Due to the gap of local skilled workers in the mining industry in Australia, Nasser S. Al Hajri Corporation (NSH) wants to build-up training centres in India and Australia to provide a skilled foreign work force for the industry, reports the Hindu Business Line.
NSH will open its office in Perth, Australia, on July 5, Dr Ravi Pillai, managing director, said here. Gradually, operations will be expanded to other locations such as Queensland, Brisbane, and Melbourne. NSH has already set up two companies in Australia. The first is the NaSAH Australia Pty Ltd, which will provide industrial service for LNG and mining projects in Australia. The second is the OGM Technical Institute Pty Ltd, which will work jointly with recognised Australian technical and further education institutions (TAFE).
The aim is to train, assess, certify and provide skilled workers to ensure availability of superior skilled labour workforce to deliver projects in Australia, Dr Pillai said.
