International Workforce Development

SAIT is a leader in providing applied training and workforce development solutions for building capacity in emerging markets.


Clients Trust Our Experience and Expertise

For over 30 years, we have been serving the needs and requirements of academic institutions, companies and governments around the globe to build local capability and develop skilled workforces for employment in various industry sectors.

As a trusted training partner for companies including Angola LNG, Chevron Angola, ConocoPhillips APLNG, Esso Angola, ExxonMobil, PDVSA and  Petro-Canada, we have collaborated on large-scale, multi-year international workforce development initiatives with positive results for their business and operations, and for their learners and local communities.

Since 2003, we have graduated more than 600 oil and gas operators from various countries with our international workforce development programs. Our extensive training experience with regional organizations led us in 2012 to be selected as a partner of choice by Kasipkor Holding to assist in the development of the Atyrau Oil and Gas Training Centre (APEC) in Kazakhstan. Ongoing SAIT support establishing the facilities, curriculum and instructor base to deliver high-caliber skills to local petroleum professionals have bolstered APEC's capabilities as a training centre.
