Arabian American Center January Training & Development
Program Title:
Understanding Significance of Chemicals and Optimize Operation
27.01.2019 - 31.01.2019
$ 3900


Training Methodology:

     Facilitated by experienced chemical specialists, this course will be conducted as a highly interactive work session, encouraging participants to share their own experiences and apply the program me material to real-life situations. Case studies from different industries will be investigated. Each delegate will receive an extensive reference manual, as well as case studies, while worked out solutions will be handed out to the delegates on conclusion of group discussions.

   To ensure the concepts introduced during the course are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.
