Around 300 Omanis in the real estate sector will be trained following an MoU signed by Oman Real Estate Association (ORA) and Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). Hasan Juma Al Lawati, vice chairman of ORA and Raoul Restuccim, managing director of PDO, signed the MoU recently.
The training courses will also include Omani searching for jobs in in the real estate industry. This step comes following recent regulatory decisions which were issued by the Ministry of Housing. The ministry has ordered brokers to have a training course on real estate brokerage in order to be qualified to practice the job. ORA, according to the agreement, will prepare the educational material in cooperation with seasoned lecturers.
The programme will consist of six courses, each will enroll around 50 trainees, according to a press release. All participants will receive a certificate from ORA, approved by the Ministry of Manpower after passing the level-exams. “We are happy to work with PDO and we value their support to the ORA which will positively reflect on the country’s youth,” Al Lawati said.
