- PRESS RELEASE
AMMROC (Advanced Military Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul Center) and Turbine Services & Solutions (TS&S), both part of Mubadala Aerospace, have signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI) to sponsor training programs for UAE nationals.
As part of a three-year program, ADVETI and TS&S, the Middle East's leading service provider for industrial gas turbines and part of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies, will be providing technical training pertaining to gas turbine mechanical fitting, testing and inspection for ten students each year, with a new group having started in September this year and a further ten per year for the next two years. TS&S will also be sponsoring students throughout their three years in the program, which will include tailored content from TS&S. Upon graduation, students will obtain a mechanical diploma, and graduates will be offered placement and employment opportunities at TS&S.
Ahmed Al Moosa, CEO of TS&S, said: "The new training program demonstrates our commitment to ensure that young Emiratis will have the opportunity to contribute to a dynamic and growing industry. This partnership with ADVETI allows our organization to help create a training course that will equip graduates with the skills necessary to join a highly qualified work force that will contribute to TS&S' ambitious vision of becoming the preferred service provider for the local, regional and international oil & gas industries."
Under their agreement with ADVETI, AMMROC, the UAE's center of excellence for the delivery of military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services, will sponsor approximately 100 students per year, with the majority studying aviation maintenance for two years at ADVETI. Upon completion, they will enroll in the Al Ain International Aviation Academy (AAIAA) for a further year to receive a diploma, or a further two years to earn a higher diploma, with continued sponsorship, internships and On-the-Job Training (OJT). AMMROC will then provide all graduates with full time employment, with continued structured training and support as they embark on their careers, including soft skills training, technical training, coaching, mentoring, English language courses, corporate social responsibility, secondments and special assignments.
Commenting on this announcement, Colonel Fahad Al Shamsi, CEO of AMMROC, said, "Our partnership with ADVETI will greatly assist us in our drive to develop an ambitious group of UAE nationals equipped with the professional skills needed to meet our rapidly growing requirements, as AMMROC continues to expand its capacity as a military MRO service provider. We are proud to provide sponsorship and career opportunities that will help Emirati students reach their full potential and excel in the aerospace industry through practical training. I personally look forward to working with this future talent."
Eng. Abdul Rahman Al Hammadi, Director of Support Services-ADVETI, said: "ADVETI's mission is to empower Emirati's to lead the nation's future development through world-class, workplace-focused technical and vocational education and training. Our partnerships with AMMROC and TS&S will allow us to continue our work to serve the UAE and to train eager students for a dynamic and exciting career with Mubadala companies, in turn helping to support the local economy across the Emirate and the UAE."
