There are around 300 students who have progressed to on-the-job training with ADNOC to enhance their skills, knowledge and competencies, supporting their integration into ADNOC teams and operations.

Dr Mohamed Taleb Al Menhali, manager of the ATA, said, “Our new on-the-job training programme, which is part of the academy’s broader two and a half year academic course, is a continuous 19 month training cycle in which trainees rotate between the Academy and various oil and gas locations onshore and offshore in the UAE. It provides our students with a real understanding of the working environment and an opportunity to learn from industry specialists.”

The ATA’s classroom, workshop and simulated trainings are designed to equip students with the wide range of operational, mechanical, electrical and instrumental skills needed to control oil and gas industry processes.

Established in 1978, the ATA has provided education and technical training to more than 5,000 UAE nationals, who, upon graduation, joined ADNOC’s workforce. The academy is holding an open day at which potential students can learn more about the courses and qualifications it offers. The academy is open for 17- to 25-year olds who are UAE nationals or are the son of a UAE mother and have finished Grade 12 and UAE military service.

Based in Al Shawamekh, Abu Dhabi, the ADNOC Technical Academy is a large purpose-built campus with educational, technical and recreational facilities, in addition to a hostel that houses more than 500 students.
