A real story of a determined young Ghanaian mother. She turned up with her suckling baby at the WAEC Hall, Tamale, yesterday to write an aptitude test for selection to train as a Mechanical Technician under the Govt’s Accelerated Oil and Gas Capacity Building Programme (AOGC).
The programme, sponsored by the Petroleum Commission, has recruited 100 young people with a degree or HND in Engineering.
Applicants were selected from across Ghana to train as technicians at no cost them to work on offshore oil and gas installations such as FPSOs and drill ships.
The aim is to reduce the expatriate technicians in our offshore oil and gas industry.
A fully sponsored training for 6 months in residence leading to the UK City and Guilds Qualification. Cost is US$ 7,500 to train one person.
