2013-12-16

Bringing its courses to members and customers in the Middle East and surrounding regions, NACE International today announced it will open a new training facility in Dubai, UAE. The new training center will feature two classrooms offering NACE International’s most popular courses and the NACE Institute’s most in-demand certifications.

As industry and governments worldwide demanded NACE Institute certified professionals, NACE International leadership recognized that a permanent facility in an easily accessible location was needed. “I hear from business owners, CEOs, and human resources professionals almost daily about how valuable NACE Institute certified professionals are,” said NACE President, Tushar Jhaveri. “The demand is there, the jobs are there, the future employees are there, and now we are bringing the training to them to meet the demand.”

Courses will be administered and proffered by NACE International throughout the year (except during Ramadan), with the organization’s most popular programs such as cathodic protection and coating inspection leading the way. Eventually, the entire portfolio of NACE International’s courses will be offered from the training center including topics such as general corrosion, coatings, internal corrosion for pipelines, pipeline integrity management, and more.

The NACE International Training Center will be located in the renowned Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), an 18 million sq. ft. state-of-the-art campus dedicated to higher education. Open six days per week, the NACE International Training Center will serve more than 1,000 students annually. Located 25 kilometers from the Dubai International Airport, the DIAC campus is conveniently accessible to those coming to the region from Asia, Africa and Europe.
