Tamayoz training program

The Tamayoz training program was established in 2012 in support of His Highness the Emir’s vision to increase participation of Qatari nationals in the workforce. The program provides professional and personal development opportunities for valued partner Qatar Petroleum and joint ventures RasGas and Qatargas, covering six critical competency areas: leadership and personal effectiveness; project management; commercial; operations excellence; technical (surface and subsurface); and safety, health and the environment.ExxonMobil Qatar is the platinum sponsor of Reach Out To Asia’s (ROTA) Youth Service Club (RYSC) initiative and youth leadership training. RYSCs are a network of nine self-directed extracurricular youth community service clubs from 14 different schools and universities across Qatar. The clubs provide a unique opportunity for secondary and university students between ages 14-24 years to develop leadership skills, gain understanding of international and community development issues, and gain experience through the delivery of projects that address such issues.

By enabling youth to hone leadership skills through hands-on experience, ROTA is energizing youth to reach their full potential as innovators, entrepreneurs, future employers and global leaders.

Tamayoz has grown to become one of the leading professional development training programs for the energy sector in Qatar with more than 2,300 individuals receiving training since the program’s inception.

2015 saw a significant development in the Tamayoz training program – the inauguration of new training facilities at EMRQ, located in the Qatar Science and Technology Park. These facilities reflect the growing importance of the Tamayoz training program among ExxonMobil Qatar’s industry partners as a specialized training platform that will continue to provide long-term gains and outstanding support. It also marks another important step in our efforts to support Qatar’s national workforce development plans.

Outside of the Tamayoz training program, ExxonMobil Qatar offers Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas and RasGas employees training assignments in Houston, Texas. Thus far, 52 Qataris have benefited from these opportunities.
