PDO indicators pact to train Omanis in safety field

The on-the-job coaching will be for two months with appropriate candidates studying important safety and security expertise, stated a press release.

On productive completion of the programme, they will take up employment with Security and Safety Services (SSS) as guards at government and business offices, and purchasing malls.

The coaching will be aimed at Omani males and females aged 18 to 30 with a higher college diploma or who have been educated up to grade 11 at least.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) underpinning the 3-year initiative was signed by PDO and SSS on Sunday at the Knowledge World complicated in Mina al Fahal.

Abdul Amir Abdul Hussein al Ajmi, PDO’s external affairs and worth creation director mentioned, “This is the largest one-off vocational training programme we have signed to date. We are determined to do all we can to support the government in providing job and training opportunities for young Omanis.”

He added, “We are targeting openings across all elements of the sultanate’s economy by joining forces with trusted partners, such as SSS, to develop employment.

The safety coaching is element of PDO’s National Objectives programme, which is targeting the creation of 17,000 job, coaching, redeployment, transfer and scholarship possibilities this year alone.

Brig Gen Rashid al Sidairi, SSS chief executive officer mentioned, “His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said has always stressed that the primary objective of development has always been the Omani citizen. Believing in the importance of this programme and the support it provides to jobseekers, the Security and Safety Services joins hands with PDO to provide career development training for young Omanis.”
