The UAE's Etihad Rail has launched a training and employment Emiratisation programme for aspiring engineers to work on projects such as the Pan-Emirates railway development.

The UAE’s national railway developer said that the contractors and joint venture partners working on the design and build elements of stage two of the Pan-Emirates railway network will train and hire 50 qualified UAE nationals in various fields.

They added that they would be targeting male and female graduates with majors in engineering for a three-year training programme that will equip them with global certification upon completion.

Commenting on the training programme, Etihad Rail chief corporate support officer, Saeed Al Ahbabi, said the firm would recruit from across all seven Emirates.

“The main goal of the programme is to provide UAE national engineers with the necessary experience to implement strategic projects. Further opportunities and initiatives in support of Emiratisation will be introduced in the future as the national railway project progresses.”
