SEHAI granted accreditation by Japanese engineering college

RIYADH: The Saudi Electronics and Home Appliances Institute (SEHAI) in Diriyah in the Saudi capital has been granted accreditation by Japan’s Nippon Engineering College of Hachioji (NEEC).
“The SEHAI curricula have met the accreditation requirements set forth by the NEEC,” Fahad S. Al-Harbi, SEHAI director, told Arab News recently.
NEEC is one of the most prominent Japanese technical colleges, and operates under the Katayanagi Institute, which was founded in 1947.
SEHAI’s curricula include assessments of the school facilities, operating units, and training program, among others considerations. The accreditation awarded by the Japanese academic body is the first of its kind for a Saudi vocational training institute.
SEHAI is a Saudi-Japanese joint venture whose aim is to help create new technical job opportunities in electronics, office equipment, home appliances and air conditioning.
“SEHAI symbolizes a strategic partnership between the Kingdom and Japan through its two-year course under the supervision of the Technical Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC),” Al-Harbi said.
He added that SEHAI has consistently been contributing to the development of human resources in the Kingdom and to the creation of employment opportunities among the Saudi youth.
Al-Harbi added that the training institute has been supported by both the Saudi and Japanese governments, local distributors, and electronics and appliances manufacturers including Daikin, Fujitsu, Hitachi, JVC, Kenwood, Konica, Panasonic, Sharp, Sony and Toshiba, among others.
A delegation from the Japanese Parliament’s House of Representatives visited SEHAI recently and expressed satisfaction regarding the manner in which it was being managed. “SEHAI is doing great work in developing Saudi graduates with work force readiness, and we hope that they will become successful in their jobs in local companies after their graduation,” said Taro Kono, a member of the Japanese Parliament’s House of Representatives.
Other members of the delegation included Jun Matsumoto and Keisuke Suzuki.
