The National Energy Skills Center (NESC)

The National Energy Skills Center (NESC) is a non-profit institution incorporated on July 15, 1997 with the primary purpose of building the human capital in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It has its genesis in a Trust Deed between the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (GORTT) and the then Atlantic LNG Company Limited, to address the pressing demand for skilled welders to work on the Atlantic LNG, Train 1 project. It was envisaged then, as the solution to the need for a premier training provider to lead national training initiatives. 

 

 From its first Campus at Point Fortin, the NESC now operates 11 NESC Campuses across Trinidad and Tobago. Launched in December 2013, the Company also operates the NESC Drilling Academy, a fully integrated, open-access technical training institute. It is designed to deliver robust curricula focused on training for the energy sector and is the first of its kind in the Caribbean, Central and South America. The NESC offers 3-year Journeyman Diploma programmes in Automotive and Heavy Equipment; Building Construction and Maintenance; Plant Operations and Maintenance; Welding; Information and Music Technology and Drilling Rig Programmes. In addition to these programmes, over twenty (20) part–time and full-time courses are offered at all of NESC ‘s Campuses. 

 

The NESC is both ISO Certified and ACTT registered and its procedures and methods of training delivery are designed to produce highly-skilled persons who can quickly assimilate into the work environment. The NESC remains proud of the thousands of graduates locally, regionally and internationally who continue to contribute to the economic development of their respective communities and nations. 

 

 The NESC also provides customized technical training solutions to companies across all sectors of the local economy through its Business Development Department. Its highly cross-functional team, works with industry clients to develop and market courses and programmes to fill their employees’ skill gaps. The training delivered contributes toward the building of the client’s internal competency pool and is reflected in higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness.
