The Technical and Vocational Training Corporation and the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) have signed a memorandum of understanding, aiming to activate means of joint cooperation; achieving integration; and unifying efforts in the fields of development, training and employment; as well as achieving common benefits among both sides.
The memorandum of understanding was signed at the headquarters of the Technical Training Corporation in Riyadh by the Governor of the TVTC, Dr. Ahmed bin Fahd Al-Fahaid and the Governor of the SWCC, Engineer Abdullah bin Ibrahim Al-AbdulKarim. The signing was attended by a number of officials from the two sides.
The memorandum aims to enhance the use of the Saudi Water Academy and create prototypes for strategic partnership to prepare qualified national cadres. The cooperation will include supporting research and ingenuity via specialized centers, in addition to exchanging benefits of the two sides' training facilities.
For his part, Dr. Ahmed Bin Fahd Al-Fahaid stressed the importance of this memorandum with the Saline Water Conversion Corporation, which will contribute to strengthen joint cooperation to achieve the qualification and training of national cadres and create a work environment commensurate with the specialties and skills of the graduates of the TVTC’s programs, as well as providing specialized training programs corresponding to the needs of water sector’s fields of work.
For his part, Governor AbdulKarim stressed that the signing of this memorandum represents an enhancement of the efforts of "SWCC" in supporting the training requirements of the effective industrial and service sectors. This would culminate its desire to develop the prospects of scientific and cognitive cooperation in the fields of training and exchange of expertise in an effort to improve the potentialities of the people of Saudi society, to enable them to refine their abilities and develop their experiences, and to recruit them in all vital sectors. Governor AbdulKarim highlighted the non-recruitment-binding training program of newly graduated engineers launched by "SWCC" to qualify and train (300) engineers in its first phase. It bears part of the cost of the program for each trainee. In addition, SWCC implemented a number of training and development programs for a number of sectors, entities and national institutions, to contribute the advancement of economic growth.
It is worth mentioning that since last year, the TVTC has signed more than (35) memorandums of understanding with public and private sectors in the fields of training, employment and the provision of research and studies, in order to fulfill the needs of public and private enterprises with trained national manpower.
