Industry alliance creates Malta training hub for the oil & gas industry

Three leading training institutions have formed an alliance to create a Malta-based training hub to cater to the growing needs of the maritime, aviation, and oil and gas industry. ISTC, MMH Academy and Motherwell Bridge have combined their expertise to offer tailored programmes in their own industry work environments across a three-mile radius in proximity to Malta International Airport.

A programme list of more than 25 courses features programmes in diverse disciplines including drilling, marine and technical tuition, a variety of welding certifications, and emergency response, disaster management, environment protection, and health and safety training.

The courses are aimed at international companies seeking to train or retrain their teams in certified environments, people seeking to embark on careers in these fields, enhance their skill set and obtain certification and accreditation.

All three training centres are accredited and recognised by bodies including IATA, Transport Malta, the International Well Control Forum, OPITO, NCHFE and others.

“Combining our skills and knowledge in a single alliance will allow us to access greater opportunities in countries and areas of business, previously closed off to a single operator,” Andrew Gilravey, ISTC College Director explained. “It will also help us to strengthen our current position in markets where we are already established.”

“The consolidation of similar markets and clients through collaboration delivers a unique value proposition within the MENA region,” Angelique Maggi, MMH’s Director added. “This will position Malta at the forefront of this industry. This collaboration also reflects a new way of working between the different players in the industry. Collaboration is key to success.”

“The three training centres, close to each other and to Malta’s international airport target the Oil and Gas industry and related sectors, Ruben Cuschieri, Managing Director at Motherwell Bridge stated. With over 25 courses on offer and a combined training experience of over 20 years this ‘one stop shop’ will address the needs of employers and employees alike.”
