Oman's logistics sector to develop first dedicated skills unit

Oman’s Ministry of Manpower, which is represented by the Occupational Standards Center (OSC), has granted an official license to the Oman Logistics Association (OLA) to establish a first-of-its-kind sectoral skills unit (SSU) for the logistics sector.

According to the state-run Oman News Agency, the SSU will be responsible for monitoring the structure and needs of the labor market; setting up professional standards for the sector; aligning education and training outcomes; and developing national cadres equipped with the appropriate skills required for the sector.

The license was granted in the presence of representatives from Oman’s Ministry of Manpower, Ministry of Transport, the Asiad Group, members of the Implementation Committee, as well as officials from the center for professional standards and the Omani Society for Logistics.

The chairman of the Oman Logistics Association, Aflah Al-Hadrami, said: “The sectoral skills unit will play a pivotal role in developing a system for sustainable skills development based on the needs of the sector. It will provide a platform "for the sector", managed "by the sector", while issuing center legislation, controlling licensing, and operating these units.”
