THE NEW FACE OF THIEP: READY FOR THE NEW COURSES (ON-GOING PROCESS FOR APPROVAL BY TVTC)

The Technical Higher Institute for Engineering and Petroleum (THIEP) new building located in Dahran, KSA is all set for the new courses which are now in an on-going process for approval by Technical Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) such as Certificate in Rigging, Certificate in Pipefitting, Certificate in Welding, and Certificate in Scaffolding .

Each course is in 9-month training period covering 6 months in Technical education and 3 months in On-the-Job Training to companies. After finishing the certificate courses, they can work as rigger, pipefitter, welding technician and scaffold erector.

The opportunity today for these kinds of skills is definitely high within and outside Saudi Arabia. And it is a great privilege of THIEP to be approved by TVTC to cater the needs of both the government and the industry.

This is thru the leadership of Engr. Mustafa Al Ghazal, Dr. Ali Al Gadhib and Engr. Art Talon—the overall coordinator of the new courses.

With the set of competent and highly qualified trainers, these new courses will commence in September 2016. The successful graduates of these courses will be then certified by TVTC and Kangan Institute in Australia.
