Tavcom have announced the successful completion of a CCTV & Control Room Operations training course for 180 Kuwaiti students.
The contract to carry out the training course, which is part of a comprehensive two year training programme for Kuwaitis who are looking to take on security roles within the gas and oil market sector, was awarded to Tavcom by Risk Management & Security Consultancy Co. W.L.L (RIMSCO), Kuwait’s leading security and risk consulting company.
Carried out over a two week period, the course comprised a mixture of classroom training and practical ‘hands-on’ experience using purpose built workstations which simulated a control room environment, as well as visits to the Shuiba Oil Refinery which provided an opportunity for the students to gain an appreciation of a ‘live’ control room..
“We are of course delighted to have been awarded this contract which we won despite stiff competition from a large number of other training companies, most of which were locally based,” said Paul Tennent, managing director of Tavcom. “We had just three weeks to produce the detailed course itinerary and materials but David White, who was our Lead Tutor for the contract, supported by four other members of the hand-picked Tavcom training team, did an excellent job preparing for and conducting the course.
“RIMSCO have fed back to us their satisfaction as the quality of the training we have provided, but it has to be said that our ability to do so was underpinned by the help we received from RIMSCO personnel who could not be more helpful in respect of the logistics and management of the students.”
