CCED building future-ready national talent in Oman's oil and gas industry

CCED ORMEAs part of its strategy to empower national talent to excel in the oil and gas sector, CC Energy Development (CCED), has seen 95% of its maintenance technicians and production team acquire the Advanced Diploma in Oil & Gas Operations from City & Guilds in the UK 

This achievement emphasises CCED’s vision to build a world-class energy business in Oman that is dedicated to hiring and developing home-grown talent across all functions.

Talent acquisition and development is a translation of CCED’s forward-thinking strategy to build a highly skilled national workforce in the oil and gas industry,” said Walter Simpson, managing director of CCED.

“Effective planning and management to develop and most importantly, retain Omani talent is vital for long-term success in our rapidly evolving and fast-growing sector. We are determined to ensure that our team enjoys a rewarding career by developing the skillsets required to excel in everything they do.”

Speaking on this, Lindsay Ogilvy, business improvement manager, commented, “This particular learning journey began almost three years ago with a rigorous assessment of our technical trades and production process technicians.”

Ogilvy further added, “During the pandemic, we adapted our training delivery and incorporated evening online courses, which allow us to safely engage with a wider audience as our focus on learning delivery and people development expands to embrace other key roles. We want to encourage continuous learning and are developing out next programmes.”

The Advanced Diploma in Oil and Gas Operations is awarded by City & Guilds, UK’s leading provider of vocational qualifications; offering awards across a wide range of industries, and progressing from entry-level to the highest levels of professional achievement.
