Bahri has signed a training services agreement with the National Maritime Academy (NMA) to train and upskill the youth in Saudi Arabia in the maritime sector.

“The cooperation with NMA was driven by the academy’s experience in the field of human resources development,” said Bahri’s ceo Abdullah Aldubaikhi. “Bahri devotes considerable attention to training the Saudi youth and developing their skills and competencies in the maritime sector, with the aim of promoting the maritime sector in Saudi Arabia in line with the Saudi Vision 2030.”

Under the agreement, NMA will provide training programmes at its facilities across Saudi Arabia, calling upon instructional technology and equipment to cover the academic and vocational requirements for maritime trades.

According to the agreement, Bahri will commit to signing full-time employment contracts with the sponsored trainees before commencing the programme. The successful completion of the programmes will be a basic requirement for the employment contract between Bahri and the trainees.
