Ducab Vocational Educational Employees travel to Hofmann Engineering in Perth Australia

Ducab, the leading cable manufacturer in the Middle East, has arranged to send two of its top UAE National vocational educational employees to Australia for international training and experience for a month.
The two vocational educational employees; Mr. Mohammed Al Zaabi and Mr. Obaid Ali Tamimi, joined Ducab in 2008 as Operators. As graduates of the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) and Vocational Educations Development Centre (VEDC), Mohammed and Obaid were hand-picked by Ducab’s National Development Program (NDP) team in collaboration with the college of TAFE based on their recent achievements at Ducab.
“I am very proud of Mohammed and Obaid, it is always great to see UAE nationals strive to have such outstanding performance and create a glamorous path for their future at a young age, it is an honour for Ducab to have such talented people and an opportunity for Ducab to support the future of tomorrow.” said Mr. Ahmad Bin Hassan Al Shaikh, Chairman of Ducab
Mohammed and Obaid will spend the next month gaining valuable international experience working at Hoffman Engineering in Perth, Australia where they will be able to increase their skills and gain valuable insight into how industrial manufacturing companies operate overseas.
“Ducab has always taken pride in its employees who are the source of Ducab’s past, present and future success. As part of Ducab’s goals and values, it ensures that all our employees are always supported by different trainings and special programs. We are very pleased with this great opportunity, and wish the youngest of our team the very best” Said Andrew Shaw, Ducab’s Managing Director.

In 2007, Ducab signed a MoU with IAT to support its students and this is the first overseas work placement that is organized for an IAT graduate is a first. Commenting on the news, Dr. Abdullatif Al Shamsi, Director of IAT said:
“We are thrilled to see how far out students have come in such a short period of time. We wish them all the success in their endeavours overseas and hope that they will be an inspiration and role model to their younger colleagues.”
Ducab’s National Development Program was initiated in 2008 and currently has 60 UAE nationals enrolled in it. This program which includes training sessions, tasks and challenging goals is a platform for Ducab’s UAE national employees career path and a guide to their future.

This trip guarantees great benefits for both the development of the employees and the growth of the company.

This is the sort of experience that enables future generations to think globally” Said Dr. Saeed Al Barwani, GM of HR and Information Technology Systems.
