Ghana's Rigworld Training Center (RTC) has signed a partnership agreement with the Ecole Supérieure Polytechnique (ESP) of Senegal to improve the course content of the latter.
Under the partnership agreement, RTC will help raise the level of local skills of students in ESP to help them integrate well in the different industries in Senegal and across the world.
The signing of the agreement between the two educational institutions in West Africa is expected to offer African expertise to develop African competences to enable graduates to take up emerging jobs in the oil and gas and mining industries.
“This model of partnership between African institutions (Ghana and Senegal) comes at the right time to meet the challenge of vocational training adapted to new jobs emerging in oil & gas, mining etc.…,” a statement released by Daba DIENG, Rigworld Group West Africa Manager (French Territories) said.
Rigworld Training Center is a Ghanaian-owned, world-class, ISO 9001:2015 Oil and Gas accredited safety training centre that excels in providing a range of client-focused safety training services and products to the offshore and onshore oil and gas, maritime, underwater, construction, and general hazardous industries.
To extend its operations to other African countries, Rigworld Training Center recently opened a new branch in the Senegalese capital, Dakar.
The Ecole Supérieure Polytechnique is a public institution with a regional vocation, attached to the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar, Senegal.
The ESP's mission is to train both theoretically and practically which cover different technical and management fields.
It also offers training for people who want to improve themselves in their professional fields or learn new skills altogether.
