MaerskDenmark-based provider of training courses for the oil and gas sector Maersk Training has announced to set up its first state-of-the-art teaching facility in the Middle East at Dubai World Central (DWC) in Dubai, UAE

The new training centre will offer offshore oil and gas industries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia a wide range of courses designed to develop regional talent and set new benchmarks in safety and operational performance.

Paolo Serra, vice-president of DWC Business Park, said, "The establishment of its centre marks an important milestone in our journey towards the creation of a well-rounded ecosystem for global businesses looking to get closer to their customers and expand their operational footprint."

Located at DWC’s Business Park enclave, the facility will deploy a combination of classroom-based techniques and simulator-based instruction. The centre is scheduled to begin its first training session from the third quarter of 2015.

Claus Bihl, CEO of Maersk Training, added, "Our new centre at DWC is an important expansion for Maersk Training. It will help us tap into one of the most economically vibrant regions in the world and support our global and regional customers.”

Established in 1978, Maersk Training has grown from providing training for companies within the Maersk Group to servicing individual students as well as major organisations within the global maritime, wind and energy sectors, noted Bihl.
