Fugro Opens Training Centre in Middle East - 03/06/2016


A branch of the Fugro Academy Training Centre has been established in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The inauguration ceremony on 25 May 2016 was led by Mr Samir Al Gharbi, GASOS general manager, who was presented with a plaque of appreciation by the Fugro management.

Located in the heart of the Middle East, the new Fugro Academy Training Centre alongside the ROV training centre in Abu Dhabi comprises three training suites, an engineering workshop, a simulation suite, a 7-function manipulator trainer and offices. It also has direct access to Fugro’s own quayside and equipment within the base area. Hundreds of Fugro staff from around the world, along with clients requiring specific training, are expected to visit the centre each year.

The Fugro Academy was created in 2006 as a global group-wide standardised training initiative to develop staff and support recruitment. It provides office-based and field staff with both instructor-led practical courses and online hosted e-learning modules on a variety of technical, HSE and business-related topics. To date the Fugro Academy has presented over 1,500 trainer-led courses, training more than 12,000 staff from the many countries where Fugro has a presence.
