Risktec International has opened a Crisis and Emergency Management Simulation Centre in Dubai today.
This is the second Simulation Centre opened for Risktec, which is a subsidiary of WA-based education and training group iCollege. The first was opened in Vietnam in partnership with Petro Vietnam Drilling Training.
The Simulation Centre uses proprietary Risktec simulation software to help companies train their employees for dangerous situations without the risk of injury. Risktec’s software is fully customisable, so each client can tailor the training to fit their specific workspace or facility.
According to iCollege, the customisation of the simulation software greatly increases the reality of emergency scenarios, and subsequently better prepares employees for potential dangers.
The new Simulation Centre will be operated in partnership with Proclad Academy in Dubai — a subsidiary of UK-based Proclad Group. Proclad Academy already offers globally accredited training.
iCollege Managing Director Ash Katta commended the team at Risktec International for arranging a strong partnership with Proclad.
“The board of iCollege are pleased to see Risktec International’s second Oil and Gas focussed training facility located centrally in Dubai giving us the capacity to service the entire Middle East,” Ash said.
Proclad Group CEO and Chairman of Proclad Academy Yaseen M. Jaffer said the partnership is part of Proclad’s goal to provide the most up-to-date and relevant training available.
“We have backed up this goal by partnering with world class training and educational institutions,” Yaseen said.
“Risktec International is no exception, bringing 18 years of experience in Crisis Management and Emergency Response training to the Strategic Alliance and to many of our existing clients in the region,” he said.
The available training at the new Simulation Centre includes four packages, ranging in price from US$2800 to US$15,000. Profit from the courses will be shared equally with Risktec and Proclad Academy after travel and instructor costs.
The first training at the new facility is expected to kick off later this year, and the agreement between Risktec and Proclad lasts until December 31, 2020.
iCollege shares are up a slight 2.86 per cent today, trading for 7.2 cents each in a $37.85 million market cap.
