Asry training boost for students
Manama, September 21, 2013
Asry, the leading ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, hosted a two-month training course for a group of students from Bahrain University.
As a part of its corporate social responsibility, Asry placed the summer programme trainees in different departments and workshops throughout the shipyard, according to their academic majors, in a move that aims to give them an opportunity to understand labour market requirements, and to raise their awareness about the importance of training.
The training programme was aimed at giving them an insight into the real work environment, and the challenges and needs of the maritime industrial sector, in general, and especially at Asry, which will qualify them to enrol in this industry, considered one of the pillars of the national economic development in Bahrain.
"Asry is keen to collaborate with national educational institutions throughout its corporate social responsibility initiatives, which aim to train and to qualify Bahrainis to work in this vital sector," chief executive Chris Potter said.
"Asry has designed the students' training programmes, to meet the requirements of their academic specialisations and practical training, and to qualify them to work in the maritime industry," he said.
"Asry opened its doors this summer to maximise the training courses merits, allowing full access to major departments and resources. The students were trained by department officials to perform duties of their designated jobs as full-time employees, to make them aware of the seriousness of their training.
"The students received job appraisal reports based on their performance, and statements that describe their job responsibilities and challenges they faced during their training," he said.-TradeArabia News Service
