainees over the next four years.

The Center will also offer three training streams: Diploma Stream for high school graduates without prior practical experience; Specialized Programs Stream to meet companies’ requirements; and the Accreditation and Development Stream for employees. It will be managed by a Board of Trustees comprised of members representing the signatories to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). – TradeArabia News Service
