A joint cooperation agreement between Amman Arab University and the Technical Academy for Vocational Training
As part of Amman Arab University's efforts to build relationships and partnerships with local and regional institutions and organizations, the university signed a cooperation agreement with the Technical Academy for Vocational Training in several areas related to training programs, diplomas, and training courses both parties offer.
The agreement was signed on behalf of the university by its president, Professor Dr. Mohammed Al-Widyan, and on behalf of the academy by Engineer Ahmed Othman Aqel, the General Manager. The signing ceremony was attended by Dr. May Al-Shaikhli, Director of the Consultation and Training Center, Ms. May Jaradat, Head of the Training Department, Mr. Anas Kasou from the Media and Public Relations Department at the university, and Engineer Mazen Al-Mallah, Director of Field and External Training at the academy.
On this occasion, Al-Widyan stated that Amman Arab University is continually working to collaborate with training institutions to leverage the university's expertise for the benefit of the local community and to achieve the vision of His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al-Hussein, which emphasizes the need to continuously develop high-quality vocational training methods that meet the demands of the local and international job markets.
In turn, Aqel mentioned that the agreement would activate the main activities of the academy, focusing on providing skills training and employment support for youth aged 18 and above, particularly those who still need to pass the General Secondary Education Certificate Examination. It will also provide for the recent engineering graduates and diploma holders in modern automotive technology and industrial automation who lack technical experience and require specialized skill-based training that provides them with real opportunities in the job market.
After the agreement, Professor Dr. Mohammed Al-Widyan visited the academy's premises. He expressed his satisfaction with the advanced technologies available at the academy, enabling trainees to simulate work environments through laboratories equipped with the latest technologies.
It is worth noting that Amman Arab University has obtained a work license from the Professional and Technical Skills Development Authority, making it one of the first Jordanian universities to obtain this license. Under this license, the authority approves the certificates and training courses offered by the Consultation and Training Center at Amman Arab University.
