Shell Development Oman launches Shell Professional Courses 2017
Apr 27, 2017
Shell Development Oman (SDO) has launched its Professional Courses for 2017 and has held two training courses this year as part of its ‘Training for Development’ social investment theme.
So far, the ‘Human Resources Management’ course has been held in Salalah and the ‘Marketing’ course has been held in Muscat. These courses were attended by 41 participants from government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the public sector and the private sector. The courses were facilitated by SDO and taught by training experts from the relevant fields.
Shell Professional Courses initiative includes a number of courses that target NGOs, the public sector, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and other members of the public. These courses have been designed to empower individuals with professional skills ranging from strategic thinking and leadership techniques to project management. In 2016, about 230 Omanis benefited from these training courses.
Commenting on this initiative, Muna Al Shukaili, GM of External Relations in Shell Development Oman stated, “We have been proudly running this initiative for more than 10 successful years and more than 3000 people benefited from this programme. Through our Shell Professional Courses, we are determined to instill in the youth in Oman the strength of knowledge and skills required to advance in their chosen fields and contribute positively to the national economy. This year, we have fully digitalized the registration process to make it easier for interested participants to register in the courses and to attach the required documents. They only need to visit our website and access Shell Professional Courses page from the homepage.”
Shell is committed to social development in Oman and aims to be a responsible corporate citizen of the Sultanate. Shell also implements extensive social investment programmes that contribute to sustainable development of the country.
