Plan To Train Young Omanis Drawn Up


Hamed bin Khamis Al Amri, Technical Education and Vocational Training Under-secretary at the ministry, added more than 51,000 job opportunities were available for nationals in various technical and administrative fields. He also noted that 95 per cent of the ministry’s training programmes were conducted within the Sultanate. Only for training in ‘rare professions’ were Omani youths sent abroad, “because of lack of such specialised institutes in the country,” he added.

Amri was speaking to reporters after the government signed 15 agreements, worth a total RO2.3 million, with local institutes to train and employ 770 nationals. They will be trained as drivers of heavy equipment, in sales, marketing, distribution and engineering drawing and for jobs in hotels and the telecommunications industry. The deals, signed for the government by Manpower Minister Dr Juma bin Ali bin Juma, were concluded as part of the ministry’s Omanisation plans for the private sector.
