Abu Dhabi Terminals launched its new training program aimed for UAE Nationals with high school diploma. The program, called Al Khayyal which means horse rider in Arabic, prepares young Emiratis for operational roles at Khalifa Port. Due to the company’s strong commitment to Emiratisation, a new batch of students is expected to start every month.
The two-month training program has been designed especially for UAE Nationals and trains them to become skilled operators for quay cranes and container handling equipment; both critical positions at Khalifa Port. Upon completion of the training the new graduates will start their role at the forefront of the maritime industry.
“Today’s semi-automated facility means that ADT is among the most high-tech companies in the UAE and our aim is to inspire UAE Nationals to consider a career in the maritime sector and understand the role the industry plays in the future growth of the Emirate,” said Eisa Hasan Al Marzouqi, Senior HR Director of Abu Dhabi Terminals.
“With horse riding being a big passion for me, I was immediately interested to join Al Khayyal training program. The challenge of learning how to operate this port equipment and handle containers really makes me feel that my job is close to my hobby. I look forward to complete the program.” said Mohammed Al Hosani, a 29 year old trainee.
