Car-O-Liner is gearing up for WorldSkills 2017 which will be held from October 14-18 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
WorldSkills is an ideal opportunity for youths to find their perfect vocation and Car-O-Liner takes pride in the fact that we are helping young, talented technicians get a start in their professions. As the official sponsor of the Auto Body Repair competition we are providing 23 complete workbays with equipment from alignment benches to measuring equipment and welders.
Meanwhile in Abu Dhabi workers are feverishly getting the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), one of the largest event centers in the Middle East, ready for this fantastic event. ADNEC has a capacity of nearly 130,000 m2 and a deep water mooring facility. WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017 will be the largest and most complex event ever staged at ADNEC.
Officially opened in 2007 by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates, ADNEC is distinguished by Capital Gate, a notable addition to the city’s skyline with the world’s furthest leaning tower, more than four times that of the leaning tower of Pisa.
UAE dedicated to excellence
The Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET) was established in 2010 by the directive of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
ACTVET is committed to establishing policies and standards that effectively regulate technical and vocational educational institutions in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. ACTVET is also responsible for the licensing of trainers and tutors that meet the demands of the local market.
ACTVET is the parent organisation of EmiratesSkills and the host of WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017. The event will be a landmark for the United Arab Emirates and will boost awareness of training and educational opportunities for young UAE nationals in the vocational sector.
ACTVET’s ultimate goal is increasing the number of skilled Emirati youths in rewarding career paths and foster lifelong learning and personal development.
