Dr. Rashid bin Mohammed Al-Zahrani has been the deputy governor of the Technical and Vocational Training Corp. (TVTC) since 2013.
He has held several managerial and leadership positions at various government institutions. Before his latest appointment, he was the chairman of the TVTC in Makkah.
Al-Zahrani is currently heading the Saudi delegation to the 45th edition of WorldSkills, the world championships of vocational skills, in Kazan, Russia.
The competition started in 1950 after the Spanish Workers Union organized the first national vocational competition in Madrid.
Al-Zahrani said: "The competition will see the participation of 1,300 experts from 63 countries in 56 categories. The Saudi delegation will compete in the aircraft maintenance and welding categories after specialists trained them."
He previously worked as a geotechnical engineer at the High Commission for the Development of Riyadh. He also worked as a teaching assistant at the Technical College in Abha before moving to the US to pursue his postgraduate degrees.
He received a master's degree in civil engineering and a Ph.D. in geotechnical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Al-Zahrani returned to Abha as an assistant professor of civil engineering at the department of civil and architectural technology. He then became the head of the department before being appointed dean of the college.
Following his time in Abha, he moved to the Jazan region to become dean of its technical college and regional chairman of the TVTC.
