(Image source: PDO)Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is sponsoring the vocational training of 600 young Omanis as part of its efforts to create more than 50,000 job opportunities in and outside the oil and gas industry between 2017 and 2019

The company has signed a MoU agreement with Oman Environmental Service Holding Company SAOC (Be’ah) to employ young Omanis upon their successful completion of a theoretical and practical training programme in the field of waste management, which will last from six to nine months.

The trainees will be offered full-time jobs in a wide range of positions including waste collection supervisors, transfer station supervisors and operators, landfill operators, supervisors and managers, and waste management drivers. The batch of trainees will include 350 high school certificate holders (grades 10-12) and 250 university degree holders.

Raoul Restucci, managing director of PDO, who signed the agreement with CEO of Be’ah Tariq Ali Al Amri, said, “As part of the concerted endeavour to conserve our environment, it is imperative that Oman builds up its capability in the collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste.”

“Those recruited will play a vital role as the Sultanate transitions to a greener economy,” Restucci added.

Al Amri, engineer, commented that the collaboration is set to create new opportunities for Omani graduates to develop their skills and knowledge in the waste management sector.
