By next year, the Guyana Technical Training College Incorporated (GTTCI) will commence operations, as the first half is slated for completion this quarter. This is according to ExxonMobil Guyana President, Alistair Routledge. 

“…we will see, by the beginning of next year, Guyanese technicians being trained in full time,” he reported at an October 17 press conference. 

Guyanese construction providers needed to build new petroleum training institute for Exxon

SBM Offshore, the company building and operating the floating production storage and offloading vessels operating offshore Guyana, is playing a lead role in the establishment of a key component of the training facility.

The GTTCI facility, spanning 18.4 acres, is part of a larger blueprint that includes a Hospitality and Tourism Institute and the Oil and Gas Training College. The project is meant to train Guyanese to take up roles in the oil and gas and hospitality sectors.

The facility is intended to prepare personnel for industry-level training equivalent to that of the rest of the Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ). 

The decision to situate the college in Berbice is consistent with government plans to decentralize the economic boom and ensure that opportunities reach beyond Georgetown and its environs.
