The Guyana Technical Training College Incorporated (GTTCI) is set to launch operations by next year, with the first phase nearing completion this quarter. The government of Guyana and ExxonMobil are the major partners in this venture. SBM Offshore is playing a lead role in the establishment of a safe live plant made available for anyone working in Guyana’s oil and gas sector to be able to practice the skillset that is needed for offshore.

The investment in the college is expected to exceed US$100 million.

Spanning 18.4 acres, GTTCI forms a key part of a larger project alongside a Hospitality and Tourism Institute and the Oil and Gas Training College, aiming to equip Guyanese individuals for roles in the oil and gas and hospitality sectors. The facility aims to provide industry-standard training akin to the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) within the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Located in Berbice, this initiative aligns with government plans to decentralize economic growth, extending opportunities beyond the confines of Georgetown and its surrounding areas.
