Saudi Institute of Electronics and Appliances
Electronics and home appliances play an important role in the national economy and in creating new technical job opportunities in the field of electronics, office equipment, home appliances, air conditions industries and electro mechanics. The idea of establishing a non-profit specialized electronics and home appliances institute was to qualify the Saudi youth and provide them with technical skills. Saudi businessmen managing the electronics and home appliance sectors agreed to establish the Saudi Electronics and Home Appliances Institute (SEHAI) to provide high technical training for Saudi youth in the field of electronic technology, air conditions, and home appliances and maintenance. The businessmen obliged themselves to provide job opportunities for the graduates as technicians in the fields of electronics, air-conditioners, and home appliances all over the Kingdom upon their graduation. The companies will manage and operate the institute, select and design the Curriculum, and determine necessary equipments, instruments and laboratories. The Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) supported the businessmen’s initiative and made a strategic partnership with them. On Saturday, Safar 13th 1428H corresponding to March 3rd 2007, an agreement between the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) and the businessmen participating in the SEHAI, was executed and signed.
Also, on Monday, Safar 7th 1430H, corresponding to February 2nd 2009, a technical cooperation agreement was signed in Tokyo with the Japanese party to design the institute`s curriculum and programs, as well as its equipments, instruments and laboratories; and providing Japanese experts and instructors training in Japan.
