Prime Minister, Brigadier (Ret’d) Mark Phillips said the Government intends to continuously bolster investments in human capital to build local content capacity and foster a sustainable future for all Guyanese.
He made the remarks while attending the official launch of the US$20 million 3T EnerMech Guyana Training Centre of Excellence and graduation ceremony at the company’s headquarters in Lusignan, East Coast Demerara.
The Prime Minister noted that the launch of the petroleum training facility would enhance Guyana’s human resource development.
“A crucial factor to the success of our nation lies in our people. We must ensure that we utilise the benefits of the oil and gas sector to build a bright future for the next generation of Guyanese and beyond. To do that, we must undertake a culture of ownership, a culture where our local content – our people – can thrive and that includes within the workforce itself.”
The training facility, Guyana’s premier in-country, state-of-the-art facility, is a collaborative venture between 3t EnerMech, Orinduik Development Incorporated and Windsor Technologies.
Persons will be taught through blended learning software and technology and via fully immersive simulators for high-hazard activity learning.
Phillips lauded the drive and innovation of the facility and those responsible for its establishment.
“As the first entity with approval to deliver OPITO (Offshore Petroleum Industry Training Organisation)-accredited training to the oil and gas sector in Guyana, our human resources are now strengthened at a global standard to actively and competently participate in the building of this new and abundant area of the country. With an industry requiring high skills and knowledge, it is reassuring to know that these capacities can be imparted to our people without leaving their home soil.”
