Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery has introduced a new apprentice course in Riyadh to train Saudi women to operate forklifts, after the company signed formal service provider contracts with several national institutions.
The company has allocated an experienced and highly qualified team to train the first batch of trainees about forklift-related procedures. Participants in the training program will learn about the safety requirements and standards required for forklift operators, and will receive a completion certificate from Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery at the end of the course.
The training course represents an exciting new challenge for Saudi women who have seen numerous new career opportunities open up for them recently, particularly at Abdul Latif Jameel companies.
The new training program is part of the company’s policy to be at the forefront of national developments and new initiatives, and further ensures they are keeping up with market changes. Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery directors enthusiastically approved the forklift course as a mark of their support for the Saudi Arabian leadership’s determination to empower all members of society. The new course for women reinforces the company’s belief in the importance of utilizing the potential of Saudi women to deliver on the ambition of Vision 2030.
