TVTC governor: Otqen training program a success

A summer training program conducted by the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) has attracted a large turnout of participants, spurring the TVTC to work on developing its next version.
On his recent visit to the Riyadh Technical College, TVTC Governor Ahmed Alfahaid said he received positive feedback from a number of trainees of the Otqen community training workshops, which he said reflects the program’s success.
Alfahaid said: “I visited Riyadh Technical College where five workshops in different specializations were being held. I am delighted and proud of our ambitious youth. The visit was positive and all suggestions to increase the number of courses have been accepted. The first phase of Otqen comprised six specializations, while the second phase — which will have ended this week — comprised 16 technical and vocational specializations for both males and females.”
He added: “Although these courses are being held in summer, we received more trainees than expected. We are now in the last week of Otqen and we are planning to take advantage of suggestions to improve the third phase.”
The number of applicants in the community program since the beginning of registrations in the second phase has reached over 14,700 — 48 percent males and 51 percent females.
Otqen provides 16 technical and vocational training courses held at the TVTC training units for people to improve their technical skills and help them with their daily needs.
A course about the maintenance of electronic devices has been taken by 2,398 trainees, proving to be the most popular program among men, while cosmology and hairdressing courses were taken by 1,765 female trainees. Meanwhile, the Photoshop and Illustrator program was attended by 1,643 trainees, the largest attendance comprising both men and women.
Registrations were made online on the TVTC website and open to applicants over the age of 15.​
