Activities in the Field of  Training & Promotion

 

Within the framework of NREA’s general goals which include education, training and information dissemination, two well equipped facilities “one is located at NREA’s premises and the other is in NREA’s site” at Hurghada were established. The facilities play an important role as centers for general and specialized training programs on local and regional levels with highly-qualified trainers.

The training programs which aim at spreading awareness and knowledge among various groups vary according to the type and level of trainees, the programs include:

o General programs (for one or two weeks) dealing with renewable energy sources and their applications in general. The programs are directed to students in the universities and public sector for the purpose of increasing awareness.

o Specialized programs directed to engineers and technicians working in the field, including theoretical and practical training and visits to project sites.

o    Training programs for NREA’ staff to improve their professional skills.

o    Summer training program for universities students.
