Saudi Aramco opens construction training centre

RIYADH, December 21, 2017

State oil giant Saudi Aramco and The Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) have jointly inaugurated a training institute for construction sector in Al Nairiyah region of the kingdom.

A stand-alone nonprofit entity, the National Construction Training Center (NCTC) provides nine-month academic courses and vocational training in English. The facility boasts lecture halls and training workshops and can handle 600 trainees.

The NCTC started its operations back in September with around 240 Saudi trainees, and offers training in electrical technologies, welding, precision devices, pipe fitting, and occupational safety.

The training centre was inaugurated in the presence of Fahad Al Helal, the VP of Project Management  at Saudi Aramco and other senior executives and professionals from both parties and the training center.

Trainees will have the opportunity for on-the-job training with their companies.

The move is in line with Saudi Aramco’s efforts to support projects and initiatives that aim at equipping Saudi youth with the required knowledge and skills.

Ahmed Al Saadi, Saudi Aramco senior VP of Technical Services, said the training institute is a result of the partnership between Saudi Aramco and TVTC.

"The aim of this center is to train and develop young Saudis to meet demand for workers in the industrial construction field in the kingdom. NCTC will have a great impact on social and economic development," he noted.

Addressing the gathering, Al Helal said the strategic location of the center in Al Nairiyah will cater to the needs of many communities in the area.

In addition, it will serve several companies working with Saudi Aramco in projects around Al Nairiyah, he added.
 
Hasan Al Zahrani, the general manager of Downstream Project Management at Saudi Aramco, and also  the chairman of NCTC Board of Trustees, said: "This centre focuses on industrial construction, and is one of many partnerships between Saudi Aramco and several entities from government and private sectors."
 
The NCTC is aligned with the goal and objectives of Saudi Vision 2030, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
