The ACCET recently examined T&D’s academic, job skills and professional training centers and reaccredited them for five more years, while extending accreditation for the first time not only to four more T&D entities — the Professional English Language Center, the College Preparatory Center, the Corporate Safety Training and the Driver/Heavy Equipment Training Operation Unit, but also to one of the local training providers, namely the Saudi Petroleum Services Polytechnic (SPSP).
T&D is one of some 225 training organizations in the world with ACCET accreditation. It should be known that ACCET is the only accrediting agency recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the International Organization for Standardization as a reliable authority on the quality of educational services and programs.
The positive results from a year-long accreditation process conducted by a team of 30 professionals from T&D and led by Musa Rabba, the supervisor of the Quality Assurance Unit, occasioned a ceremony that was held at the Industrial Security Center.
Huda Al-Ghoson, Executive Director of Employee Relations and Training, commented, “These certificates from ACCET not only constitute a stamp of quality from a recognized external accrediting agency, but the accreditation process has helped us in our journey for continuous quality improvement. It is an excellent eye opener by a third party.”
T&D General Manager, Nasser Al-Nafisee, observed: “As a company, we are extremely proud of the re-accreditation by ACCET, which not only demonstrates our dedication to quality, but also showcases our commitment to excellence in education and training.”
