BOSTON (PRWEB) July 23, 2005
International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) announced today that 24 trainees from the National Drilling Company (NDC) of Abu Dhabi successfully passed the National Drilling Company Assessment to become Material Supervisors and Technical Assistants. All graduates have been assigned to drilling rigs.
The training of Material Supervisors and Technical Assistants is an additional part of IHRDCÂs Accelerated Competency Based Drilling Technology Program that will prepare a minimum of 280 national trainees to meet world-class standards over a three-year period. The program includes short-term classroom instruction followed by rigorous on-the-job competency development training.
One of the main goals of IHRDCÂs training program is to prepare competent new national graduates to meet international standards in drilling industry jobs such as Floorhands, Material Supervisors, Radio Operators, Derrickmen, Assistant Drillers, and Trainee Drillers. In keeping with this goal, the program is built around deepening the work ethic and promoting a sense of pride among trainees.
IHRDCÂs Cairo Office, which specializes in the Competency Development Training of O&M personnel, is managing the NDC Project. Dr. Samy Salem, Operations Director for IHRDC, Cairo has stated: "From the beginning IHRDC intended to create a sense of pride in the trainees - to make them aware that, through training, they could become productive members of society. Trainees now realize that they are breaking new ground with their success, have developed new life-long skills and are leading the way for future citizens to enter the drilling fieldÂ.
IHRDCÂs Accelerated Competency Based Drilling Technology Program is integrated with the Competency Assurance Management System (CAMS) developed by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), of which NDC is a wholly owned subsidiary. IHRDCÂs training program is meeting or exceeding the learning outcomes defined in ADNOCÂs CAMS Project. Ayman Meneassy, Vice President, IHRDC-Cairo explained: ÂThe great success of this project is due to the vision of ADNOCÂs top managers. They are soundly committed to this effort and have given us tremendous support in our workÂ.
Headquartered in Boston with offices in Amsterdam, Cairo and Caracas, International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) is a privately owned company that has been providing highly regarded management, technical and operations training programs and competency-based e-Learning systems to the oil and gas industry for more than 35 years.
