New Maintenance Training Centre established in Northern Region of the Kingdom

Edutacs* in partnership with Festo Didactic** have successfully executed of establishing a new Maintenance Training Centre for one of the leading Institutes of the Kingdom. This Project was initiated to enhance the Institute training experience in accordance with plans of being a major vocational, test and certifying center in the Northern Region.

It’s better to see something once than hear it described a hundred times over.

This ancient truth is fully confirmed by modern psychological research. In fact, we can only add “see and participate”. Training simulators help to make the maintenance processes as clear as possible. Moreover, it allows to practice on the equipment real working situations. The goal of this Centre is to train students of the Northern region to the highest standards of work on the equipment, which they will use in the field in future. As a result, this approach provides cost savings, increased training efficiency, and allows more specialists to be trained on-the-fly.  

Glance on Project Objectives & Outcomes

Maintenance Common Core Program:

Training Program allows students to improve their practical skills and understand of electrical AC Motor system, power distribution system and hazard area lighting system. As well as practice safe working methods on electrical systems. Maintenance Common Core Program Training will include also important aspects of reading blueprints, schematics, and electrical symbols. Moreover, it will help to develop technical sketching and drawing performance of the students.

Located in remote area of Northern-Boarder region, Project execution has posed an actual challenge. To ensure successful completion our team presented pipeline tasks and functions in greater details. Edutacs has carefully set the project execution plan in five stages: Preliminary, Preparation, Workshops Readiness, Training and Project Completion & Delivery. Therefore, Edutacs measured adjusted training of the trainers, curriculum preparation assistance, and equipment final burn-Test to achieve the highest possible capacity. Above all, our team has carried the responsibility for all technical issues in regard of the project. Including blueprints, layouts, demolishing, construction, installations, configurations, applications of the proposed solutions. In other words, all process to ensure that the system works 100% efficiently without any operational or functional problems impacting system performance.
