DIA signs key training deal with Dugas.

DUBAI: Dubai Industrial Academy (DIA) has signed an agreement with Dubai Natural Gas Company (Dugas) for training its process operators on troubleshooting and fault diagnosis.

The five-day programme will enhance the process operators' on-the-job analytical skills, while giving them a wider understanding of the mechanism of a gas plant.

DIA is a division of Dubai Industrial City.

Utilising plant manuals and plant pipe and instruments drawings (P&IDs), the initiative will highlight solutions for addressing some of the high-risk challenges operators' face on site in the course of their work.

"Through its comprehensive and industry specific training progammes, Dubai Industrial Academy aims to increase the competency level of the operational staff and upgrade their working skills," Dubai Industrial City vice-president Rashed Al Ansari said.

We consider this an imperative necessity given the hazards that plant operators are exposed to in the gas industry.

"This programme also reflects our objective to support the industrial sector through enhancing the competencies of professionals working in Dubai and across the region, and eventually creating a talent pool of technically qualified personnel."

In the run up to the agreement, DIA successfully trained two shifts of Dugas process operators out of six Dugas shifts, each consisting of 12 process operators.
