In line with Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is projected to undergo significant population, economic, and industrial growth, over the next decade. The energy sector is central to the country’s economic progress, overall prosperity and a cornerstone to self-sufficiency and sustainability. Additionally, a key enabler of this growth is the power sector which is expected to generate significant need for highly skilled and specialized workforce in the power and energy sector.
The National Power Academy (NPA) aspires to play a pivotal role in achieving this vision. Backed by the industry leaders, the academy is a unique and ambitious public-private initiative to provide specialized technical training programs, with the goal of creating qualified Saudi workforce equipped with the necessary skills and expertise to support the ever-growing national energy sector, in both public and private domains. The training modules have been designed and prepared in consultation with the regional industry experts, to ensure the skills developed are perfectly aligned with the industry demands and requirements; making it beneficial for both the students and the industry.
Accordingly, a letter of Intention was signed in December 2014, and subsequently a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the Founding Stakeholders in December 2015, endorsing the establishment of a world, industry-led National Power Academy.
