ESI to train Qtel staff
Doha , July 11, 2007
ESI International has been chosen to provide training for best practice in project management for Qatar Telecom (Qtel).
Coming hard on the heels of ESI's contract win from Dubai's Nakheel, their appointment by Qtel is a further indication of ESI's continued growth and influence throughout the Middle East.
'Qtel adds to our broad customer base in the telecoms industry and demonstrates the quality and flexibility of ESI's training. We offer customised programmes that are truly unique to each of our customers, which are delivered by instructors that have a solid understanding of the industry and of individual business needs,' said managing director of ESI International, EMEA, Alan Garvey.
Qtel selected ESI for its experience in corporate-wide project management training and its unrivalled reputation for quality in the performance improvement industry. ESI will train project managers with a wide range of skill sets and responsibility, ranging from managers with less than three years of experience on projects worth up to $2 million to experienced project managers directing projects worth more than $15 million.
During 2007, ESI expects to train more than 100 of Qtel's key project managers. Qtel is committed to growing its presence throughout the Middle East and internationally.
In 2004, Qtel led a consortium and won the public tender for the second mobile license in Oman, and launched its Nawras subsidiary services in March 2005, capturing more than 500,000 new customers (over 31 per cent of the Omani mobile market) in just over 20 months of operations.
During 2006, Qtel also grew its combined mobile customer base in Qatar and Oman to almost 1.5 million subscribers, an increase of over 55 per cent year-on-year.Trade Arabia News Service
