Kuwait – 16 August 2022 – Agility Logistics Parks (ALP), a leading owner and developer of warehousing and light industrial parks in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, joined Engineering Systems Group (ESG), a provider of integrated engineering solutions in Kuwait and the Middle East, in conducting intensive facility management training for Kuwaiti youth and university graduates.
ALP and ESG led the training program from May 29 to June 23. The training is part of an industry and work program organized by the Kuwaiti Youth Public Authority. ALP and ESG partnered to provide information on industrial zones, real estate, facility management, contract management and related skills.
The program included site visits to ALP’s industrial and warehousing facilities, where participants had a chance to study and analyze operations. Participating trainees were required to attend all the program’s lectures and workshops, and pass the final exam to receive facility management certification.
Nader Sakeen, CEO ALP Kuwait and GCC, said: “At Agility, we are committed to supporting the community, especially when it comes to educational opportunities, a key pillar of our sustainability program. We are pleased to work with the Youth Public Authority and Engineering Systems Group to provide this training program, which develops local talent and gives trainees the the opportunity to work within this field.”
Ahmed B. Al-Eisa Chairman and CEO of ESG, said: “This is the third year ESG participated in the training program. In Kuwait, especially after the pandemic, facility management has become even more important to governments as well as private sectors. Since facility management covers all aspects of a project from design to construction to handover, we know how important it is to build up skills in this area.”
The industry program is designed to expose the youth and graduates to various professional sectors. The full program, conducted by the Youth Public Authority, ended on the 4th of August.
