- Guyana to create a new national training institute focused on the oil and gas sector
The government of Guyana announced the initiation of work on a national training institute under the Guyana Oil and Gas Energy Chamber (GOGEC). In early 2021, the government unveiled a new oil and gas training center to provide new opportunities to local workers in Guyana. This latest announcement will expand the training center and help upskill Guyana workers.
What are the Changes?
The government of Guyana will work with the private oil and gas sector to create new local business opportunities for workers in Guyana. Under this latest announcement, the government plans to build a national training institute for workers employed by the oil and gas industry to gain labor skills. Under this institute, the government aims to train over 1,000 workers through programs focused on the oil and gas industry in the country. Short-term certification programs for welders will also be an aspect of the training institute.
